Pillowcases and Thank Yous

Our two sons are headed on a mission trip this upcoming weekend.  A wonderful person from church made them pillowcases that were personalized.  Each participant in the mission trip had to let her know their interests or nickname.  Our older son said he was interested in music.  And you can see the pillowcase she made for him.  Nice, eh?
Our younger son stated that he wanted to be called, "sauce".  Sauce?  Really?  Sauce?  What in the world do you do with that?  Well, she couldn't find material with bottles of sauce all over it, so she did this instead.  Very clever, don't you think?  He really likes it.  He showed it to me the instant he was in the door.  For a 15-year-old, that means they really like it.
Here's the thank-you card I made for the boys to give the pillowcase maker.  Crumb Cake is the base, with Riding Hood Red next.  Very Vanilla makes up the base for the circles.  They were punched out with the 1-3/8" circle punch. 

I also used the 3/4" circle punch and the Lovely Labels punch.  The ink is the Basic Grey and the Lovely Little Labels is the stamp set.  I really love that new DSP, Fanfair or is it Fanfare? 
See?  I love it so much, I can't remember exactly how to spell what it's called. LOL.  Anyway, I do really love it.  It's so pretty and goes with so many colors of ink and card stock.  Great for using on the boys' cards, too.  Oh yeah -- can't forget the button from the Neutrals pack on this upper right-hand side of the card!  There's a piece or Riding Hood Red card stock in there as faux thread.

  1. ouch your rotators cuff? Am I going to have to carry your stuff for you at convention? I have a great idea you can pay me to do that. LOL! I think I am going to not do any organized swaps to save money. I want a all the big shot stuff and about 9 or 10 sets out of the Holiday Seasonal plus all the big shot dies and folders and punches. Geesh who wanted that to come out so close to the Annual Catalog? I have a catalog order going in this week for a hostess of mine. I wish I could get to 20 grand this year. I thought I was closer. Darn it. Now what was so funny about my comment the other day. I was serious we get that set at Convention so wondered why you bought it? That was all. I hope you aren't in too much pain.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love hearing from you!
