A BIG Thank You!

My friend and cardmaking mentor, Liz Thayer, was hostess for our Girls' Get-Away Cardmaking Event at The Hobby Hideaway in Snohomish, and I can't thank her enough for the wonderful time that was had by all.  She wore herself out with menu planning, shopping, food pre-prep, wonderful handmade goodies presented each day, and cardmaking kits to put together.  Of course, this is not to mention all the fun ladies who were invited, came, and brought their friendly and fantastic good humor right along with them!  We all had on our "let it all hang out" attitudes, and an uproariously good time was had by all as we made cards, played games, shared gifts, drank yummy beverages, ate yummy food, and gabbed the days and night away.  I do believe I was awake almost around the clock, and I had to go home just to get some sleep!  It was a WONDERFUL Mother's Day get-away that I thank my family for encouraging me to go and have a great time!

I thought I would prepare a little thank you card with a Starbucks gift card for Liz, in hopes that she would buy a Frappacino, sit back, put up her feet, and enjoy a rest (aside from working every day) to recuperate.  THANKS LIZ for a fantastic four-day event!  You outdid yourself!

I finished off this card by creating a coordinating design on the inside with the larges THANK YOU that would fit!

And, then I made a little gift card holder on the inside as well. . .all the better to send the Starbucks treat!
