It is so very important to say, “Thank You” to people. Our society has gotten so rude that we rarely say “Please” and “Thank You” anymore. It really makes a difference to people when we do take the time to be courteous. Last week, a lady at church did something for me. It can’t have been easy, because I know she has many things that she is involved in right now, so thanking her is high on my list of things to do. Fortunately, today’s StampTV challenge is to make a thank you card and give it to someone. This was the perfect challenge! I also wanted to participate in the SpeedyTV sketch with a twist challenge, as I love the stamp set that is the prize. The twist was to add lace to the sketch. It wouldn’t have been a problem as I saw the perfect piece in my lace bag, yesterday. A couple of hours after sorting through and untangling lace, I found all sorts of amazing lace and trims and finally found the piece I was looking for. Whew! I have to find a better way to store lace than in a kitchen trash bag. There is lace in this stash that I’m sure is older than I am (part of it is from one of my grandmothers). There is even a piece that matched my wedding dress. It’s always fun to find things that would be just perfect for a certain idea.
Now that I’ve rambled, here is the card I came up with.
This wasn’t the piece of lace I had been looking for, but after a bit of trimming here and there, I got this one to about the right size. It is really beautiful lace, though you can’t see it through the teapot.
