Thank You card

When we took our trip to Milwaukee for the motorcycle rally we overnighted at a cousin's house in Rocklin. They were a wonderful host and hostess and we enjoyed having the opportunity to spend some time with their children. Here is the thank you I'm sending to them.
I'm not a big sticker fan, but this one did the trick. The motorcycle doesn't look anything like ours, but that's okay. I used the "rule of 3" on the front. The letters were cut using my Sidekick. The remaining sticker was used on the inside. The trim on the inside is from the fabric dept. It's a "faux leather" set with eyelets. I used it on a scrapbook layout years ago.

A Little Fruit Humor

I am fortunate to share my birthday with two wonderful people. One is my husband's Uncle Randy, the other, a fellow children's librarian, Tami Finley.

What prompts one to buy pear paper? More importantly, why would someone manufacture pear paper. Anyway, I saw it yesterday at the new scrapbook store in Fairfield. It's from Reminisce and double-sided. For some reason, I was challenged to create something with it. The result was this birthday card. I actually made two - one for Randy and one for Tami.

If anyone has anymore "pear" humor, let me know. I have most of a sheet left!!
