Tanks a Lot

Sorry I've been away for so long! Wow--what a week. My New York trip was very worthwhile, I really did get some good information that I can incorporate right away in my business. And DHs retirement luncheon was phenomenal! His people really put a lot of work and effort into making it rememorable. They had a short film all about tanks which my DH really loved, then a slide show of photos from spanning his career. They even had pictures of "Princess Winnie" which everyone called her. He got some lovely gifts, and one of them was wrapped and we were instructed not to open until we got home. Not only did it have gifts for Damon & me, but they also put a toy in for Winnie!!! As soon as I took it out, she knew it was for her! She's so smart. I was so touched. I took her picture with her playing with it, so we'll include pictures in our thank you note.

These are the thank you notes I made for Damon to use. He turned pens to give to some of the people that worked for him, and used the cards also. They seemed to be genuinely touched that Damon took time to make something for them.

The cards were very easy, and I really enjoyed making them. Here's the details:

Stamps: Dee Gruening Tanks a Lot
Paper: Various DSP, old olive, close to cocoa, very vanilla, chocolate chip
Ink: Old Olive, Versamark
Misc: brads, ribbon, buttons, eyelets

I'll try to get some additional cards posted tomorrow. I need to clean up my scrap room before I can stamp. I have been trying to unmount my stamps most of today, but it's really going to take a long time to do them all. But, I already believe it's going to be worth it. The space savings will be great.

More later

Happy Stamping!

Patty & Winnie
