Thank You Times Four


We got to see our son and daughter-in-law for the first time in a year and a half due to Covid.  We brought home a hoard of Christmas presents for Tom and I and two grandsons.  I decided to make a card that all four of us could write on.  Inside the card Tom and I both have our own sections and there are two flaps for Lucas and Ethan.

The flaps did not photograph very well, but you can get the idea. I also did not attach the kids writing pages yet, just incase we need a redo.  You never know with kids!

The imsge is by Laurie Furnell Ink.  I have purchased quite a few of her items, but have never gotten a chance to use them.  I colored the images with Copic markers.  The paper was from JoAnns.  I bought it for my daughter's baby shower. (I cut out the baby related parts.)  My grandson is turning nine in August so I'd say I've had this for a while.

I think I will finally start entering in challenges again.  I haven't been doing that for duch a long while.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

What a fab idea! Years from now, they'll open it up and talk about the Covid Lockdown of 2020 and how they couldn't get their presents to the Grandparents until 6 mos. later. Great idea and beautifully made. Us both going on low carb at same time - great minds in pain think alike! hehe Hope you feel better. I'm having a cheat day for the 4th - gonna have chili dogs, macaroni salad, beans, watermelon and a few chunk chocolate chip cookies! Then go right back to the grind on Monday. If I can keep it all to one 6-hr. window, some say it will boost my leptin hormone and keep losing. Will let you know... xoxo
