~~ 1st Responder's Thank You Card ~~

Hi Y'all ! As many of you know,Dan and I were in one of the many ( 46 , I think) tornado's that ravaged our state last week. The Pace's Point Volunteer Fire Depatment were johnny- on- the- spot that night and made thier way to us within an hour or so!!! When I heard the chain saws buzzin, I knew they were on the way! That entire body of volunteers will forever be My Hero's !! I wanted to make them a card and TRY to express my gratitude, although words and a card could never do that! I used Camp Out for the trees and sign , Summer Vacation for the cute lil travel trailer. ( That's what we have at the lake, a travel trailer, hence the cut) Life's a Beach was used for the life preserver, Create a Critter for the lake and the stars and moon are an EKSuccess punch.I did lots of embossing ,some inking and poppin , added the red and white Bakers Twine and a vintage button . Thanks so much for taking a peek !!!



Oh Joy, this is just the most perfect Thank You card!!! There's not enough words for all of the volunteers that are out there working. The Good Lord sents the best doesn't He?! :)


Great card and I'm glad you and hubby are safe!

Great card!! Love the camper and the woodsy theme! I am so glad you and your husband made it through all of the storms OK!



This is a great card! They will love it. I am very glad that you and your hubby are alright!


that is so sweet of you to make them a card, volunteers are so often over looked. I am sure they will enjoy it. I love camp out and just used it for my brothers glad that you still have your mojo after what you and Dan have been through. I sometimes think making a card is what keeps me going.

Have a great day,

What a wonderful way for you to let them know how much there service ment to you. Perfect card for this thank you......


Joy, I'm so glad you made it through the tornadoes. Donna's town of Ringgold, GA was hit. This card is perfect and so cute. I'm sure these guys have never gotten anything so lovely.


Just an amazing card and perfect for those wonderful men. I'm sure they'll be thrilled. xxD


So glad you are okay! My mom and dad have a place at Lake Martin, matter of fact, I'm at the lake now. I've been coming to Lake Martin since I was 5 yrs old, and I'm now 40. It's so sad to see the damage that was left from the torndaoes. My mom and I love your cards!! They are beautiful!!!

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
