I pushed my luck recently and had to appeal to the mercy of a family "friend with connections" to help. When someone does a friendly favor for you, the least you can do is make a special card to say thanks, and this is the card that I made for her . . . and tucked it into a nice little package with a set of note cards. Don't you just love the "sentiment" on this card? I found it in a paper pad while shopping with my mother a while back, and all of the papers (4x6) in the pad have cute quips on them. This one, in particular, seemed perfect for the situation! There's a story behind the doily, too. The weather on Sunday was soooooo pretty here, and my guys and I went for an afternoon of shooting at my brother-in-law's house. Afterward, we went for an early dinner at Red Robin. My husband ordered a cup of clam chowder, and it was served with this gorgeous doily under the cup. Who would have thought that I'd find such a pretty embellishment at Red Robin?!?! I told my husband to (please) give me that doily before he dripped chowder on it and, as it turned out, there were actually a total of five doilies stuck together. Gotta love it when the kitchen or wait staff is too busy to make sure they've separated those things! I wasn't sure how I would use one of the doilies on this card, but I was determined to use one and am quite pleased with how it looks. The ribbon and buttons are from Stampin' Up!'s Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack (a Sale-a-Bration product), and the rhinestone jewels are also from Stampin' Up!
