This past Thursday night, Jimmy and I had the most enjoyable evening with some new friends, Kevin & Shelly. To make a long story short, we had never met, but a mutual friend gave them our names. We have been trying to get together with them for about 3 years or so and we were finally able to work it out. They invited us to their home for a delicious dinner. We had such a great visit and now feel like we have 2 new friends! Anyway… all of this to say that I wanted to send them a thank you note for the wonderful dinner. I’ve had the Friendship Preserves stamp set for a couple of months now but have not used it and thought the “Thanks” stamp from the set would be perfect to use for this card. And, when I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, I thought it would work perfectly with this set.
So, here’s what I came up with. I hope Kevin & Shelly like it.
