Expressing Thanks

Even though I have become a very grateful person and preach about having an attitude of gratitude,  I still fall short expressing thanks and gratitude to individuals.  It is so nice to have someone say "thank you".  It helps debunk some of those insecure feelings, gives me a shot of reality that someone noticed me and some of my behind the scenes work, that I really do have some significance.  I know that others must feel the same.  So,  I am getting better about sending thank you cards.  Here is one I made to let a person know how much I appreciate her unselfish acts of kindness.

I used the sketch at Stamplorations:
I used my new Stamploration stencil.
After inking a portion of the stencil with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment. Everything good so far and then a smudge from the dark pigment embossing powder - ugh.  Thus the splatters. I thought that was a better option than starting over.

    1. Beautiful card and I agree with all you said about telling people thanks! It does makes them feel better and us also when the thanks are returned to us!!! Love the sentiment!!! Where can I find it??

    2. Sentiment is by Unity. I don't remember if it is part of a set or not because I store my stamps mostly by categories and themes rather than by company.
