Thanks For All You Do

I'm scheduling my post for this month's PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop early. I'll link it up tonight after I get home from work.  I almost ran out of time to make something for this month's challenge,  but I haven't really used this Mat Stack 2 Set....and that was the challenge.  Use a PTI set that hasn't seen a lot of ink.  I realized after purchasing the set that I don't own the coordinating die.  I'll fix that soon! 

On to the card...I made a male thank you card. I used my Paper Crate Restoration papers and borders for the card.  For the background, I used my well inked Text Styles set.  Hope you like it!

And most importantly, in news around the house, Jonathon got his tip for board breaking last night.  This definitely means he'll be testing for his black belt on February 12th.  Way to go Jonathon!  Three boards broken and one step closer to black belt!
P.S. Kim H that left the really nice comment yesterday...you'll have to let me know where you live in Cincinnati...I'm in Loveland!

Hooray for Jonathon! That's so cool and look at that happy face. :) I'll bet he's counting down until Feb 12th...
I have the same problem with the Mat Stack stamps - didn't get the dies either. Doh! Darn, more shopping... ;)

P.S. Those tiny alphabet stickers from Cosmo Cricket aren't too fussy if you use a pair of tweezers...
