It's Monday again. Wasn't it just Monday yesterday? It is raining yet again in New England. I am seriously thinking about building an ark! We had a gorgeous day on Saturday and that was it!! Back to doom and gloom.

Here is a thank you card I did for Dawn for the awesome birthday gift she gave me. Let's just say I scored big with Tim Holtz prizes!! Who doesn't love them some Tim Holtz? That dude is amazing!!

A big good luck goes out to Kel, she is starting her new job today!! Good luck Kel. You will rock the place.

I made this card with a lot of Tim Holtz' stuff. The clocks are Tim Holtz paper that I trimmed up. The pink paper is also Tim Holtz paper.

I used the beautiful crinkly ribbon and the pin is from StampingUp! I used perfect pearls around the edges of the white paper. The word Thank you is cut from the new cartridge that is on the E2 - Cricut American Alphabet.

Perfect Pearls are the three little dots above the ribbon. As you can see one of the dots is pushed in. I HAD to test it, of course I did!! Not dry. Dawn totally understands, as we always have to feel things!! Too funny!!

Have a wonderful day!! Happy Monday!!
