Many Thanks Gary!!


Hope you all had a nice and safe Halloween.  In my area we had no trick-or-treaters, so now we have tons of candy.  Luckily we got the good kind, bad thing is now we have to eat it.  Well if anything I can make more treat bags and use up that candy.  hahaha!  Welcome to November!!  It's officially Christmas season!!  Well at least that's what one of those funny pictures on IG stated.  Um, no we still have one more special holiday to celebrate before we should think about Christmas and that's Thanksgiving.  So glad I'm sharing this card today. 

Let's get to it.  I made this Thank you card for one of my co-worker's who left the company for a new adventure.  Here's the front the of card featuring a slightly altered Bobo bear from Sister Stamps.

I wanted to use this image but needed it to be a panda.  I used some black ink to color the eyes, ears and body to create the panda.  Then using a white gel pen added some highlights.  Love how it turned out.  The background paper is from a really old DCWV paper pad and the thanks was cut from a Paper Smooches die.  Here's the inside of the card which I turned into a easel/calendar card.

Thought it would be nice to send him off with something he could put on his desk at his new office, or leave at home.  I couldn't leave it at that, I added another card to the bottom so I could write a message inside.  Here is what I came up with...

Keeping it totally CAS was my goal here.  I used a Mama Elephant cloud border die on the same paper and cut one more thanks sentiment.  I hand-wrote "many" above the thanks sentiment and it was done. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday, I've got some cards I need to finish so I'll be busy for the rest of the day.  I'm not complaining.  :D

This is a wonderful 'guy' card. The Panda did turn out well and looks cute peekin out. The extras you included make it a keeper.

That's a darn cute thank-you card Leanne. You are so clever to make a panda out of a pooch. Easy on the candy or you'll be bouncing off the walls. LOL. Have a great week.
