Thank You:)

Welcome to Funky Cards

Today I want to share with you a thank you card that I designed for a special family.  Kelly, Lily, and Hannah are a wonderful family that live in San Diego where my brother, Aaron, goes to college.  My mom and dad stayed with them on their last trip to see Aaron.    

This card will have special meaning to Hannah, who is 10 years old.  Poor Hannah, my mom kept calling her Lily, her mom's name.  When looking for donuts one morning after being called Lily for the 20th time, Hannah sweetly said, "that's ok, we can go to Lily's donuts."  Turns out it was Linda's donuts, so after my mom told me the story ...

My mom and dad used this as a thank you card to show how much they appreciated this family's hospitality.  

Do you recognize the house?  I love changing things up!  This is the house from Kate's ABC's.  I used the blackout feature to delete the windows.  I changed the angel of the roof and moved the door from the center to the left side.  I wanted it to look less like a house and more like a donut shop.  I don't have the Cricut cartridge that has the sweet treat shop.  So, this is how I make due!

The stamp is from Emma's, My Creative time, Just a Little Note to Say stamp set.

I am entering this card in the Whimsical Wednesday anything goes challenge.

Have a wonderful day everyone.
