Thanks For All You Do!

Hello my friends!! I am back from vacation! I went to Pennsylvania to visit my family and friends and I had such a great time. My niece got so big! AAHH... Just look at how happy these two were to see each other again (My niece on left, my daughter on right).
As much as I enjoyed my getaway for those three weeks, it sure feels good to be back home =)
Okay so I have a card to share with you today. I originally made this to enter into the Papertrey Ink's April Blog Hop but I missed the deadline. Has that ever happened to you? LOL
The challenge was to "tilt" something on your project so for my card, I tilted my washi tape. The card base is some kraft cardstock from the paper loft and measures at 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I cut a piece of striped paper from Prima into a triangle and added that to the corner of my card. I used some washi tapes from American Crafts to run along the side of the triangle side and down through the middle of the card. I stamped the sentiment "Thanks for all you do" from PTI's Think Big Favorites #6 mini stamp set in Hawaiian Shores ink. To finish off the card I added some pretty white pearl bling from Recollections and added a sweet blue flower from Prima.

Well that is my card for you today... please mark your calendars for Saturday, May 4th to come help celebrate my first blogaversary birthday blog hop!!! There will be some amazing projects and prizes!
Also don't forget that I do have a 200 follower giveaway that you can enter Here. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!!
