Thankful for Hip Hop!

Today's Hip Hop theme is all about being Thankful/ Grateful...such fitting theme don't ya think!!
I know I'm feeling especially grateful because on Tuesday I get to go to Idaho and spend some time with my brothers!  My younger brother is currently undergoing some pretty harsh treatment for Stage IV Melanoma and I think a visit from his big/only sister is just what the dr. ordered - don't you agree :) 

For my project today I used the hip hop sketch and created a set of Thank You Cards. 
It seems like I always need a Thank You card so it feels so good to have a few extras made up.
I used my favorite background stamp "Giving it All Meaning" stamped in Old Paper, and the Thank You stamp Samantha Walker's set "Fall Family Memories"
Here's the sketch

and here's a look at my cards. 


And here is the winner of my WCMD Challenge over on SCS:

So smart to create a set of thank you's - I'm sure they'll come in handy. My favorite has the zig zaggy pattern of buttons across the bottom.

Glad you're able to go give your brother some love. Safe travels.
