Thank You Card, and Many More Thank You's

Today I thought I'd share a simple thank you card. I was inspired by a card I saw in "PaperCrafts" magazine this month and just kind of used that as a starting point that led to this. Simple, but I think bold and masculine. I wanted to make several thank you cards for Tannon before he leaves on his mission on Wednesday because there are so many people who have supported him in his quest to serve a mission, financially and otherwise. T wanted to write thank you notes to them before he leaves. This is one of the cards I came up with.

Close To My Heart products used: Magnifique Level 2 Paper Pack (X7127B), Connections Stamp Set (D1330), Say it in Style Stamp Set (D1283), Chocolate Stamp Pad (Z2114), Pacifica Stamp Pad (Z2192), Basic Brads Assortment (Z1218), Corner Rounder (Z578), 3D Foam Tape (Z1151)

Non-CTMH products used: Stampin' Up scallop circle punch

I also am filled with gratitude this week; gratitude to those who have impacted Tannon's life in positive ways, gratitude that he has chosen to dedicate the next two years to service for his Father in Heaven, gratitude for all the people who helped me get ready to feed an army on Sunday, gratitude for my wonderful family, gratitude for a husband who loves and supports me, gratitude for my business and Dan's job, gratitude for so many things.

So, in addition to the card that I pictured at the top of this message, I thought I'd share a few photos of the past week in the Pedersen home. Enjoy!

Tannon and Dawson after Dawson's football game this week...the last one Tannon will see him play for 2 more years!
Thanks to my mom, dad and sister for all their help this week. Love you guys! Mom and Dad, I couldn't have done it without you!
Easton got to come home for the weekend. Thanks to his beautfiul fiance, Daysha.
She sang a beautiful rendition of "I Stand All Amazed".
Some of the crowd that came by for lunch after Tannon's farewell talk. We figure we fed around 200.
Whew! Thanks to EVERYONE who helped with food and everything else!
My SIL, Cindy (center) and her two girls, Paige and Katie. Many thanks to these ladies for their help with food and serving and cleaning up. LOVE them so much!

Love the card. I really like all the white space and it works great for men or women. So sad I couldn't be there to help you but glad you had some great family and friends there to help out. I will miss Tan but am so proud of him!

Very nice card. Really like the simplicity of it - and the symmetry of it with the scallops and the design of the stamped image and b&t paper.
