Thank You!



I made this card for my mom/dad...hopefully she isn't reading this as I called her and told her not to look at my blog! Actually I had to tell her it was a x-mas card that she asked me to make for one of her friends and I didn't want her to see it until I gave it to her....a wee bit of a white lie but I didn't want mom to know I was surprising them with a Thank You card! They really do alot for me and my husband. I won't go into all the detail or this post would take you forever to read but they are great parents and I don't know what I would do without them! And even though they drive me nuts sometimes (as I'm SURE I do to them also!!) they truly are two of the best parents anyone could ever ask for...honestly!! I am so very lucky to be able to call them mom and dad!

I used my Copics which are the best markers ever to color my image. I am so proud of how this came out! I hope you all like it too and I really hope mom/dad like it!
Let me know what you think!
