Thank You For Your Thoughtfulness

 Good morning friends!
We had an amazing day yesterday.
The only thing missing was our oldest son Tristan, his girlfriend Katie
and my dear mom.
Our son Robin, his girlfriend Summer and grandson Emery
surprised us with breakfast. It was French Toast and simply fabulous.
After we ate, we all decided to have a Beach Day.
 We were very lucky that Kaitlyn and her boyfriend Jon came too.
It was a blue skies day with a wonderful breeze.

The stamp sets that I want to highlight for you
are from The Project Bin.

Our town had a bad storm on July 16th 
and it caused a lot of damage to our neighbors houses
and to the rest of the town.
We were very lucky that our damage was minimal compared to 
everyone else.
The card that I decided to make is for our neighbor John and his son Liam.
They were gracious enough to help us load
up our branches and took it to the brush pile.
It was amazing and so very, very appreciated.

The rectangle die cut brown ink on the edges was done by a dauber
to make it look distressed.
I stamped the image and sentiments
and then used an die to cut out the oval
as to make it look like a picture frame.
Twine wrapped around it, to add to this masculine card.
The pattern paper is just some that I dug out of 
my scrap bins.

Be sure to check out The Project Bin Blog
for brand new creations from our Design Team.

Wishing you a really wonderful day!
