Here's a thank you card I made for my cousins Danny and Hazel.  When my sister and I went to Michigan for the Mega Meet, we spent time with them.  We had a lovely visit and I just wanted to let them know I appreciate the hospitality and taking us out for Chinese and then pizza.  It was nice getting to catch up.
I used some of the new techniques I learned at the demonstrations.  We took a class from Heartfelt where I learned to make these flowers.  At Sweet Stamps I learned to use enamel powders on their chipboard images.  Unfortunately, one of the ladies there heard my sister and I having a dispute about something and thought I was her mother.  She said we sounded just like her and her daughter.  Since our age difference is only three years my sister was ecstatic about the mistake.  It's all good though.  I don't take too much offense since she has been mistaken for being older than I am too...hehehe.  Here is a pic of the dragonfly that was demonstrated for us.  She did a much better job than I did.  I'm still learning though.  
Tim Holtz used this same stencil to make a tag by using paste and embossing powders.  While the paste and powder did not come from him the stencil did.  He also gave me the tag he made with it. 
I hope you enjoyed my card and thank you for your visit.  Have a wonderful day!
