Here's the back story - About a month ago, a strong storm knocked over a rather large tree in our back yard. Temperatures that week were averaging 90-100 degrees... it was HOT! I posted pictures on Facebook of our fallen tree, and within an hour, a friend from church commented and offered to bring his chainsaw over and help us remove it. We were so grateful for him (and his son, who also came along to help in the incredible heat), so I want to send him a thank you card. I absolutely COULD NOT pass up the opportunity to use my wood grain embossing folder (The Paper Studio). I knew that bugger would come in handy some day :) While I'll be sending him this card tomorrow, I hope I also have the opportunity to pay it forward. Being on the receiving end of such a random act of kindness is a feeling like no other, and I hope to pass it along to someone soon!
Oh, and I just got the 'perfectly penned' sentiment stamp set from Stampin' Up, and I love it (Thank you, Kathy) in case you were wondering where the stamp came from. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
