I Can’t Even Sleep!

Do you have problems sleeping just before something big happens?  When does it happen for you?

  • The night before a trip?
  • The night before Christmas?
  • The night before your wedding?
  • How about before a big sale?

We are so excited around here at Central Bark!  I don’t remember if I let it slip that we lost our refrigerator the same weekend that the fire trucks came.  (You can read about it in this post.)

So ever since October 24th, we’ve been living out of an ice chest.

It doesn’t matter much to me because my food comes out of a bag and is kept in a special container just for me.  But I think my humans are missing that big refrigerator that stands right next to my food box.

They went to buy one right after the fridge failure, but changed their minds after doing some extra research.  The super salesman suggested that there might be a sale that starts today.  He couldn’t say exactly if or how much, but gave them the option to wait.

They did and now we might get a dishwasher thrown in for the same price they were going to pay for a refrigerator!

Now THAT affects me because I do enjoy a good clean bowl.

So since we’re so thankful, here’s a card that says it all.

Thank You Card

Isn’t it grrrreat?  You could make it exactly like this with the same kind of ribbon in any one of five IN Colors:

  • Cucumber Crush
  • Delightful Dijon (like this one)
  • Mint Macaron
  • Tip Top Taupe
  • Watermelon Wonder

Of course, you could make it with other colors and ribbons, but isn’t it nice just how it is?

Look how the one main “thank you” pops out.

Thank You Card

This was one of those cards that Ann made when she was going crazy making Delightful Dijon cards.

Thank You Card

If you don’t like to write a lot, you could make it without the top layer so that the Very Vanilla Thank You pops out from the inside.  Then you don’t have to fill a lot of space.

But I think Ann might make a bunch of these to share with some of the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators that she’s going to see at the first ever new kind of convention that they’re doing later this month.

If you’d like to make a card just like this, remember those IN Colors so you can have some frilly ribbon too.  Here’s what we used:

Maybe I should take a nap today since I didn’t sleep last night.

We read & appreciate your comments! They make great bedtime stories for Ann to read to me!

  1. I am excited for your family!! A new refrigerator AND a dishwasher!!! Really love the simplicity of this card!! Thanks for sharing….now I have to go do one in every IN color

    • If we’d have got it last week when the fridge went out, we would’ve only gotten the fridge for about the same price. Worked out we got the dishwasher AND 5 years warranty on both items AND installation AND parts for the same price.
