A Thank You Card for Cindy

Woo-hoo, tomorrow is Friday....hooray!  Well, the big news for Hilo is that Zippy's opened today and I heard they were slammin' busy with a long line of people waiting to get in.  Can't wait to get some pastries from Napoleon's Bakery (in Zippy's).  They make the best me anyway.

Here's a "thank you" card I made for Cindy.  She was sooooo sweet to send me a DP pack for commenting frequently on her blog.  She put a big smile on my face and made my day!!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH CINDY!!!   REALLY APPRECIATE IT!  Click here to visit her inspiring blog.

For this card, I used a few of the DPs from the pack she gave me.

Hi Karen! Have you gotten any malasadas from Zippy's yet? Do you usually like yours filled or plain? I can't wait to enjoy some too.

What a lovely card for Cindy. Just like how her DP put a smile on your face I am sure that your card will do the same for her.

Have a relaxing weekend!
