So Thankful.............



So, the Design Divas had a challenge......in a nutshell: Do something you have never done before and create something to demonstrate/illustrate how it made you feel. Also, we had to use something from our stash that we hadn't used yet. Something I had never done before was to RAK someone (merely because I never can seem to get to the post office, like it's the dentist office or something---ha!). Anyway, on the All Things Tim Yahoo group they started (or perhaps re-started) an organized RAKing system for those in our group that may need uplifting for whatever reason. So, I bit the bullet (oh, the commitment ;)) and submitted my name the first time a request went out. I really enjoyed it so did it again the next week when another request went out. Well, long story not so short---I created this tag to illustrate the emotions involved. For my never used stash I used the metal keyhole 'brad' and the copper ribbon.


I am also submitting this to these challenges:

**misc. key and keyhole

**various ribbons/fibers

**Face stamp by Hampton Art

**Musical stamp by All Night Media

**Clock stamp by Rubber Stampede

Perfect D! I am so glad I got to see this beauty IRL. I like your post office-dentist reference, though dentists may call you an anti-dentite :) I'd rather watch golf on tv than go to the dentist, though I actually really like my current dentist and the one previous.

Deanna, this is SO cool! I love your dramatic wrinkle-free distressed background, and the sweet sentiment and great stamping. What a lovely approach to the challenge to do something new! I know whoever receives this beautiful RAK will be thrilled. You rocked the CCC, as always, and created yet another full-on feast for the eyes!
