Take Out Thursday: No one Else Like You

Hello, and welcome to my weekly post called

Take Out Thursday 

When I serve up something simple and easy.

Take out a stamp set for a spin, spice it up.

When I began this feature I wrote that one of my reasons for Take Out Thursday is to use a set or product without having to re-invent the wheel. "Take Out food is not gourmet. Not perfection.Designed to get you out of the kitchen quickly."

Today's card is a perfect example. I found a sentiment that is so unique and I bought the No One Else Like You set from W Plus 9  because I wanted to use those words. The set and dies are perfect for quickly putting together a thank you card with a BOLD look. 

The letters are already spaced for you in the die to make lining them up easy. I die cut the letters from the white panel, and then inlaid the dark letters that had been previously die cut. They look somewhat wonky because of my camera angle, but trust me, they are straight!

I stretched a frame die by just using part of it on the sides. I wanted to use a bold striped navy paper but had none, so in a sense, I made my own.

Remember when I said there would be some excitement for me later in this week? I want to tell you about a dear friend who loves stamping. Susan and I met at our first SU convention in 2008. For several years afterwards convention was our time to meet and we became the best of friends even though we lived several states away from each other. 

My friend Susan and her husband have made a trip to visit us for a couple of days arriving today. I'm so excited! 

The stamping community is so amazing. That includes all of you, dear friends. There is no one else quite like you. A big hug and thanks to you from me. Have a great weekend.
