HA thanks a bunch one-layer partial watercolored Card

Made this Thank You one-layer partial watercolored card with inspiration from A Blog Named Hero DT Betty. You can click here to see her card.

Hero Arts gave me the Mum Stem stamp with the Jan Mth Kit. Thank you HA!

Photographed on my new sewing table/desk. Hubby saw this desk pictured in the Office Max Depot (OMD) ad and indicated that it would be perfect for a sewing table for me. It was reg $169.99 on sale for $119.99 and I had a $10 off coupon for furniture purchase at OMD and also got an addl $11 off for a promotion (not sure what the promotion is but hey every bit helps). Hubby built it and it took over 3 hrs to build. Hardest part were the last parts the drawers. I'm sure glad he built it since it has the hardware for the drawers to pull out instead of the slot grooves in the wood like Michaels storage pieces I have built.
