Unity Stamps Thankful and Grateful Hip Hop

If you haven't noticed yet that today's Hip Hop theme is Thankful and/or Grateful. I decided that I needed to make my 'project' a set of 12 very simple Thank You cards for Angela, a woman that I have never met. I do know her sister, Stephanie Hunt. Stephanie owns Bella Blvd and she has always been one of those very kind and generous women that you love the moment you meet her. Stephanie's sister, Angela lost her husband in a tragic card accident just about 2 weeks ago. He was so incredibly young and leaves behind his wife and 3 beautiful children. I was forward this information along with a request for handmade thank you cards so that Angela may use them for all those that are reaching out to her in this time of need. That's the LEAST I could do. It just breaks my heart. I couldn't even imagine what she is going through.

Thanks So Much cards
Supplies: 
Cardstock: Jillibean Soup and Core'dination
Pattern Paper: Bella Blvd
Stamps: Ippity by Unity Stamp Company
Ink: Stampin' Up! and Colorbox
Twine: Jillibean Soup

Before you move along, I wanted to share the winner from my World Card Making Day challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers for Unity....
