Thank You/Friend Card Using CTMH Calypso Paper, Thin Cuts, Stamp Set

Hello Friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  It is still hot here in Southern CA; but some days it is in the upper 80's, 90's and others in the 100's.  It feels hot even in the house; which is odd.  We just had our air conditioner serviced; so it must be the heat.  

I have been wanting to create these Thank You/Friend Cards for a while now.  I am a little slow sometimes.  LOL!  Just too much going on with family, my mother passing away in April and many trips to MO; so haven't had enough time to create them.  Everything on this card is retiring the end of August except the CTMH Pixie cardstock, the CTMH card base and the black ink. The Cotton Candy ink will be retiring the end of July or while supplies last.  

I fell in love with this paper, complements, Flamingo stamp, Washi tape, Sequins and thin cuts as soon as I saw them in our CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea book.  I have bought several packages of all of them; so I wouldn't run out.  It will save you money to buy the entire paper set in the Workshops Your Way Calypso Scrapbooking Kit G1109.  The stamp set and thin cuts are sold separately.  I really love the stamp set; especially the sentiments. The thin cuts are fabulous and cut so easily!  I really hate to see them retire. They are so much fun to create with.
