Project 62 - My Pink Stamper Design Team 2011 Challenge & Submission

 I'm trying out for a spot on the "My Pink Stamper Design Team for 2011"!  I love visiting Robyn's Blog she is such an inspiration.  I made this thank you card for Robyn's challenge, then i'll be giving the card, along with some Stephens's Hot Chocolate, to my neighbor Jamie!  Hi Jamie!  She was so kind to put my garbage cans out by the curb, then bring them back in for us while we were on vacation!  Thanks again Jamie! 
For Robyn's Pink Stamper Challenge you need to:

*Have a blog

*You cannot already be serving on a DT that has product that is a conflict of interest (most DTs are just fine as long as they do not sell product that is similar to My Pink Stamper Original Cricut Stamps idea)

*Your project must be made just for this challenge
*Post a pic on your blog with a full recipe along with what the challenge is about
*This needs to be a new project that you make just for this challenge
*Only one entry per person, please
*You must have either a Cricut or Imagine to serve on the team
*No experience necessary but you must have a love for the craft! 
Challenge:  Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite cartridge using my favorite colors......
(other optional color of your choice)

Here is what i'll be submitting.
