For Ernie

I am behind in my cards for the Teapot Tuesday challenge at SplitcoastStampers.  This group has a weekly challenge to send cards to someone with a special need.  A couple of weeks ago cards were sent to Ernie, who recently moved to a nursing home, and is in need of some cheer - and a reminder that there really is much to be thankful for.  I had printed several copies of this verse from Word Art, so it was handy to use again.  I had cut some subtle pattern paper to fit the printer - a good way to use some of that paper that seems to last forever - I often buy"stacks" that I really do not need!  All of these come from a DCWV fall stack.  I added some honeycomb pattern Washi tape, and the negative leftover from a sheet of sticker strips - as well as a small button.

(I tried to comment using my phone earlier and it was giving me trouble and I don't think it went through, but if this is a repeat comment, I apologize!)
