A *Very* Supportive Thank You

It's finally Friday! Hooray! I wanted to share a quick card I made today for a dear friend (...to say thank you for always being so awesome). Because she is! :) I based the design on this week's sketch at Card Patterns. I originally wanted to make the card taller, like the sketch implies, but since I am mailing it, I knew I didn't have an envelope to fit. I'm not sure I am ready to start making my own "custom" envelopes yet. Haha! 
This set, called Fashion Statements, is retired. I purchased it a few years back and let me tell you, this little bra stamp has been inked up a LOT. It's so stinkin' cute and is a perfect way to show your appreciation and get a little giggle. For that reason, I am also submitting this card to the Happy Monday Challenge, where the theme this week is to "Share a Smile".
Here is the decorated inside, left blank to add my personal note: 
Sticking with the "sharing a smile" theme, I thought I would also share a recent photo of Ozzy during his bath last weekend. (My sweet hubby is finally in a photo, too!) I snapped it at just the right moment and he looks like he is sticking his tongue out at me. I love this photo! :) 
That's all for today. Thank for stopping in for a visit. Before you go, please leave me a comment to say hello and let me know what you think about today's post. I always enjoy hearing from you. Well, I'm off to get ready for a fabby "Girls Night Out" with some friends tonight. These gals are the absolute best and I can't wait to share some good laughs, good food and yummy margaritas with them tonight. Talk to you soon! :)
