A BIG Thank You

My son visited recently and showered us with special gifts.  We got lots of goodies, some practical, some fun, some decorative.  One gift was over the top.  My husband and I celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary.  The gift from our son was a 3D laser cube with a photo of my husband and I and our wedding date engraved on it.  It sits on a lighted base and rotates 360 degrees.  Here's a photo.

He is a special son.  My only son.  I made him a card to show our appreciation and wanted to emphasize in a large way our thankfullness.  

I used red cardstock for the main base and cut a square of map paper from Stampin' Up's! Going Places designer paper pack.  (You mean the world to me Chris.)  The large thank you is from SU's Another Thank You stamp set.  I stamped it a couple of times with black ink so that it would be nice and dark.  Then I stamped it with Versamark, the sticky ink, and embossed it with clear powder.  I added a red heart as the finishing touch.  

So, even though it's late, THANK YOU Chris!
