T-H-A-N-K-S Thanks!!!!

In Florida, there is a strong rivalry between the Seminoles and Gators.  I am a true Seminole, but our best friends (like parents) are Gators, hence my dilemna:)  This card was very hard for me to make!!! They are so awesome to my husband and I, so I bit the bullet and created this card.  I think it came out very nice, inspite of the colors:)  Thanks for stopping by!!!  The card is 4x9.

I recently made a pocket card, then after looking around I realized there was another type with a criss-cross opening.  I found a tutorial on YouTube!  So, I decided to try them as notecards for a friend.  I tried to make some about a week ago, and discovered that I needed to use two-sided paper to make it work.  So, I went to my local scrapbooking store, and found the cutest BoBunny paper.  Here is what I came up with, hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by:)
