All in the Family thank you card

Here's a thank you card that I made for some friends that took care of our dog while we were away on vacation. We have a dog that happens to be very needy and not friendly with other dogs. We found out the hard way that we shouldn't leave her in a kennel, as we did that once just for the weekend, and the poor thing was just shaking so much when we got her back. She just can't handle all the barking. Ever since that day we always try to find someone to stay at our house (and they must spend the night here, or she'll poop everywhere!). This time we couldn't find anyone, and luckily some friends agreed to take her to their house (and they have a dog, which was challenging at first, but after fighting once they figured out some sort of understanding).
I love the All in the Family set, but it can be challenging when trying to stamp three people in a card. The stamp-a-ma-jig is a must with this set! The flowers used are from the retired pretties kit, and I just pressed them directly onto the ink pads. The same thing can be done with the paper daisies found in the current catalog. They are on my wish list. :)
