Back from New York

Being HUGE fans of the TV show Survivor, we were thrilled when one of this season's contestants turned out to be someone who worked for our son.  We got to meet Michael Jefferson a couple months ago.  He had two extra tickets to the finale of Survivor in New York City, so we couldn't pass up the chance to go to the live show.  It turned out that we were on TV in the background when they showed the wife of one of the contestants, Leif.  Very cool.  To thank Michael, I made a never-ending thank you card.

Here is the front of the card.  You'll notice I stamped different ways to say "thank you" throughout the card.  That's Michael in the picture.
 As you open the front of the card, I put more pictures on the inside:
 Below is what Michael will see when he opens the card:
The top right has a picture of the buff after the tribes merge.  The bottom left is the buff of the men's team at the beginning of the season.
Now the card opens again from the center as you see below.
When the card is opened this time, you'll see some different photos.  One photo is of all the Survivors at the finale.  The center photos were taken during the game.  The left is when Mike and his tribe won a reward challenge.  The other one is of Big Mike carrying a large block in a challenge.
But wait, there's more!  The card opens again to the next panel that continues to thank Mike.  Hey, we really appreciated that he gave us the tickets.  Tickets to the season finale are hard to get.
 Here's what the card looks like on this side.
Now, incredibly enough, the card again folds to another side -- the beginning.  It'll just keep folding and showing all four sides.
I found the directions to make the never-ending card on the web.  I just Googled "never-ending card directions" and had my pick of instructions.

Sadly, Mike didn't win.  He did make it to the jury, though. 

I used Twitterpated Designer Series Paper on this card.  I got all the pictures from the Internet.

  2. I LOVE your card Tina! You did a fantastic job making this and I know that it will be a greatly appreciated card for him (and actually a mini album for him to show off or set on a desk or shelf or table somewhere). I think you picked a perfect, and personalized thank you for him. I am so happy that you two got to go, almost makes me feel like I was there - notice I did write "almost"!
