Thank You

Our family have some very kind people around us and I really wanted to show them just how much we appreciate it!

This week, our neighbour gave us a children's outdoor table and chairs set. It came with good timing, as I had been looking for one on ebay and hadn't had any luck!

Another lot of good timing came in the form of 'hand-me-down' clothing just as my oldest daughter was starting to outgrow the size twos! So, rather than spending heaps at the shops, I was able to get her whole (nearly) size three wardrobe for a fraction of the price.

I drew my inspiration for this card from three sources. The first being The Paper Players Challenge #50 - Kind Thanks. They are right, there is nothing quite like receiving and giving a little something in the letter box.

The second source was the sketch at Mojo Monday 194.

The third source was the lovely colour combination at The Colour Throwdown #145.

I enjoyed making this card and I hope the two ladies receiving them (along with some home made biscuits) realise how much their kindness is appreciated.

Stamps: Celebrate Everyday (Stampin' Up!) and Wishes All 'Round (Fiskars)
Ink: Pear Pizazz and Baja Breeze (SU)
Card: Baja Breeze (SU)
Paper: Pear Pizazz and So Saffron DSP (SU)
Embellishments: So Saffron brads, Pear Pizazz ribbon, flower ribbon slide (SU); blue ribbon.
