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.
