Me To You - Thank You

Hi there,

Well it's been a busy old day.  My daughter insisted we went to the Next sale this morning, nothing unusual there except she wanted to go as soon as it opened at 5am!!!  We didn't make it for then but weren't far behind at 5.40am.  Now considering I was out for a few hours last night for my pals 40th getting up that early was no mean feat!  Iona is getting very keen on fashion and had some Next vouchers to spend and luckily she got a few things she wanted and made the early start worthwhile!  After that we came back home and went to bed for a couple of hours and got up at a more reasonable time for a Saturday morning.  In the afternoon we took Auntie Winnie to a Strawberry Tea at the nearby Sheltered Housing and sampled some lovely homebakes and I even found some backing papers to buy on the bric a brac stall!  This evening we went to the Moscow State Circus which was really enjoyable, I'm just glad we left it until tonight as the weather is now much cooler.  The big top must have been stifling in the heat.  Iona really enjoyed herself and this has gone down as one of her 'best days ever'.  Needless to say she was very tired tonight and actually asked to go to bed which is a bit of a novelty!

Anyway, I've blethered enough so onto my card.  This is a Thank You card I've made for the ladies on the sheltered housing social club committee who have been so kind to Auntie Winnie since she took the stroke at New Year.  They have been fantastic with visits, cards, phone calls, etc and at their AGM this year they made her a honorary member.

Almost everything I've used has come from Docrafts.  The only extras are the card blank and twine.  The decoupage, papers, brad and sentiment are all from the Me To You (Tatty Teddy) range and I've added pink capsule collection cardstock for the matting and layering and the die-cut doiley which was made using an x-cut die.  Some white organza Anita's ribbon and capsule collection gems complete the card.

I'm yawning away while posting this so sleep is next on the agenda, goodnight all xx

I wish to enter my card into the following challenges:

  4. wonderful card Shona and your day sounded crazy - glad you enjoyed it. Luckily Lucy has not really discovered fashion too much as yet although she does like Next as she always gets vouchers for there from an aunt for birthdays/christmas. She doesn't know about the sale yet though - mums far too busy (sleeping) to go shopping at 5.40am lol!!! You're very brave Shona!!!!
