Thank you

I always think it's nice to say thankyou especially when you can say it in person, but sometimes you can't be there with the person who gives you something you love and a card is the next best way to say thank you I think. I know a quick phone call or text will do and lets the sender know you got your gift but a card just says it more.

Our family has a few thankyous to send as we couldn't see our benifactors in person to give our thanks so here is one of the cards I've made. I did have some already made and they have been popped in the post but I think you've probably seen most of them before, this was an extra so I thought I'd combine it with some challenges.

I used a mix of promarkers and sakura pens to colour in this fab LOTV image and added sakura sparkle. I don't know why I decided to used greys and creams but I later found a challenge that fit so maybe I already knew this subconciously or something, buit I do think she looks cute in greys.

The papers are dry embossed using another fiskars board and mounted on silver mirri card. The base she is on stamped with a stampman lace stamp and embossed with moonglow pwoder of moonpearls for extra shine. The sentiment is a peeloff. The ribbon was from one of my gifts.

Now I'm not telling who this is going to as it will spoil the suprise but it is sent with much thanks for a beautiful goft that has been much admired and is truely appreciated too. Oh and that is really going to wind some of you up with curiosity but I might tell you later.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Really reasonable ribbons-picture inspiration
Die cut dreams-girlie
Charisma cardz-lace and pearls
Friday sketches-layout
Magical monday-thankyou
