"Thank You card"

Hello Blog friends, I certainly hope you are getting the beautiful weather we are.
The sun has been shining since early morning, the sky is blue, little wind although it is rather cool.  I can cope with the cool as long as the sun is shining.  
Thank you for popping by today, love to have you visit.  I have been trying to get round you all to see what you have been up to.   I got a lovely e-mail from Flora (Crafty Lark) giving me a link to Carol Yates Blog.  Carol leaves some lovely comments and till now I have not been able to get to her Blog as it is one of these Google links and I have not got my head rounds how to sort that out.   I can accept if people do not have a Blog, I thank you for your visits and comments.   I really do like to return the favour if I get a comment on my Blog and the person has a Blog.
Thomas is here again, I feel he is making up for what happened.  I have never mentioned anything about him not coming with me.  I have been talking about what Oriel and I did.  Things that were going on at the farm but not saying at any point he should have been there or that missed out on anything.  There will be other opportunities in the future.

Here is the card we have been making:-
Base card 6 x 6 white card
Spot and checked papers from CDs
We both did some of the stitching.  Thomas first go using the sewing machine. 
The machine is one of these little ones, not that great but he did manage to use it fine
Thomas attached the paper and as far as I am concerned they are upside down.  He says that`s the way he wanted them
As you can see there are a fair few flowers to say the least.  The card does just about manage to stand on its own!!!
As a joint effort I feel we have "Done Good"
Stamped greeting mounted on lilac card and cut into a Fish Tail

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate it
Till next time

  4. We have had really heavy rain and winds all night and morning but it stopped at lunch time and even feels fairly warm now. .Poor Thomas, as you say we tend to forget how young they are. Still, plenty of other opportunities will arise. And he is helping you with the card - a very important role! Enjoy the rest of your day. Christine xx
