"Thank You"

Good morning Blog friends, welcome to my little corner of the world of Blogging.  I love that you come visit and leave such lovely comments.  That`s what makes this Blogging lark all worth while.   Thank you to all who do not have an active Blog and still regularly visit and comment.  I am sorry I cant get back to return the favour.  Thank you to everyone who visits, I am delighted that you do.
Today as I type this it is a "Stunningly Beautiful Day" Spring is coming I know it is I am sure it is.
Thomas and Audrey came to pick Robert up last night.  Thomas was glowing after his 3 days Skiing.  His cheeks were rosy, his smile covered his face, he looked so happy.  They lost 2 days Skiing last week because the bus company heard the Forecast for snow and cancelled the bus.  The snow did not actually come, the children are to get the days made up soon.
Today's card is one I made and sent to a very kind person who helped me source something.  However you are all so kind I extend the Thank You to you as well.

Base card approx 5x 7
Blue card from American Crafts Card Pack picked up at TKMAX for a bargain price
Pink from the same pack
White card cut using Sue Wilson`s Gemini Die ... Carina I just used the outside cutting edge
That StampinUp Stamp that I just can not put away
Little Sentiment Stamp from

OK some info:-
A few of you have asked where I got my Card Stand  ..  it is actually a Candle Holder ...
If you are in Garden Centre or similar place that has lots of Fancy Candles they will be sure to have a selection of Candle Holders.  My one is metal, John snipped and bent a couple of bits so that it holds the card for photographing.
A few of you have placed an order for the Stippled Blossom Stamp through:-  and had wonderful service.  Michelle is lovely, nothing is a problem and she thanks you for the custom.   If any of you like StampinUp products and have difficulty getting them she is more than willing to help you out.

Right folks that`s me for today
Thank you  for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time

  4. Hi Patricia, Another beautiful card with this gorgeous stamp set, I can't wait for mine to come, I hadn't realised that I could order from Michelle, I have ordered from a SU demonstrator who is local to me.
    The weather here is not too bad today, although I have some icy snow on my garden that simply will not melt and go. My bulbs outside are showing their shoots, I always love to see that, it means that we are getting nearer to better weather and longer days and sunshine, yeahhhhhh !!!!
    Enjoy your day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  5. Such a beautiful way to say thank you. The roses are stunning and I love the colours.

    Take care, sending hugs to you too.

  20. Hi Patricia
    I will never tire of seeing this beautiful stamp. It reminds me of the First Edition Rose Garden papers. I'm trying to sit on my hands with the NEC coming up but its very hard to resist.
    TK Maxx does craft stuff? I never usually get past the handbags (a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine lol!).
    Enjoy your sunny days.

    I'm very late! What a beautiful card. I love the stamp and excellent tip about the leaves! I like too how you have used just the edge of the Gemini die. It gives the card such a pretty, delicate edge.
