"Another Thank You card"

Good morning Blog friends, followers and any one who pressed a button that landed them here.  Glad you have popped by, I hope you like what you see and call again soon.
Nothing much happening here at the Ranch, very quite since the boys have gone back to School.  Actually rather boring to be honest.  Washing, Ironing, cleaning & dusting!!!! how boring is that when you can be having fun with two very active boys.
I have another Thank You card for you today.  I was very impressed with Sue Wilson`s "floating sentiment Tutorial" I have made quite a few cards using the Technique.  I sent the card I am showing to a friend who sent me some Die Cut Stepper Cards.  I don`t do many stepper cards, to me they are such a"faff" to cut out.  These are wonderful ... cut out using a Die,  I really must have trawl round to find a reasonably priced Die.
Here is my card:-

White base card PMD 
Backing Paper Bebunnie from a Crafters Companion Magazine CD
Thank You Die from Diesire I really like their word Dies
Words "floating" on some acetate over the backing paper
Rose, using SB Blossom 5 Die
Leaves, SW Rose Die set

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you do
Till next time
