Thank You

Good morning to you I hope you are all well and, if not, wishing you a speedy recovery.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexis Creations and the theme for this fortnight is Thanks/Thanksgiving.  As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK I have gone with a Thank you card:

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the Thanks from Centura Pearl card.  The paper is DCWV from the Garden Party stack which is many years old.  The butterfly is cut using MB Pippi and Isabella Butterfly and the gem flourish is from my stash. Here is another view:

Our sponsor this fortnight is My Heart Pieces.  Please go over to Lexis and see what the rest of the DT have done for some more inspiration and you have almost two weeks to enter.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Creative Creations - Sparkle and Shine
Creative Cutting - Thanksgiving
Get Inky - Thanks or Thanksgiving
Melonheadz - Give Thanks

It was lovely to see my two beautiful grandsons at the weekend can't wait to see them again!  Thank you so much for looking I really appreciate your visits and any comments you leave its always lovely to receive them.  See you tomorrow, take care xx
