Thank You Card with Gerbera Flowers

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How was your weekend? We spent most of our travelling back and forth to see my parents. My mum was taken into hospital on Thursday evening and my dad is at  home being taken care of by the carers. We went up on Saturday and Sunday. This week between both me and my husband are very busy so we won't be able to visit again until next weekend. We are waiting for tests to find out what has been wrong with my mum.

When you have a birthday and you get nice presents you need thank you cards. All mine are made now and given out to people. I had lots of bits left over from making another card. So I decided to make them into a thank you card.

All the card I used for the layers was left over from another project. 

When I was travelling to Winchester once a week I treated myself to the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlets Dies  Mixed Media set two. I used one of the dies in the set to cut this flourish into the card. The thanks die is from Crafter's Companion. 

The flowers were cut with the Gerbera Flower die from the John Next Door Range. I used the Leafy flourish die to add the foliage. The butterflies were cut with the Small Butterfly die set. 

The friends who received this card liked it a lot. 

With all the things going on at the moment, I am not sure how much crafting I will be able to fit in. I will just have to see. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
