Thanks Again

This is the other 'thanks' card which I mentioned recently and this one is for the Pixie Snippets challenge. It seems appropriate to mention that the 'thanks' word die was part of a set which I was lucky enough to win from there some time ago.  Always worth taking part because you never know when your name will pop up as a winner and it is a great opportunity to use up snippets.  This particular word has been lying around on my desk ever since the set arrived when I did my usual thing and did a test cut to see how the dies looked.   Luckily I had some other bits and pieces amongst my stash which could be brought together to make a complete card.  The embossed panel was a piece left over from another card, as was the tail end of a banner.  Fortunately I still had some scraps of the purple card from which to die cut three butterflies.  Backed everything with a larger snippet of designer paper and added a few stray gems with, of course, the original 'thanks' which sparked this card off in the first place.

  5. Hi Val

    I am very late to the party visiting this little beauty.

    A great layout and I love your playground prize very much!

    Many thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. Mum has seemed a little brighter this week so I am hoping we are starting to get back on track with her. She just seems to be so weak and lacking in stamina. Perhaps I expect too much of an 89 year old!

    Hope all is well at your end.

    Love Jules xx
