A Thank You card


My Aunt is going home today so I thought I would make a thank you card for her as having her here has been such a help, and she has been brilliant company for me.

I have been so shocked and upset hearing the story of the poor Mother & Daughter who died alone in Hereford, I just keep thinking about how that poor girl must have suffered, starving to death alone in this day and age should never happen, I hope it gives us all a jolt and we  realise the importance of being a good neighbour, not a nosey neighbour there is a difference, perhaps if someone had noticed that they hadn’t seen the mother for a few days this terrible tragedy would never of happened.

003Well with that off my chest I will get on with telling you about this Thank You card.  I have used the cute Lili of the Valley Bear with Bouquet for this image and have used copics and Prismas to colour the image:

Bear – E13, E53, E51, E50, Flowers – R27, R05, R01, R00, Wrapping – B15, B11, B10

  I have been asked by a number of you to do a tutorial on how I use both colouring mediums, I will try to get one done over the weekend.

The lovely papers are from My Minds Eye Out and About Pad, and I have used a Martha Stewart Border Punch.  The Cherry Blossom and 10mm Roses, flat backed pearls and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

003cI have got to finish painting the bathroom today and then I am so looking forward to getting back into crafting woohoo!!!

Hugs and thanks for your lovely comments

My thoughts exactly with ref to the mum & daughter story. You really would think someone would have noticed a lack of movement, curtains, lights etc. So sad x

What a groegous thank you card, bet your aunt loved it! I completely agree with you about the very sad story about the mother and daughter, I cannot believe that this happened, I hope my neighbours think I am a nice neighbour x

Val said...

Wow - so pretty and just lovely details, as always.

I absolutely agree about that story in Hereford - I just cannot believe it can happen - unfortunately I also think it is society - people can life next door to somebody and never speak to them. How awful is that ..

Take care
