Thank You cards

Morning everybody,

I made a couple of thank you cards to the ER doctors as well as the children's ward who looked after my daughter Aditi over the weekend when she had the accident. I thought I will share them with you all.
Here is the first one.

Just a note card

I went overboard with flowers on this one I think :) But I like it. The stamp set I have used is from Wplus9 called Folk Art Floral and coordiating dies. The umbrella is from MFT which I die cut using the glitter paper. The sequins are from Studio Calico. The sentiment is from Thank You stamp set from PTI. Here is the close up of the flowers.

And the second card is a one layer card full of colours.

Thank You card

I have used Abstract Art Stamp Set from MFT on my card. Love the brush strokes on this set. Perfect way to add texture look and colour to the card without bulking it up. The sentiment is from PTI Thank You set. Sequins from Studio Calico. Here is the inside of the card.

Yesterday we gave them a box of chocolate and my cards. They were happy receiving it but did not open my card.  Hope they like it.

Today's job is cleaning my craft room and getting some desk ready to craft. The room was cold during winter and I was crafting on my dining table. Now the weather has warmed up and room is cooler. I will get back to my craft room and the dining table will be clean to use for what it is meant for. Lol!

See you soon.

just gorgeous Gayatri and I bet the staff are chuffed. I suspect they don't get too many handmade thank you cards!

Hope your daughter is recovering well.
I am sure the staff appreciated the hand made cards, I am betting they don't get many thank yous let alone with a hand made card.

Wow! All those flowers are incredible. And so thoughtful of you to give them a card/gift - I'm sure it was appreciated!

Wow, Gayatri! These are both beautiful! That first explosion of flowers is AMAZING!! I bet when they opened the cards they wished they'd opened them while you were there! I hope Aditi recovers quickly.

Your cards are lovely Gayatri! I'm sure they are most appreciated. What brand inks did you use on the just a note card? They are so gorgeous and bright.
Cheers from a fellow Aussie.

Hi! Thanks for your lovely comment. I have used Hero Arts Shadow Inks and MFT Dye Inks on my flowers. They are amazing inks as you can see:)
