Thank You

First of all a big thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last post, it's so nice to know that I have been missed.
You cannot believe how much I missed my cards. We went away for a lovely break to the lakes. We stayed at Hawkshead, such a gorgeous place. We've already booked up to go back to the same cottage next year. When we returned I went into the attic, only to discover my son had visited before we went away!!! Briefly, he'd rubbed my stazon on my chair and left the lid off, he'd also scrubbed it on my table along with emptying my white pen all over. My collal glue had been poured over some new stamps (I do know they should have been away), but at least that pulled off. I had a load of stamps that I had listed on eBay which he'd cut chunks out of. He'd also sprayed red spray paint on tv and my husbands pc screen, ceiling and light. This took quite a while to clear up!
I've also had to post a load of eBay things, I had over 100 items listed. I then caught a dreaded summer cold, they don't half knock the stuffing out of me!! I was on nights when the new lili of the valley stamps were released, so I had to buy them all, they came promptly as ever on the Tuesday, I was so poorly I never opened them till the Friday and the first one was inked on the Sunday!!!
I'm away again in 2 weeks, but should have time for a few posts, school holidays permitting, lol.
Anyway, on with my post. It's my youngest's last day at nursery next week, after 5 years and 3 months of nursery fees I can't believe my babies are both school children, even if they are still the babies of the school-my son will be in year 1 and my daughter in reception. Getting back on track, I needed to make a thank you card for the girls at the nursery as my kids have had a great time there, so when I saw this challenge it couldn't have suited me better.

I don't know why, but it's not turned out quite like I had in my head. With the huge sunflower I didn't think roses would have gone, and I'm not too sure about the flowers. But, I'm entering it into Lili of the Valley. I'm posting this with my phone, so I'm going to have to see if it's worked ok, if not I'll have to get the laptop out and amend it.

I've got a favour to ask everyone out there in blogland. I'm after this die

It's a discontinued 2 x 2 quickutz scallop photo corner die, rs-0136. I live in north east and don't have many places to mooch. If anyone happens to have 2 of these I'd love to buy it if possible, or if you know where there's any for sale. I'm checking eBay all of the time, but so far have had no luck :(. Drop me a line at with any info, cheers.

Hope you're all having a great weekend, I'm on holiday countdown, 14 days time and we'll have just about landed.

Take care, hugs
