Thank You

Good morning to all you lovely crafty people and a very warm welcome to my new follower Jackie. I'm so glad you are following my blog.
My post today is a Thank You card with a bit of a story. Before Christmas my daughter-in -law sent me some craft stuff a colleague at work had given her to give to me..The lady used to craft but had given it up and asked Fiona if I could use it. So I received a lovely padded envelope with some gorgeous stamps and other goodies.
I intended to send a thank you before I went on my long holiday but the days just seemed to go so fast. So last week I made a Thank You card for her using one of the stamps she sent. It was incredibly kind of her to think of me. So this is the card better late than never !!
