Timeless Tuesday...say thank you



Today at TT over at Flourishes we are to make a thank you card. Well I don't need one at present but it's always nice to have one available now isn't it? I used the image from Spring Bouquet and when it came time to put it together I didn't have a cute flower shaped button in pink so I went with the yellow. I guess it's Ok but would have preferred the pink. My card is a pink base ( of course you can see that ) with the bottom being dotted swiss. Did you ever wonder why it's called dotted swiss instead of let's say dotted french or dotted german? Anyway I used my favorite method of coloring ...my water colored pencils of course and my die cut is one from SU. The thank you phrase is from the Flourishes Clematis set punched out with the fancy little rectangle. And voila I'm done.
Really tired today as I did all my yard work and I guess when you get to be my age that is quite a feat! It looks lovely with my grass being a very healthy green and my flower box filled with the most beautiful deep purple petunias along with some lavendar bocupa flowers. I'll take a picture when they get a bit fuller but it sure is pretty. Hope you are all doing well and are experiencing good weather. It's a nice 65 here with plenty of sunshine. Good week to you all.
