Good afternoon.  It's back to work for me tomorrow and I know I will be busy, so I thought I would show you the thank you card that I made for Lauren the lovely young girl who has been house/dog sitting at work.  This card is from the dogs  ( very clever they are asked me to make this) haha. I just thought it would be a extra thank you for Lauren.  I got the idea from when I was at our Stamping Up day, this is one of our makes.
Very simple but a lovely little gift.
This is my take for Lauren 
 I embossed the card with a SB heart folder, using the large heart side, then I ran my red card through using the small heart side hand cut out my heart shape and also hand cut and wrote my sentiment. Added the two small chocolate bars, nothing to it but just a small fun thank you card.

Off soon to see to the dogs and make sure the stove fire is ok, I have done the shopping to save them stopping off to pick up supplies.  A pot of Spaghetti  Bolognese made for tea too.  Just little things that I am glad when we come back from being away and one of ours do these little things. 
Patricia and I had a good day out on Friday, we just went to Ikea had great time just looking at all the things and thinking what we could do with them, had lunch then home. Was just a lovely catch up. 
Thank you for calling in and seeing what I have been up to, and leaving your lovely comments.
Here's hoping this coming week will see some better weather, stay safe and dry what ever you are up to.   My girls are at school Monday and Tuesday then they are off on half term so it's full time hours for me.

  17. A very cute & thoughtful card, sure to bring a smile from the recipient as she enjoys the chocolate. There's a lot of creative detail on this one, not to mention the bright colors. Love the little arms holding the chocolate too. IKEA is always such fun to browse ...they have some good organizational storage too. Don't think I've ever gotten any of that pretty tissue I saw making the flower in a later post...I will have to make sure of that next time I shop IKEA! Don't think we even got any bags to carry our merchandise! TFS & Hugs
