Thank you and an award......

The other day while visiting Micheal's the nicest thing happened!! One of the cashiers there just adores Rachel(my youngest) and she knew that she had surgery so for a get well present she gave us 5 tickets to the local amusement park!!! I couldn't believe it!! I almost cried right there!! It was the nicest thing and almost from a complete stranger!! We only know her from shopping there and it isn't THAT often!! (LOL) So I have made this card for her:
I have used this adorable Anya from The Greeting Farm and I have added flowers and a butterfly for the challenge that they have going on called "Fluttery Floral". You have to use flowers and at least 1 butterfly. I just adore the Anya stamps and the new ones are just the cutest as well!! This challenge just called out for prettyness and I hope that Gloria (Mike's cashier) likes it!! I would love to do something else for her but I am stumped. From what I know she has alot of health issues ~ diabete's, thryroid cancer and other things as well!! With all that going on I am just really touched she thought of Rachel!! If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them!!!

Paper: K & CO.
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: lace ~ JoAnn's, flowers ~ Prima, pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts

This award really meant alot to me as it is given to a single person and I was chosen!! Thank you so much Janny for giving me this!! I really am touched and it has made my day!!! I am sure you have all seen her blog or have received lovely comments from her as she is such a sweet lady!!! Thanks again

After thinking about this one I am going to pass this one on to Fran over at Franmade. She is extremely creative and funny all rolled into one!! At different times I would not only go to her blog for her beautiful creations but she used to play the best music and I would sit and play that distrating game she had as well! (LOL) I always love her comments to me as alot of times I laugh out loud!! I love alot of people's blogs but I have "known" hers almost since I started!!

Well Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!! It is always nice to see you!!
I hope you all have a fabulous day!!

Stunning card Kathy. This is my favourtie Miss Anya image and I love the vintage/distress effect k&co appers you've used. What a lovely RAK you received. Hope you think of a suitable thank you gift {although she probably doesn't expect one!}

Love this card Kathy & I know this thoughtful lady will love it too. People don't always expect things in return so maybe a couple of scrapbooked photos of Rachel enjoying herself at the amusements might be nice.

O.K few things to say . .

1. yeah right! "not often"?!!! who are you trying to kid?!! If she recognises you and the kids enouth to know to get 5 tickets LOL Hubby might believe you but I don't ;p

2. Awwww! You've made me go all warm & mushy inside :D thanks sooo much for the award can't believe you picked lil old me - it's made my day. Not surprised you received it though - I would have given you the award too xx glad you still pop over, even without the music (it was messing with blogger and half the songs have vanished so I took it off!)

3. Looove your card and I'm sure the lady at Mike's will love it. If she has a soft spot for Rach maybe you could get her to make her something or just get her to give her a little bunch of flowers or something - I'm sure she'd love that!

o.k essay over - have a lovely day/week Fran xx

Lilian said...

Gloria will LOVE this card - hey I WOULD! (My niece first in line of course) :) That was really nice of her to give you those tickets. I do agree with Kim, the love you have making this card is treasure and thanks enough. You can have Rachel write inside too. :)
Congratulations on the award! You do have an awesome blog! Love it myself (second to you-know-who) (wink) Have a great day!
PS: Susana has emailed me and my order went through...Thanks for the kind offer!!!

Anki said...

What a sweet thing to do of her. Love the card you've made for her. It's hard to know what to give to her, but if you could figure out if she is in to any crafts - then maybe you could give her a gift certificate for a lesson or just bake a cake and wrap it nicely for her. Love Fran's blog as well - and yes - I would sit there and play that game instead of making cards...hihi...... Thank you also for your sweet comments on my card. Sending you tons of hugs - Anki

Hi Kathy and WOW such a beautiful card. Love your Anya and the superb paper and embellishments, all gorgeous. I don't think I quite believe your story about Michael's as you're on name terms in there LOL :D but my goodness, what a sweet lady she must be and she'll love her card I'm sure. I think a little bunch of flowers from Rachel would be the perfect gift for her. I must have missed that Rachel had surgery, I hope everything is ok with her. Take care Sweetie and hope you're having a good week. Hugs, Chris x
