I'm a firm believer in saying 'thankyou' to people.  A little thing like sending someone a thankyou card (especially when they are not expecting it) can make all the difference to their day.
It's the Bentley Heath Country Market AGM today and there are so many wonderful people who have helped the market over the past year that it seems appropriate to thank them.
I decided to get a bit 'messy' and do something a bit different: these are mixed media cards.  The backgrounds were made using a brayer and acrylic paint, followed by stamping in various inks and colours.  (I also put a touch of glitter- more on some than others).  The sentiment stamps and feather are by Clearly Besotted while the flowers were free stamps from Craft Stamper magazine.  The rose and lily I coloured with water colour paints.

Hello 'Spring': surely spring should be on it's way now! :-) I went all out on this card and cut into some glittered papers and kraft card that I had been saving for ages.  Anyone else do that- save the papers and embellishments they love the most and then look back in ten years and wonder why?
I do still love this paper and kraft card, but if I use it, then I can buy more!!! LOL
