Social Stamping - Thankyou

Hello and welcome to the second Social Stamping Blog Hop with so many talented crafters around the world joining in.
My friend Kelly Kent is the mastermind behind this and she put the group together to share our creations in a time where we are all social distancing and many are in isolation. It is a very unnerving time for a lot of people as some have medical issues and loved ones who are compromised and can not afford to get ill. Creating is my sanity at the moment as I am a pretty social person and not being able to meet friends just at the coffee shop or have a card class is really hard.

So here is the next theme that Kelly has set for us and it is "Thankyou"

You have come from Kelly's blog

I have made this "Thankyou" card for a very very special lady who has been helping my mum out since she found out her diagnosis. I will pop it in the post this weekend to her...

Again I have used the lovely papers from the Ornate Garden Suite. 
I am really enjoying playing with this set.
The ombre blues look great sponged over the background of the gold foil patterned papers.
