Thanks A Bunch

I am so blessed in life to always have so many people I need to say thank you to, the biggest one at the moment being my daughters stables for getting her home in one piece after "Pony Camp"!  The weather held up, the sun shone and all the kids appeared to have a great time.  She came home clarty, starving, knackered and with a ton of washing, but, most importantly, the biggest grin on her face!

Here's today's thank you card...


The image is a Popcorn Bear stamp from Crafters Companion stamped onto Papermill Direct white linen card and coloured with Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils. The papers are from the Indian Summer range by Basic Grey.  These have got big gorgeous autumn leaves all over them, but they are subtle and bit difficult to see in the picture.  The buttons are from Sonas Made.



 Here's the trusty Polychromo recipe sheet!
