Hello everyone..

First off thank you so much for your lovely comments on my Seahorse, it was labour of love that's for sure.
Today I'm sharing a thank you card made for an order..I had to make my sunflowers with a daisy die and mucked around for ages to get some sort of sunflower look, then went to get a box of leaves from a container and there were already made sunflowers that I had bought as a bunch from the cheap shop..after a few terse words I added them into the mix..

So here are my sunflowers, pretty papers from internet and even printed out the gingham as I ran out of my own..

This is the box lid..

The letters are chipboard and I just painted them black..

Made a box to match..

This is the card...

New bird die and brick wall dies arrived..

Quite pleased with my sunflowers..

And the lady was very pleased when she picked it up..

Thanks so much for stopping by, I just had an e mail this morning to say 2 parcels have landed from Australia and I know what's in them so that's pretty exciting..
See you tomorrow..

Sunflowers always lift the heart... I've just sent a bouquet of them to my best friend for her 50th (they're her favourites), and I wish I'd thought of making cards like these too. Fabulous!

So beautiful! I love how you used the new birds as part of the background, it’s a lovely detail and your sunflowers still get all the glory they deserve.
