Thank You

Good morning!
I do hope you had a lovely weekend... 

A couple of weeks ago Pat and I were invited to lunch as a thank you for the work we do at Thursday Club.... I can't believe how quickly the weeks have gone and a new term starts this week!
Anyway, I made a quick Thank You card to send


When I say quick... It was mostly made up of left over bits


The Thank You stamp was a gift from my friend Stella and is embossed in silver whilst the flowers and foliage have been embossed in gold... Seems a bit of a trend with me lately Lol!

Well, tomorrow big brother and I are off to Lincoln... I can't tell you how many times my Aunt has changed her mind about moving and we decided that perhaps if we collect her and bring her to stay for a couple of days, she could see the available properties herself and we could all be together to discuss things.... She is seeing a cadiac nurse today who will explain the situation regarding her health -  After all, a move may not be recommended. 
As she can't climb stairs, hubby and I spent yesterday moving furniture from a room downstairs so we could convert it into a bedroom and hopefully she will be comfortable. It was so funny to watch the cats, talk about curiosity, they thought is was marvellous that furniture was being moved around... They took turns of climbing inside an emptied out cupboard, then went under the bed, which I'm sure they think is for them,  explored the empty upstairs bedroom as though they had never seen it before and delighted in finding a couple of their toys had resurfaced... Lol!

I hope to catch up with you all later in the week, have a good one!

Such a lovely thank you card with left over bits, Ros! How sweet of Stella to give you the wonderful sentiment! And, it looks perfect embossed in silver! I do save left overs, but seem to rarely use them. How sweet of you to have your Aunt stay to help her figure out her future plans. I'm sure it's an adjustment for her and having you and your brother help her is a great idea. I'm sure she will appreciate it! Good luck with the plans and have a great week, hugs!

Cute, cute stamp! I just love the bright green with the wood grain paper, and your embossing makes it even more special. Good idea to bring your aunt home for a bit. It should help her make up her mind (hopefully).

Your left-over bits came to life with your pretty design, Ros! I love it!! I think the plan for Auntie makes common sense. It is a big change which can be very hard on some people. In any event, she will love that you have made her up a room to feel like home for her stay. Enjoy and good luck! So funny about the cats!! Hugs, Darnell

I love how you used all your pretty scraps, Ros. Such a beautiful card made with love. TFS my friend.
Good Luck with helping your sweet Aunt make a final decision. Hugs..

Mia said...

Quick but soooo beautiful card, Ros! Love green leaves and the grey heart! Kisses, my friend.

What a pretty card Ros and I'm so impressed that you had such lovely 'bits' lying around. I love that pretty wood background - it really enhances the foliage feel. Good luck with your Aunt and I hope the visit does what you hope!I agree with you about the summer passing too quickly - I can't believe the nights are starting to draw in so soon.
Hugs
Carol

Pretty~pretty use of your leftovers...you make me want to sit down and use up lots of my own, but it's a time thing for me (never enough of it..sigh)!! I hope you get your Aunt issue figured out and things settle down for you, it will be nice to have her for a visit though...how fun!! The cats are funny, isn't it strange when you move things around how much they notice, I am always amazed by that..crazy critters...lol!!

Barbara said...

Such a lovely card! I love it when leftover bots and pieces cme together like that. I hope your Aunt will like it at your place - and that whatever the decision will be in the end, it will be the best one for everybody.

Would love to have seen those kitty cats--must have been so entertaining! Big decisions are so hard--what a great idea to bring her down to see things for herself & be able to talk with you & your brother. You're such a sweetie, Ros. I know you love her dearly & can't imagine not doing all this, but it's amazing how many people even more closely related would not. Gorgeous card--good thing you saved all the bits & pieces! Never used to think gold & silver could be used together, but it is beautiful! I even have a pendant with both that hubby picked out a few years ago. Sending big hugs, Greta

Stella said...

You just take care; I know youar eextremely busy. Your card looks great; I am always impressed how you use your left over bits; this is so lovely!
Any news about your aunt and her house?
Sending a big hug!
