Thank You Michelle

When I got back from New York there was a pile of post waiting for us! (I have never seen so much junk mail in my entire life!).  But amongst all that stuff for recycling was a surprise!  A wonderful Flickr Friend totally caught me off guard with an envelope filled with goodies that I could use on some cards!  Thank you Michelle!  You are the sweetest!  I am not sure what I did to deserve this gift but I will graciously accept it and send you some cyber hugs! Michelle is from New York, just where we were visiting when she secretly put that parcel in the post for me! And wasting no time, I have put your beautiful felt flower to use on a cyber Thank You card for you.

Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (The Girl's Paperie)
Ink: CTMH dye ink (Baby Pink); Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Wplus9 (Sweet Nothings); HA (CL488)

Love that paper from The Girl's Paperie, it's so feminine, and it just goes so well with that beautiful flower.

Wishing you all an awesome day!  (I now need to get myself motivated to go and workout at the gym!)
