Just to say Thank You

Good morning lovely bloggers, how are you all this morning?

Now then, a little something to share with you all.  From when I was just a little nipper, I was brought up to appreciate everything, and to say thank you when someone has shown me kindness, so I've always got a pack of thank you cards or paper in my house ready to write and send.  Sometimes, however, when I have been reduced to a blubbering wreck because of a great kindness, I like to send an extra special thank you card which speaks for itself and doesn't need many words, so this brings me onto todays card.
I've made this card for my great Auntie, who, no matter what, is always there to lend an ear, and is ALWAYS able to offer the most amazing advice.

Drip Drop Tilda is one of my favourite Tilda's - drops of rain have already started to fall but her tilted head and expression tells me she still can't decide whether to put her brolly up or not, lol. I've coloured her up with DI's, added a LOTV postmark or 2 and also 'sprinkled' a little frantage around her - I love this stuff.

The pinky/peachy flowers are from WOC and I've rolled the green ones myself with a Marianne die.  All flowers have a generous helping of twinklets.  I've added some gorgeous lace behind the image from LLC and used a doohickly lace border die also - this was also used to make the tags.  The butterfly was cut from a quickutz revolution die and I've added a coupla little buttons on it from my stash.

I bought some fluffy socks the other day to make some sock snow people, previously posted, and the ribbon used for the bow was wrapped around the socks - ha, don'tcha just love it when they do that - freebies, yey, lol.

As usual my papers are very old stock from Craft Creations, apart from the gingham paper, which is a digi paper which was downloaded from Bevs Blog here.  All the pearls are from my stash.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
