Thanks for your compliment about the card Deb (and Rebecca too)! I think I'm getting better at them, having never been that brilliant! I've been sent so many beautiful examples from y'all that its inspired me on many occasions!
This time, one of my staff actually called me up and asked me to make one for the doctor, which was a huge compliment for me. She told me he was really into his garden so it was ok to make it flowery! I really love that combination of lime and purple too - seems to make for a very good card combination - I think this is my 3rd in those colours!
Anyway he opened it tonight and really loved it. Told me his wife was really into flower arranging, so she would love it too - so sweet! I asked him his nationality as I thought he was Syrian and my son thought he was Turkish. Turns out hes Iraqi - a nicer chap you couldnt imagine!
Says he would never go back to Iraq (he left over 20 years ago) cos he could not imagine ever feeling safe there again.
