Thank You Card ~ Thanks

OMGosh have I missed having the energy to craft.
I have literally been sick with something 
or another since school started in September.
My new co-worker and I were moved into a 
new room this year and boy have we suffered.
We both have awful allergies. I also have asthma.
We met with our principal to see if we could move to another location.
He brought in someone from risk management 
and they determined our heater is not working properly. 
We could have told them that since it is usually 75+ in our room.
It should be taking in 10% fresh air from outside but isn't.
They are waiting for parts to fix the heater. I sure hope that helps.
Anyway that is why I haven't  crafted, posted or commented much.
Thanks for understanding.

I got out some Paper Smooches goodies to play with.
I just bought the flower and butterfly dies.
They are a perfect addition to my Paper Smooches collection.
First I die cut the flowers from the black background.
Next I inlaid the colorful flower trio.
I die cut a few circles to add to the flower centers.
Then I stamped and die cut those sweet butterflies.
I added the sentiment to finish off my card.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Butterflies from the Flap Happy stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*Butterflies cut using the Butterflies 1 die set from Paper Smooches.
*Flowers cut using the Big Bloom die set from Paper Smooches.
*Sentiment from the Many Thanks stamp set from Paper Smooches.
*Circles cut using the Nesting Circles die set from We R Memory Keepers.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
