Delightful Daisy Double Z Joy Fold card

A special card for a very special lady... who inspires me all the time and that I am proud to call my friend!

For those of you that just want the card tutorial... click here...

So a card for a fellow Stampin' Up demonstrator, a fellow team mate in our Julies Jems team... the Midlands branch... and also called Julie... Julie Wade of Create Handmade Happiness....
So a couple of weeks ago... Julie and her large heart had an idea... an amazing idea... and an idea that had most of us in the Jems Stampin' Up! team stop in our tracks... and go and make something very worthwhile... something that would hopefully make a little difference to last Thursday for a lot of people...

As the Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart says "in this we make a difference" and I hope that we in our way did
Pop over to Julie Wade's blog here to learn more... but between us we made 946 cards to say "thank you for all that you do" and posted them off to Manchester... to the 8 hospitals involved... the Police, Fire & Ambulance Services and the staff at the Manchester Arena. 
This was my parcel of 40 cards being sent off... which also had my local Post Office tears as I explained what we were doing...
Then I decided that one more Thank You card needed to be made and sent... so here you have it... a special card for a very special lady.... along with its twin that my ladies will be making in this month's classes! Once a demo... always a demo huh!!
And Julie... a laugh for you! I made a mistake... I couldn't fit your daisy on bottom left as intended... I would have covered up part of the message... oops!

And .... I have to point out the words that I used inside in Julie's card (though I did later admit that I never thought I would use this sentiment in the Thankful Thoughts stamp set) ...each and everyone of those words were what needed to be said to the lady that not only had the original idea... but rallied round finding the relevant contact points and addresses...  and got the whole Team organised... thank you again Julie! (are you crying again yet !!!)

And I also used... 
Delightful Daisy papers ... one to spot on my Favourite New Catalogue items...
Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper
Daisy Delight bundle ... also on my Favourite New Items List and be warned... stocks moving out fast...
Daisy Delight Photopolymer Bundle
Window Shopping Clear-Mount Stamp Set
And Labeler Alphabet... the set that allows you to say anything!

Now very very sadly I have had to come back to this post and edit it to add... that we are again quickly launching into creative action and making more of these heart-felt cards to just say thanks for what you do... destined for London this time...
