Thank You

Good morning my crafty friends, hope you're safe & well this dull, grey morning.

Today's make is another using those fabulous interchangeable dies from
A different card fold for me this time.....I made an envelope style card where
the panel on the right can be written on the back and popped into the envelope.
I decorated the front of the envelope with some floral decoupage, lightly inked
the thank you panel just to give it a bit more definiton & I added seam 
binding just to make it easier to remove the panel.

I was woken by a knock at the door early this the time I'd gotten out
of my chair and unlocked the door there was nobody there. No parcel left on doorstep,
no card through letterbox.....and they only knocked the once. Was starting to think I 
must have dreamed it but the dogs did bark so it must have happened. It was a bit early
 for 'business' type callers (not that I'm expecting any) and family & friends know it 
takes me a few minutes to get to the door so all a bit puzzling really.
Under normal circumstances I wouldn't have given it a 2nd thought but since
lockdown it's very rare that anyone knocks on my door! Oh well, I suppose if it's
important they'll come back.
