Sunflowers....

Good Afternoon!
I hope all is well on the east coast! I see by the news there are many without power. My prayers are with you!
 I wanted to share the wonderful surprise in my mailbox today! First let me give you some history. The week we opened our little coffee shop there was this super cute teardrop trailer that came into the campground just behind the shop. The whole back of the trailer was covered with sunflowers... it was the coolest thing! The owners of that little trailer came into our shop for coffee and wi~fi every morning! Come to find out they were artist's! The scene on the back of the trailer was Anne's work!
This is the super awesome card that came with the incredible painting! Needless to say this will have a very special place in our shop! It just makes me smile every time I look at it! I can't believe how kind people are!

You know I had to make a thank you card!  My card pales in comparison to Anne's beautiful work! My card base is very vanilla layered with crumb cake and more very vanilla! The sentiment is from engraved greetings. I added some scoring and embossing to finish it off!
That's it for me today! Hope to be back real soon!
