A Very Big Thank you

I know I have good neighbours but last Tuesday I put that to the test by nearly cutting off my little finger whilst making a sandwich, I rang for a taxi and it was going to be 25 minutes and I knew I couldn't wait that long so I went next door and my neighbour wasn't home but her teenage daughter was, she helped me get the bleeding under control then went to my neighbour over the road who kindly took me to the local hospital and waited with me while they cleaned it and put sterile strips to close the wound, she then took me home and made me a coffee. I wanted to thank them and hubbie bought them both some chocolates and I made two little thank you cards.

It was quite difficult to make them as my hand is still healing but it was good therapy it  as  took my mind off the pain. All the ingredients were in my snippet draw, which is just as well as my printer has gone to printer heaven.

Images: Free with a magazine ages ago
Papers: "little check" and "gingham" both Pink Petticoat
Cardstock: "basic grey" stampin up
Sentiment: stampin up

Challenges: Snippet Playground
