Aussie Farmers' Thank You

Hello and welcome to you this Monday morning:-) I needed a quick card recently to say a big thank you to someone I have never - and probably will never - meet, but am very grateful to. Over the last few weeks we have been ordering a box of beautifully fresh meat and veggies from Aussie Farmers Direct. The delivery time is not what you'd expect - it's in the middle of the night!! From 12 Midnight to 7am is what they say....But here's the special part - we are number 5 up a long driveway and we NEVER hear them come!! We are quite light sleepers - even Sally the Lab doesn't make a sound - they must park on the road and walk up the shared drive so as not to disturb the neighbours - so incredibly thoughtful!! It deserved a block of chocolate to keep the energy up on night shift as well as a card as these boxes are heavy and we never expected they wouldn't drive up the drive - the Postie does after all :-)

After taking this photo I added some gold twine - you can see that in the next one ...
It seemed so appropriate to use the Thoughtful Branches and an apple tree.
Both the card and the chocolate were gone in the morning so we hope they liked it :-) It is a little reminiscent of the tooth fairy experience - although this time the farmer "fairy" got a surprise too :-)

Card stock: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, WW (behind the DSP for strength)
Designer Series Paper: Serene Scenery Stack
Ink: Garden Green, Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Thoughtful Branches
Access: Big Shot, Beautiful Branches Thinlits, Wink of Stella, Bakers Twine Trio Pack (Gold),

Thanks for stopping by today - in this day and age where it is becoming the norm for people to think only of themselves it is really lovely to be able to share a story of someone thinking of others :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
