'Tis the Season....to say thanks....






Nance Leedy at The Paper Players provided the perfect sketch for a thank you card that I need to send this week.  A FedEx box arrived at the library addressed to Nancy (my partner in crime at the Circulation Desk) and me.  Inside were two dozen roses along with a thank you note from one of our patrons.  Wow - totally unexpected! The resulting  good feelings will last long after the flowers are gone. After I send this out to thank the patron, I plan to send a surprise thank you treat to someone who least expects one.  Oh what those flowers have started!

Beautiful card. I agree with all the comments on your leaves. And the fringe adds a interesting 3D touch.
