Challenge #83
Flowers & Butterflies

This fortnights challenge 'Flowers & Butterflies' has been chosen by Debbie.

So not like me to leave a creation till late in the day to create, I don't do well under pressure lol.  Alas life got a bit busy and this one sort of caught me out but everything for a reason I always say.  I really wanted to make a thank you card for the staff of Morrisons here in Berwick, what a awesome supermarket they are being, right from the start of lock-down they have gone way beyond anything ever expected to help our community.  I am not an online supermarket shopper but times like this means I have had to give it a go as am self isolating.  So why do I praise Morrisons so highly, they have never had a delivery service here in Berwick but are our favourite place to shop.  That meant 10 weeks ago when hubby and I locked our front door to the world we needed to have some food delivered.  Our amazing daughter offered to help and we took her up on that but I felt so guilty as she is a home carer out and about, shopping for others too and I know she dreaded coming near me for fear of what else she might bring with the shopping.  I managed to get a slot with Iceland and that worked but the following week it was the same prob most other folks were experiencing, a 3 week wait for a slot so that was not going to work.  I contacted Morrisons and the manager, Sandra, was fab, she said to send her my list straight away and she would have it all packaged up for us to collect. and that they were working on starting up online shopping and delivery which would start in April.  Alas that meant me going out and I was not prepared to do that.  My daughter continued to help and I continued to feel guilty :) :).  As good as their word the online shopping and delivery started the first week in April, oh how chuffed I was until I found that, bless them, trying to do everything as fast as they could, the website was not offering the things we needed - milk, fresh meat etc. (we are not big frozen or ready meal buyers).  Another quick message via FB to Morrisons and they were so sorry but it was just taking time to set up the website and it would not be long before it was all working as it should but as I was self isolating they would pass my number over to Aaron who would call me back to arrange my shopping and have it delivered.  And that is exactly what happens, now I message on a Tuesday, Aaron phones me back normally before 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning and by lunchtime on Wednesday my shopping is dropped at my door.  How easy this supermarket has made life for us at this time, I truly thank them from the bottom of my heart.

So for my thank you card to them I really wanted it personalised so decided to hot foil the designed text using the WRMK hot tip that fits into a die cutter.  The text was designed on SCAL.  I then used a Tim Holtz stencil and Distress Inks to create my rainbow coloured panel - it has to be rainbow coloured as the wonderful staff are all carers in my eyes.  I then stamped the silhouette flowers, die cut the gold butterflies and added a couple of black pearls to each of them then completed the assembly of the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges : -
