Seize the Heroes!!!

There is an extra challenge at Seize the Birthday blog and it's called Seize the Heroes, make a card for one or more (up to 3) for the challenge to say Thanks to our frontline workers. The first card I made is to honour my daughter's profession, Cleaning!! Along with their regular cleaning of buildings they were asked to disinfect a retirement building.

The digital image is from Lacy Sunshine, I love these images and it's hard to find something pertaining to cleaning, I'm glad I had this one in my stash. I followed the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 There are two sketches to choose from. Thanks was cut three times from navy cardstock and glued together for elevation. After playing around with many many many pieces of cardstock to match the turquoise paper I had to go with navy and I love it.  "note to self AGAIN...pick paper first)

Couldn't resist a close up, look at the "dust bunnies" 

I am entering this in:

Thanks for visiting today and check out the the challenge and make a thank you card for our frontline workers. (I will be dropping this off at my daughter's house tonight so she finds it when she gets home from work)

Barbara what a lovely card to give to your daughter who is doing an amazing job during this horrendous time that we are all living through all over the world. Love this Lacey Sunshine image I must make a card using some images I have, you forget sometimes what you have on your computer. Love your design papers. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
