Happy Thanksgiving...

Hi everyone!
I recently had someone bump my car while I was in Crafter's Companion shop at Aycliffe.
A gentleman waited till I came out as he didn't no whose car it was.
He apologised he gave me all his details and asked me to get a price and he would pay for it.
True to his word he sorted the bill yesterday when the car was fixed.
It's so good to no that there is good people in the world we here so many bad things on the news.

Vintage Lace papers & die are CC.
I coloured the Conie Fong image with true blue Triblend AM.

Happy thanksgiving to all today.
