Thank You for MFTWSC186 and for Kim and Jody

This is my card for this week's My Favorite Things card sketch #186.    I missed the last two weeks and was happy I got it done this week.   All products are from MFT except the two SU Certainly Celery leaves and the DSP from Echo Park's Summer Bliss 6x6 pad.  I used MFT Sweet Tooth and Natural CS, Upsy Daisy,  Fishtail Flags Stax, Pierced Circle and Circle Stax 2 die-namics.  The sentiment is from LJD Gift Card Greetings II.  The daisy and sentiment panel are mounted with foam tape. I really like the way it turned out.
There is a special reason that it is a Thank You card as it is going in the mail to Kim van der Sanden (owner of MFT) and Jody Morrow (Design Team). My friend and I went to a class at MFT on Saturday and I was surprised to meet Kim and Jody.  They said they came in just to meet me as they aren't usually there on Saturdays.  I also met Kim's husband and youngest daughter and Jody's daughter.  Kim said they heard I had a rough year due to my recent family tragedy and wanted to do something nice for me.  They had this beautiful bouquet of pink roses and carnations and also a gift certificate to the store.  I was so surprised and happy that my eyes were a little weepy.  Needless to say I did some happy shopping.  It was a wonderful day.
