Just a quick post today!  Happy Thursday!  I am still making thank-you cards; this one uses the FMS sketch by Jen Mitchell:
I went with a regular A2 card instead of a square one, using my favorite pattern from All Abloom and the floral image from Hello Darling:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Hello Darling Another Thank You Stampin Up

I stamped it in So Saffron, did a little embossing down the left side as well as some paper piercing, and added a sentiment in Mossy Meadow.  I added a little MM ribbon too, just to add a wee bit of interest! 

Cassidy tried to husk corn for the first time yesterday:


When she asked what the brown silk was, Grampy showed her what his grampy used to do to him!!!


And her reaction:


Silly grampy!  Enjoy your day!

So that's what the silk is for!haha..cute pics!

I like all the extras you added to your card...the paper piercing,the bit of ribbon, and the embossing on the side. It all balances out perfectly, such a pretty card!

I was going to tell you about a video I saw that cooks the corn and removes the husk and silk with no mess, but Grampy's method is way more fun! Great pics (and the card is not too shabby too)!

Wow, LeAnne! This is stunning. Love the stamp set that you used, and the colors, but especially love the details of the piercing and embossing. Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
