Happy Friday, everyone!  I have a sweet thank you card for someone who did something sweet for me after I did something sweet for her, LOL!  And so I am using the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge shown here:

to make this:

LeAnne Pugliese Thank You Vellum Card Stampin Up

My friend (and I am sure she knows who she is by now!) gave me some gorgeous 12x12 papers, and I just had to use this particular one because both sides of the paper are so pretty, and worked perfectly with the sketch.  Using both Versamark and Strawberry Slush ink, I stamped a sentiment from Another Thank You on a piece of vellum and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then backed it with a piece of Whisper White on which I had stamped a few leaves from Papaya Potpourri.  I punched a flower from Strawberry Slush with the Pansy punch, distressed it and separated it into two pieces and added a Crushed Curry blossom (Boho Blossoms punch) and a Candy Dot brad:


And because my sweet friend is so thoughtful, she included some stickers for Cassidy to play with, and so Cassidy made a thank-you card of her own:


Have a great day!

Oh, here’s another thing that Grammy lets Cassidy do:  play with her food!  This time, it’s cheese!  Did you know that you can cut cheese into shapes and make things with it?




Creativity blossoms in so many ways!  And then you get to eat it!
