Happy Thursday, peeps!  The weekend is almost here, yippee!  And yesterday brought beautiful sunshine and warmer temps…finally!  I snuck in some stamping time before Cassidy came home from preschool, playing with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch to make a customer thank-you:

I had these Lullaby and Park Lane papers laying on my desk for something…..can’t remember what…so I used them!  I cut my Hello Honey card base a little narrower than normal so that it would still fit in a standard-sized envelope with the tag hanging off the edge:

I added a panel from the In Color Background papers in Pistachio Pudding, stamped some flowers from Flower Patch in Coastal Cabana and Soft Suede, and made a fun tassel from some baker’s twine.   Since my club girls will be doing some embossing techniques this month, I heat-embossed the sentiment from Another Thank You with Versamark and Soft Suede inks and clear embossing powder:

Can you see the shine?  I made an extra card for them since this one is going in the mail!

It’s April….still only April…..but Cassidy was so thrilled that it was warmer outside, she came out of her bedroom dressed like this:


She conned Grampy into giving her a tub to make a pool (she actually wanted us to put up our inflatable pool….NOT yet!!!) and she stuck her feet in and then hopped back out!!  Silly girl!

Enjoy your day!

OH so funny. We have had a couple of days that got nice and warm but not that warm. LOL We went to the cabin just to pick up something (4 hours each way) Anyway the temp were 55 and the children up there were in shorts and short sleeves. I had my winter coat on still.
Great card! I love how you used the tag. Great idea.
Happy Thursday!

A beautiful card and a beautiful girl!

Love your cards so much! What punch did you use for the center of the flower? Thank you:)

LeAnne said...

Hi Maureen! The flower and the center were both cut with the Flower Fair dies...they match the Flower Patch stamp set! Thank you so much for your sweet comments too!

Love those papers..a pretty background for the flower. The pool looks fun..but COLD!

Jen Mitchell said...

Oh, I love this combination of DSP. The flower is a pretty accent and the embossing on the sentiment almost makes it look like a shimmery copper. Nice look!

Lesley said...

I love these papers too, LeAnne! The shiny embossed sentiment is lovely too...adds a touch of elegance. Cassidy is a sweetie!! You must have so much fun everyday!

Lisa said...

Love the hassle on your tag LeAnne and that pretty little flower!! I would say Cassidy is more than ready for summer after the long winter!!

Such a great card LeAnne! Great mix of patterns and colours! Cassidy is such a cutie! We have our pool filled and the boys were in today! We did crank the heat for them though! It was such a gorgeous weekend! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
