Hi everyone!  Yippee, it’s Thursday and that means the weekend is almost here!  I heard it might be 87 degrees on Mother’s Day!!  Yikes!  I always wait until Mother’s Day to put in my annuals….I think I could have done it a bit earlier this year!

I have a quick little thank you card using some retired items and the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday sketch:

Of course, AFTER I finished my card, I realized I didn’t have the sentiment in the right place….oh well!  This card uses Kind & Cozy, which is retiring, and Back to Black DSP along with a diecut border using one of the Finishing Touches edgelits (also retiring):

I used some non-SU dies for the scallop and circles, and the sentiments are from Another Thank You:


This one will be going out in the mail ASAP!  Thanks for popping by today!

Oh, the changing moods of a 4YO!  Who can be crabby when eating mint chocolate chip ice cream?



Enjoy your day and be blessed!


  1. I think mint ice-cream is what does the trick for 4 year olds. LOL Great pictures
    Beautiful cheerful cards. I really like the color combo.

  2. What a sweet "about face" to see. Mint chocolate chip ice cream?? Wow that's pretty powerful stuff there;)
    LeAnne this card is a beauty. I love the red/white/black combo - so striking and pretty. Way to showcase some pretty papers and that edgelit. I love the bit of gingham in there too. Great take on the sketch.

  3. LeAnne, I so admire your work! I would be completely overwhelmed by these colors and patterns, yet you have balanced them SO well!! You have made me love this set, I think I may snatch it up after it retires! Great job with this card!!

  4. Love the card, love the photos of Cassidy more - made me chuckle! I am also inspired by the top she's wearing .... might have to incorporate this into a card!!

  5. As always LeAnne, your card is awesome. I just love the color and element balance that you have created. My eye just wants to scan it over and over! lol Thank you for sharing your talent with us at Try Stamping -Or Not- On Tuesday.

  6. Beautiful LeAnne! I love a black, red and white color combo and this is gorgeous with all these layers and patterns. Love it!
