From the bottom of my heart...

It was my birthday yesterday and my someday-to-be mother-in-law gave me an unbelievably generous gift...so the least I can do is make a Thank You card for her, which actually she loves to get. I got to again use this really cool stamp from Hero Arts called Collage Thank You. I used it once before for a card I made for my own mother who I could make her a Thank You card every week and it could never say how thankful I am for her, as amazing as she is and doesn't really know it.





Love shiny sheer ribbon!


The stamp in the inside I've had for awhile but have not used until now...$1 Studio G stamp designed by Kolette Hall (got to love those $1 stamps!!!):


Another item I've had for awhile that I don't use enough is this great embossing & border punch by Fiskars "Eyelet Lace":


Recipe:
-CS: TPC "Plum Tree" and "Parchment Ivory", MM "Smooth Grapevine"
-PP: DCWV Old World Stack
-Stamps: Hero Arts "Collage Thank You" and Studio G by Kolette Hall "Thank You"

TFL!!
