Thank you...with Flair

It's Friday. Happy Friday.

It almost the weekend, and do you know what today means?? It's Unity Friends with Flair. I must say, I do enjoy participating in these weekly challenges. It also gives me a chance to use my ever-growing collection of Unity. just saying! ;)

I made a thank you card with one of my favorite stamps from Unity. It's a pretty recent one, one released in the past couple months. I fell in love with it, and just had to have it. Ever experience that? ;)

This card is made for a very special person in my family's lives. She is such an amazing woman...funny, kind, considerate, true. All wrapped up in a 5 foot frame. My kids call her 'Grandma Joan'. She is like their surrogate grandma. She's always thinking about us. She is just too kind for words.

Every once in a while, someone comes into your lives and is truly amazing. This is her. I just wanted to show my appreciation for her, so I made her this card.

I used Bazzill Cardstock, Cosmo Cricket's 'Little Girls' patterned paper, Strathmore watercolor paper, Unity stamp, watercolor pencils. The pink ribbon is something I had in my stash for some time.

I am pretty sure she will enjoy it. I am going to pop it into the mailbox this a.m.

Now it's too find an envelope that will fit this card--it's not the normal size. ;)

I am also linking this card to:
Inspire me Fridays 111- Anything goes

Have a great day.

Be safe. Get crafty
