A little something to say thank you...

That is the challenge this week for STAMP SOMETHING, it's a little challenge blog, oh and did I mention I'm on the DT......Thank you is the theme for our second challenge because we are all so thankful to everyone who participated in our last challenge. It was such a fun time to visit new blogs and see what "firsts" everyone came up with last week. I can't wait to check out everyone's thank you's.

Anyway it's been a crazy week so I haven't stamped much so it was great to have a reason to make time and stamp!! However, between sick kiddos, a dead camera battery and digging a hole for a walkway, stamping kept getting pushed back a bit!!

Anyway back to the stamping. My mother-in-law loves to garden; she has a huge garden she plays in everyday. And this year, she gave me 2 small hydrangea(my favorite) to plant in our new yard. So I decided to make her this thank you clear envelope mini brag book. (check out this link for a tutorial) I've already taken photos of the plants to put in the book because unlike my MIL, as much as I'd love to garden, I'm horrible at it. Not sure why really, but I'm very good at the challenge of killing "guaranteed" plants. So I guess that's something... This way at least we can look at the stamped hydrangea.

I used one of my fav color combos-soft sky and sahara sanda with a bit of choc.chip. And of course, I took out the CB swiss dots folder. I colored the image with my wonder crayons and a blender pen for a super soft look.

Thanks for stoppin' by!
