GRATITUDE is an art form on it's own.  However, coupled with pretty paper projects, I believe gratitude goes to a new level of sincerity and beauty.  Today's project consists of a very simple pizza box that I made as a "thank you" for my neighbor after she delivered scrumptious homemade cookies as a surprise. The box perfectly accommodates the three mini note cards and envelopes tucked inside.

AND THE "BEET" GOES ON . . .  The Stampin' Up! Homegrown stamp set longs for watercoloring.  However, for those of you who have frequented my Stampin' Pretty blog for awhile, you know that watercoloring and Mary Fish don't necessarily mix.  I love the classic "botanical" look of these stamp images in Basic Black.  Quick and easy is the real bonus.

    7. I loved this video! I have never seen a little pizza box and I am so excited to make these. I actually had no interest in this stamp set, thought what would you use that for? And now after seeing what you did I actually really like it, they are really stunning looking?

      Oh, and I agree, only YOU can make these vegies look elegant!

    11. Wow! Classy and elegant…. and even perfectly matches your blog design! Definitely a winner of a project all around! 😀

    12. I like the look of the botanical stamps and the crisp, clean lines. You are the bomb!

    15. Mary…I love how you take the most simple of supplies and create the MOST beautiful cards! Wow!!

    22. There you go again! Taking a stamp set I have minimal to no interest and turning it into something stunning! Love this use of this set. Watercoloring and I don’t mix either.
