A Thanking We Will Go Blog Hop

I am pleased to be hopping today with a group of talented artists in the A Thanking We Will Go Blog Hop.  Our assignment was to make a grateful hostess gift.  I have had several wooden blocks laying around since I unmounted my stamps in the spring and this seemed like the perfect time to use some.

 
I painted the blocks with acrylic paint  and used ModPodge to add the Basic Grey paper from the Indian Summer line.  I cut the letters using my Cricut and the Jasmine cartridge on Pear Pizzaz card stock and used my favorite Neenah paper to print my image of Virginia from InStyle Stamps.  I finished off the piece with a few buttons I found on the clearance rack at Michael’s. 
Be sure to visit the other talented ladies in the hop.
