"Mimi" Thank You Card and Look What My Son Grew

TGIF!!!  What's up for the weekend?  Well, for me, I'm hoping to craft, craft, and craft after I finish cleaning house.  

Here's a thank you card I made for my sweet friend using one of the images from the b/d gift she sent me.  This cutie is from the "Mimi in Paris" set.  Mimi's cap was paper-pieced with washi paper.

Keeping it a bit simple, I used the following:
DP from stash
Fran-tage.....or course.  Can't live without it...ha-ha.
Distress Ink
Flower by Prima
Sentiment in the center of the flower by Hero Arts
Flourish die by QuicKutz
Bling in the center of the flower by Jolee
Punch by EK

And HOLY COW, when I stepped into the kitchen a couple of days ago, my eyeballs almost fell out when I saw this gigantic squash on the table.  I placed a 12-inch ruler next to it so you can get an idea of how enormous this "bugger" is.  This monster-size squash weighs 14 lbs.  I call it a "torpedo."  LOL

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!!
