Throwback Thursday Challenge with Emma

Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge this week is to make a thank you card the old school way. No cricut, no Gypsy. 
This set from SU called Day of Gratitude is definitely a fall set, but when I get a stamp set I always try to look for more way to use it. I want to see if it would work for an angle card.

Isn't she cute? I need to get the lighting right in my light box. The picture doesn't show how she sparkles. I used white embossing powder to do her dress and silver to do her wings. Her halo is covered in Stickles. The face is from the Peachy Keen stamp set called Winter Faces Assortment that I won from one of Emma's giveaways. I just LOVE this set. To makes this card really "Old School" I used stickers for the (U R An) that I got about 7 years ago at a Creative Memory party. Her hair is some fuzzy fibers. The words "Thank You" are stamped down at the bottom right with white ink. You can't see them but they are there.
This card is going to my in-laws' neighbor.  She has be so good to them, checking on them and bringing them meals.  I wanted to make her a special thank you card.

Here is another project I did with this set. I got the idea from LeAnne here. I just started them because I only had two mint patties. I have to get more peppermint patties and add the Happy Thanksgiving but I wanted to show you before Thursday. Yikes, is it only thee days away.

This is the stuff I love to make. Thanks for the great idea LeAnne!
Well I better run I have two Thanksgiving dinners to plan and make.

Be sure to stop by Tuesday for
