Better late than never... thank you/birthday gift

This set was made for an aide at school.  It was a birthday/thank you gift.  She had given us some of her homemade jam and I wanted to thank her.  Her birthday had just past so I took advantage of that and used my snail stamp.  The stamp and phrase are clear $1 stamps.  I was very pressed for time so this is a VERY simple card and canister.  The can is a frosting container that I knew I'd find a use for.  It's filled with her favorite candy.  The cute little snail is colored with Copics.  I used a combination of paper and silk flowers secured with coordinating pink striped brads.  A little stitching with the sewing machine and I was done.
