Giving Thanks...

Hello, hope you have all had a wonderful time over Christmas. We've had a lovely time, lots of gifts, lots of food, really can't complain about anything apart from... the dreadfully dull weather :-(

I always make sure my boys send thank you notes for all the kind and generous gifts they receive at Christmas. I have tended to buy packs of cards as we have to write so many but thought I'd make them this year. I wanted a design that was quick and simple to put together so it was easy to replicate. I bought a Very Merry Goody Bag from Craftwork Cards weeks ago for the bargainous price of a fiver and never used it for Christmas cards (completely ran out of time). I used some of the contents to make these Thank You cards along with a Pink Petticoat sentiment and a few sheets of Dovecraft paper. I made 20 cards in about 2.5 hours. Here's a selection of what I made...


I really like them, simple yet pretty I think.

Images, flowers, papers, candi, card blanks - Very Merry Goody Bag from Craftwork Cards
Other paper - Back To Baics Modern Christmas by Dovecraft
Sentiment - from the Tiny Heartfelt Sentiments set by Pink Petticoat

I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:
