Hey everyone - hope you had a wonderful Christmas if you were celebrating it! I had a great time with my Mom & Dad at their house, along with my brother & his wife. My two sisters wisely stayed in Arizona, rather than brave the below zero temps in Minnesota - can't blame them! I made a lovely ham dinner - did the ham in a crockpot using a Betty Crocker online recipe. Marinade was 1/2 cup each of Dijon Mustard, maple syrup, & brown sugar - yum!
Came home yesterday and got busy making thank you cards for holiday gifts from friends and family. Even though we don't really exchange gifts among our family anymore, I still got a couple of ornaments. I got a lot of snacks from friends which I really appreciate, even if my waistline doesn't!! I made 16 thank you cards, mostly variations of those in the top photo.
Supplies: Paper - Michael's Christmas red cards (3.5x5"); Stampin' Up Lost Lagoon; Hero Arts Daffodil, Pop-tone Black Licorice and Sour Apple, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, BoBunny Tis the Season & Altitude Collections 6x6
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints 20 (retired) & Thank You Circle Frame; Impression Obsessions DIE024-X Snowflakes Die Set & DIE241-Z Snowflakes Cutout; Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes; Poppystamps Spectacular Thank You
Stamps - Hero Arts CL368 Create Your Own Snowman - retired (holly)
Other - Copic Markers, foam tape, Icy Stickles, DCWV gems, Doodlebug enamel dots, Stick-It
I applied Stick-It to a full sheet of green card and die cut the circle frames. I used 3x3 chunks of card and after die cutting, decided the negative looked good enough to use. That way I didn't waste the Stick-It! I was, however, too lazy to find the teeny bits of the letters that had fallen all over the floor....
Today I finished them up, wrote notes inside and mailed them - whew! That was a marathon! Now, if we had a challenge blog like Merry Monday for Christmas thank you cards, maybe I'd have been in better shape - LOL. Thanks for stopping and, speaking of Merry Monday, be sure to stop back on New Year's Day to kick off a new year of challenges!
