A Simply Festive Thank You

Here's another festive thank you card for your viewing pleasure. I was inspired by a lovely card made by Dawn Olchefske and I tweaked it just a bit. I do love the sparkle of the Silver Glimmer Paper behind the punched snowflake. It adds just the right touch, making this thank you card extra special.

You can put this whole card together in about 2 minutes - seriously! And it would make a great Christmas card, too. Speaking of Christmas cards, I'm getting my photo cards ready to mail out to family and friends, and I thought I'd share the pic of my kiddos.
Oh, don't you love the traditional holiday photo shoot? I took 85 pictures of my kids and I got ONE decent picture. I am NOT kidding! Does that happen to anyone else? Sheesh! I finally bribed them with a treat from the store (shameless, I know) and I was able to get a picture I could proudly send out. :)

Stamps: Thank You Kindly
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Snowflake punch, Real Red satin ribbon, Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine

Thanks a Million!

Happy Monday! I'm starting the week off with another card using the Just Add Cake designer paper. I'm starting to make some thank-you cards to use after the holidays, and this is one of the cards that we made at my last stamp-a-stack.

Fun colors and layout - a great way to use up all those little scraps of designer paper you're hanging on to for the "special" project. I hope it brightens up your Monday - have a super day!
