Straight after Christmas comes Thank You note time! I am fairly old fashioned in that I like my children to send proper, hand written, thank you notes for their Christmas gifts.
The majority of the notes sent this year were like the ones above. I used some fairly plain green and red background paper (mainly spotty) and used a die by Cheery Lynn to cut the word thank you. I added a little Christmas embellishment to add a bit of interest.
I also made some that weren't especially Christmas themed.
These ones are Me to You (Tatty Teddy). They are just toppers, background paper and some silver die cut mats.
These 3 were made using some of the Lily of the Valley toppers from the sheet I used to make my friend's birthday card. I used a lacey square die cut and Craftwork Cards oval sentiments.
A few words about me...time for an update! I'm a married stay at home mum with 2 children and I'm the right side of 50 (not that there's anything wrong with the other side and God willing I'll find out soon enough!) . I've been making cards for around 10 years now. I started when my daughter began receiving invites to birthday parties when she started pre-school (she's in secondary school now!). My card making goes in phases - I either seem to be very productive or very unproductive! My favourite cards to make are Christmas ones and I love that I found a hobby that allows me to indulge in a little bit of Christmas every day. It's not unusual for me to play Christmas tunes on the hottest day of the year - I think after 13 years my neighbours are used to it!
