Christmas thank-yous

Hi friends! These are the thank you cards I mass-produced for all the Christmas gifts I received. I had 16 thank yous to send out, so I settled on two different cards, 8 of each.

On the first card I used some DCWV cardstock that I bought a year or two ago and have been meaning to use. The red, blue plaid, and white grid papers are Martha Stewart and the snowflake brad I believe is by Hot off the Press. I got the little blue flowers in a swap, but they're made of fabric, not paper :) I used my (then) new Fiskars treading water punch and my Marvy Uchida scalloped circle (2") punch. The sentiment and heart are Fiskars stamps, and I clear embossed the heart for fun (I hope it shows up). I think that's everything for that card. I played around with the layout because I've been reeeeeally trying to show off my patterned papers :)

The second card is one of my favorites. I love its simplicity and color scheme :D The patterned papers are also DCWV; the sea foam green is KI Memories and the tan circle is K&Co. I used my Cuttlebug for texture, an EK Success corner rounder, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. This card was super easy to mass produce and didn't take nearly as long to put together as the first card.

I've been tagged by a few different people, so I hope to play along tomorrow. My super-talented friend Annette is hosting a giveaway on her blog, Annette's Paper Bistro, so be sure to check that out! You only have until tonight to enter, sorry for the late notice!

I hope you're all having a happy Monday, thanks for popping in!

Hi Suzanne! I love the Gratitude card and especially the colors! Thanks for the link, you are so sweet! I didn't get many comments, it was a last minute decision and my photo wasn't very good, will definitely do better with my next blog candy and add lots more! Have a great evening!
