Thank You

A big thank to all of you who sent me a Christmas card or gift. They are all lovely and thank you so much for thinking of me.

I've been playing with one of the Valentine stamps - Flowerfull Heart from the Whole Lot of Love suite of products. A photo of one of the ones that I've made is below.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp sets : Flowerfull Heart and Lots of Thanks
Card Stock : Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Whisper White
Designer Series Paper : 2013-2015 In Color Designers Series Paper Stack
Ink : Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding Stampin' Write Markers
Accessories : Hearts Collection Framelits, Coastal Cabana Ruffle Stretch Trim, Stamp-a-ma-jig and Dimensionals.

The heart took a little time to colour in using the Stampin' Write Markers, but I love the effect. The Thank You comes from the stamp set and I used the Stampin' Write Markers because I only wanted to ink up part of the stamp. I also used my Stamp-a-ma-jig because I didn't trust myself on getting the greeting on straight.

I thought I'd also share photos of the cards that I received, as I imagined that you might like to see them. Don't worry, I not going to name names in full, unless you want me to. Let me know.

Going Clockwise from top left : Dawn, Paula, Susan, Helen and Alison
Please note that the cards are not actually hidden away in my craft room. I just thought that this was the best way to photograph them.

And, last but not least

L to R : Nicky and Jenny
Yep, Jenny decided on the day before Christmas Eve (at about 3 pm) that she wanted to make some Christmas Cards for the family. I sent her into my craft room (which was probably a mistake) and suggested she go look at some of the samples I had from classes etc. She came back with the original of the one on the left which I had used for a Christmas Stamp-a-stack. Luckily I had enough card stock left, so having pre-cut the card and given her the stamps, ink and dies etc I left her to it. There was of course some instruction on how to ink up the stamps (she can be very a little heavy handed) and how to use the Big Shot. I think she did a brilliant job.
