Santa Thank You Note

Well hello everyone! I hope your day is going along well, mine is so far!

I received a Christmas gift earlier this month and thought I would make this cute little 3 x 3 inch thank you note. I slipped this note inside the Christmas card that I sent to one of my clients, thanking them for remembering me at Christmas time. The only thing stamped on it is the sentiment, which is Teeny Tiny Wishes from Stampin" Up!. I first saw this Santa over on Patti Bennett's blog, he is made entirely with Stampin Up! punches. Isn't he just too cute and not very hard to make either. My upline Chanda, sent a kit to me to put one of these together, you can see her take on this cutie HERE. Chanda has all of the supplies listed on her post, so I will not repeat it here.

Well this is all I have for now, hope to see you again really soon! Oh, and have a crafty one too!

Snowman Christmas 2011

Wow..I'm on a roll with my posting, and it sure feels good to be here to and visit with all of you!

I've had this Penny Black stamp, Hot & Cold, for about three years now and everytime I see this little guy, it brings a smile to my face! I made two of these cards to send to two young ladies who are in basic training with the Army. I thought it would brighten their day. The stamp and the embossing folder are not Stampin" Up! but everything else on the card is.

D is for Dog Christmas Card 2011

Hi everyone! I'm so glad that I can come back here to visit with all of you! I finally got all my Christmas cards made and most mailed out except for the family ones, have to write a note in those, but those seven will go quickly.

Here is a card that I made to send to our vet this year. I've always have tried to stamp some kind of animal on the front, hopefully I will be able to find one for next year, maybe a cat? All products were Stampin' Up! except for the embossing folder and the Santa hat sticker. Can you see the mistake I made? That's because I stamped the sentiment and the lower portion didn't come out as dark as I wanted, so I re-stamped it on a scrap piece of paper, cut it out and put it over the mistake. A stampers gotta do what a stamper needs to do, lol!

Stamp:Heard from the Heart

Well, that's it for this post. Hope you all are ready for Christmas. Today I'm going to get my parents gift and some supplies to make my Cookie Platters for the neighbors. Hope you all have a crafty day too! Mary
