Thank You...

Well that's Christmas almost over again for another year!
I hope everyone had a super Christmas and had lots of super presents from Santa! I hope you are not still suffering from turkey overkill like we are in our house! We are still plowing through the mountain of food we got for Xmas- goodness knows why we brought so much, being that there is only the two of us and the cat! Maybe it was the thought that we may have visitors, I suppose, or that we were going to get snowed in again & not be able to get to a shop for days!

I thought I would show you a couple of the Thank You cards I made to send out for the lovely pressies we both got. They are based on the cards we made at SU Convention this year at Addington- I'm really liking this stamp set & will be using it more in the future!

The stamps were inked up with marker pens, then spritzed with water before stamping onto water colour paper.(I actually did the first image straight onto the water paper & then spritzed the stamp with water,without re-inking, to get the second image). When this was dry, the image was spritzed using a marker pen a & the Colour spritzing tool.The image was torn around, mounted onto co-ordinating card, ribbon & button added, and then attached to the front of the base card.

Items Used:

Just Believe stamp set;
Card: Not Quite Navy; Bashful Blue; Cherry Cobbler; Wild Wasabi; water colour card
Marker Pens: Not Quite Navy;Almost Artichoke;Bashful Blue;Cherry Cobbler;Pear Pizzazz
Other: Old Olive grossgrain ribbon; Su buttons; linen thread; Colour Spritzer

I am going to make a New Years Resolution -to keep up to date with my blog & to join in more blog challenges in 2011, as I let work take over and lost my Mojo this year. I keep looking at everyone else's blogs & seeing their wonderful creations, but just do not have the inclination to do anything myself! Well, we'll see what happens!

Hope you all have a super New Years eve & day..... and keep crafting!
