Each year I think how nice it would be to send proper thank you notes to all of my family and friends who have given me Christmas presents, but it is a busy time of year and what I actually send is an email, which I am sure you will agree, is not the same.
Today sees a new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges, the theme was chosen by the lovely Helen and is entitled 'New'. I was lucky enough to receive several crafty items for Christmas so I got them all out and chose this really pretty 'Thanks' stamp from Stampin' Up as my new item.
I made 12 cards so, hopefully, I shall have enough cards to send one to everyone who gave me a Christmas present.
The papers and card I used are fairly new, I got them from Stampin' Up just before Christmas. I coloured the stamp with my Wink of Stella pens so they have a nice twinkle to them. To finish the cards I added some Card Candi from Craftwork Cards.
So, a big thank you to all my friends, especially the ones who gave me crafty bits and I promise to get my cards in the post now.
This post also gives me the opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all of your support over the past year. I really do appreciate your visits to my blog and all of the wonderful messages of encouragement you leave me. Thank you.
