A Christmas Thank You

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

Now that all the holiday hoopla is over and things are calming down it's time to think about getting the Thank You cards made & sent. This one is simple and quick to whip up!

I had this Stampendous stamp in my collection quite a few years so i'm not sure if it's still available.
I stamped it in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. Then I layered it on top of a Martha Stewart Doily that was in my stash. I don't think they are available anymore but I could be wrong. Really though, any doily would work!
My Real Red panel is cut to fit on my Thick Whisper White cardbase. I used an embossing folder from The Paper Studio with Holly Leaves & Berries on it to emboss it. I adhered it to my cardbase then added my sentiment panel with a dimensional to finish it up!
Sometimes less is more and i'm starting to like that concept!

Christmas Thank You Card:

Stamps: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White (cardbase), Real Red, Whisper White, MS Doily
Accessories: Circle Punch, The Paper Studio Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Have any of you put your Christmas decorations away yet?

Monday we worked most of the day to get it all taken down & put away. I use to let it up until after the New Year but the last few years it has come down the day after Christmas.
I love Christmas but now i'm ready for life to get back to normal.

It sure is dark in the evenings now with no Christmas lights!


My thoughts today....

Yep, burnt out!

That is all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
