Thank You Mini Notes with Sizzix

AudreyPettit Sizzix EnvelopeThanksNotecard
One of my most-needed card supplies is simple thank you cards, and yet I rarely seem to have one on-hand.  This year, I’ve vowed to create a stash of thank you notes that are both quick and easy to make in bulk and are pretty, too. I love this simple design that I’ve come up with. I am crushing big time on pink these days, and love it mixed with the trendy look of gold.

So today I am playing with some scraps. And making some much-needed thank-you notes for a quick and easy tutorial on the Sizzix blog.

I have so many pretty papers left over from the Crop & Create: Delivered Kit- Blossoms & Breezes, and I’ve vowed to use those up, too. Love how the woodgrain looks with the soft pink and gold… and that printed vellum is amazing. Makes a fabulous liner for the new Envelope Movers & Shapers die by Tim Holtz. Another new favorite of mine from the winter release.

I am so excited to see Sizzix adding more stamps to their line-up of products. With ten different sentiment stamps to choose from in Stephanie Barnard’s adorable Thanks clear stamp set, I’ve now got plenty of ways to share my gratitude.

Snow Much Fun

Hi Sweeties! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! For me, things were a bit more hectic than I’d like, but I did get much accomplished. Today my last CHA box will be on its way to California. Huge sigh of relief! And on top of that, I managed to pack up most of my Christmas decor, too.  I’m hobbling around this morning from a wrenched back, and the house could be declared a disaster zone, but I survived, and that’s all that matters!

With CHA pending, I haven’t had much time for playing, but I do have some cutie pie thank-you notes to share. Made these as a mommy/daughter project with my Missy Nik. Very simple and very silly, but so much fun. The snowmen are our little fingerprints.

When my kiddos were wee tiny, we did lots of fingerprint art. And now that they are bigger, I still love it.

I’m hoping to make more of these sweet snowmen with both my peanuts this month, and maybe put them in a frame. Sure would jazz up my front entryway table, don’t you think?
