Christmas Thanks

Hello friends~  The year is coming to an end and a new year is just around the corner.  This is my last post for 2016 and I wanted to express my thanks to all my blogging friends for a year filled with encouragement and kindness.  I count myself blessed to call you all friends.

I took advantage of Ellen Hutson's after Christmas sale and picked up a few Christmas sets.  I didn't want to wait a whole year to use them so I made some "Thank You" cards with them.  This card used Darcie's Cookie's and Cocoa.  I love that coffee cup image!!  The die cut "Thank You" is from my sweet friend Michele from I Card Everyone.  Thanks Michele!!  

I had this stitched octagon shape with snowflakes left over from a shaker card I made and thought it would make a pretty focal point for the Hero Arts Snowy Tree.

This adorable image is from Stamping Bella "Chickadeer".  Seriously, they have the cutest stamps!!  You really have to see them!  I added a bit of Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter in Warm Diamond for some snow.  There are so many fabulous colors to choose from, it's hard to buy just one.  ;0)

I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything goes

Happy New Year to you all!  I'm looking forward to an exciting 2017!

Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

  13. These cards are so cute and my fave is the third one. Sorry for the late comment. I would like to invite you to link with us again for our first Challenge this year at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the encouragement found in 1 John 4:18-19 which tells us, "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us." Have a blessed day!
