Thank you!

One of these days (ha, stop laughing!) I'm going to organize myself so that I don't binge-post. Not really. But it's nice to think that someday I might be that sorted out.

Happy Thanksgiving to my American pals - I hope you're all having a wonderful day enjoying your holiday traditions with the folks you love!

I've got a thank you card to share first today - this time of year I tend to create ALL THE CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL THE TIME and neglect my stash for other occasions...so this week I've been working hard on making everything BUT Christmas cards. (insert whine here...I just want to play with snowmen!)


Supplies: paper from Fancy Pants; Tumbled Glass distress ink; Versamark & clear EP; Stampendous sentiment; pearl strips from Dollarama; classic small & lacy circle Nesties; crochet mat

Entering this in a couple of Thank You themed challenges:

Andrea's Savvy Handmade Cards - until December 3
Crafty Creations Challenges - until December 3

Be right back (naturally) with some more cards :)
xoxo,
Jessi
