Time to say thank you!

Had a little constructive play time this weekend.  It's time to get the Christmas thank you cards made.  Used the sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club and my new Berries stamp from Technique Tuesdays Greenhouse Society to create another Christmas thank you card.

Inked up the edges of my card base and the edges of my patterned paper with Gathered Twigs Distressed Ink.  Added some Old Paper Distressed ink to the doily for a vintage look.  Stamped my image on some textured card stock.  Added some white Prismacolor pencil and some Barn Door Distressed marker to the image.  Minimal coloring made for a quick card!  This simple image has quickly become one of my favorites! Cut a strip of patterned paper and strip of card stock.  Inked the card stock with Distressed ink and adhered it to the strip of patterned paper.  Stamped the sentiment then adhered the sentiment strip to the image panel.  Popped the panel up with foam tape to finish off the card. 
   Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you will consider following!
Wishing you a blessed New Year!
