{Holiday Thank You}

Happy New Year everyone!  Hope you all had a very fun and safe holiday season.  Today was a nice and quiet day around our house.  We slept in and took it easy for most of the day.  I convinced my hubby to help me take down the tree and get things back in order.  Although I love the decorations and lights around the house, it is nice to get things back to normal.  It is surprising how quickly things can be taken down and put away...if only they went up that fast!! 

I wanted to share a thank you card I made especially for holiday gifts.  It came together rather quickly and I love how it turned out.  I used the Remarkable Wreath stamp from Close to My Heart and also the pine stamp from Papertrey Ink's Love Lives Here Holiday set.  The sentiment was also from PTI and it was from Think Big Favorites #4.  I embossed the sentiment with Filigree White embossing powder and I love how it jumps off of the card.  The little berries were punched out from the Owl Punch from Stampin' Up!  I used a little baker's twine from Martha Stewart to anchor the pine branches to the twig wreath.  Very simple but I love the look!  I also faux stitched a white border around the card to tie everything together. 

Hope you like today's card.  Please be sure to stop back soon for another project.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog. Your Dec. posts were very inspiring and helped me put together my gift packaging. The puppy themed party was such a unique idea - loved the pictures. Also to wish you and your family a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
