I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.I finally went downstairs today to witness the "craftermath" of the holidays. Ha ha! The few days leading up to and including Christmas Eve were a whirlwind of crafting and baking! I had so much fun, though! We don't usually leave our neighbor gifts until the last minute like we did this year, but I thoroughly enjoyed baking and packaging up all of the goodies.
Every year, I feel the sadness as I pack away the Christmas wrap and tags, the Christmas crafting supplies and papers. I try to relish the time as I create thank you cards for the special people in our lives who have given us gifts. I took some time this morning to get started. I decided to use this cute little mouse set that I didn't have a chance to use yet. I can feel some fun Valentine's designs coming on as well.
I paired it up with "Fair Isle" prints as well for a sweet, cozy feel. The sentiment (which gave me fits) is from Tree Trimming Trio and is my go-to set for my holiday thank yous. I embossed it using detail silver embossing powder and a heat tool. I COULD NOT...no matter how much I tried...get the embossing powder to not clump. It is supposed to be for details but it wasn't working. I just went with it and even though they're not perfect, they look ok. I actually decided to add a little bit of ink splatter around the sentiments to give it a purposeful look. wink wink. I hpoe you all have a Happy New Year! Thanks for fluttering by!
P.S. Wish me luck as I work my way through my mess!
