It seems like it has been forever since I sat down and made cards... Christmas is over, I am done making cookies and wrapping presents, and shopping, and cleaning up, and entertaining family, and eating cookies (okay, well, I am not done eating cookies, yet!)... so I spent some time today cleaning up my cardmaking table, and then I searched for some challenging on the internet to give me some ideas, and then I stamped, and stamped, and stamped... I have 2 cards that I want to share, and link to the challenges that gave me some inspiration!! I made another card (which actually ended up being my favorite), but it didn't fit one of the challenges, so I will share it another day!
Mostly I wanted to make Thank yous... because you can never have too many Thank yous after Christmas, so here goes!! both of these cards are applicable to these challenges/themes:
Cute Card Thursday: Challenge 145--Thank you!
Papertake Weekly: Thank You
Found another thank you challenge to join in at Phindy's Place
For One Layer Wednesday, I used one image stamp... from Close To My Heart, repeated in red. Then of course, the Thank You, so I can use it to thank one of the wonderful people who loved on me this Christmas.
And for Mojo Monday, a SQUARE card... this was new for me, but I like it, also used CTMH, so that I could enter into the Heart 2 Heart Challenge of a holiday card using CTMH... red/green, Christmas thankyou!
So, I just have to know, what are your thoughts regarding matching envelopes? is it worth the time/effort? do you notice it when you receive a card with a matching envelope?
