A Little Holiday Thank You

pbchriscritters Just thought I'd share a very simple Holiday Thank you Card.

The Stamp is from the Penny Black Christmas Critters clear set- so many cute images!.  The saying is from the Impression Obsession Sentiment I clear set.  I find this set so handy because I can create whatever sentiments I want.

 

The images are stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and I colored the kitty with Copic Markers.  I used E-50, E053 and E-55 for the cat's fur.  I added a little R-02 for the nose and cheeks.  The Leaves are YG-03 and YG-63.  The Berries are E-04.  I added a little shadow with W-1

 

 

Something else to share... 

 

mollyJeasusMy daughter M made this during free art time at her after K program (she is 5).  M is a certified "craftaholic".  I'm constantly cleaning up her craft shrapnel from all over the house.  I think she is very good for her age - she creates all kinds of projects all on her own (although I might be biased LOL).  But I thought this was especially cute.  She must have had the teacher write the words (she is not quite that neat yet).  Notice Baby Jesus has a teddy bear to cuddle.

Maybe you could leave her a nice comment - if you're so inclined.

By the way - if you want to see some awesome projects made with the new Basic Grey Wassail patterned papers - check out Michelle's Blog.  She is creating some beautiful stuff!

Lovely card, Cathy - but it doesn't quite hold a candle to Emily's craft. I adore her artwork and baby Jesus' teddy bear. Precious!

Such cute detail on the pictures she drew...and I love how she folded the paper to create the "swaddled in a blanket" look!

Thank you so much for your kind comments...I appreciate it very much! More Wassail to come! I'm amazed at how many fun cards I can get out of a little 6x6 pad! THanks for linking me!

Check out the complicated fold on Baby J! She has certainly inherited your talent, Cathy!

Dear M,

Your card is very pretty. I like the yellow color and the beautiful greens and reds that you picked for the decorations. Your card made me feel like Chrismas. Keep up the good work! Mary

Little Miss M, your baby Jesus is so sweet & adorable! I really like how you decorated His blanket. And, leaving Him a teddy bear was so thoughtful. You are very creative just like your Mother!

A beautiful card you made, and what a great talent your daughter has ... it must be in the genes !!! Very beautiful for a little girl of only 5 years. I think she must be very inspired by you. Great to have such creative children !!!

It's plain to see that talent runs in your family!

Great work M!
