More thank yous (it's that time of year!)

Evening, all! How's your weekend going? Well, I hope! We have taken down the decorations - how bare the house looks now!

This week I have mostly been making thank you cards in blue:


and in pink:

I used a Woodware Clear Magic 'Huge Thanks' stamp on lots of leftover snippets, most of them Nitwits. Then I cut them all out, which took ages because I needed so many of them! Half are lighter colours, half are darker, and I glued them to get a shadow effect.

I was going to add punched flowers, but my Olde Manne suggested they look better without. I ended up making 11 of them and my goodness my hand ached when I'd finished the cutting-out! I now appreciate my dies and punches more than ever!

I hoped I'd make a big dent in my snippets collection, but it's scarcely noticeable!

Thanks for looking, guys, and I'll see you tomorrow for the first Dream Valley challenge of 2013!

love, Mags B x

PS Sorry about the faded pix again, I'm going to need a better camera!
PPS To give you an idea of the size of the stamp, these cards are all A5 folded in half, and the stamp just fits!
