Christmas Thank-you

We were asked to make a Christmas Thank-you card for the i {heart} papers design team challenge. A brilliant, good and noble task. It's always appropriate to say thank-you. It's never in bad form when said with a heart that is in the right place.

I cased Life's Simple Pleasures by Laurie Schmidlin, and I'm saying thank-you for sharing so freely that amazing talent of yours!!!!

I have to be honest. When I saw this challenge I panicked because I'm never very good at the limited supply challenge on SCS and I didn't think I had any thank-you anything from IHP. So I dragged my drippy nose body downstairs and decided to clean up a little since my kids had helped themselves making Christmas cards for their Sunday School teachers while I spent the weekend in bed. I have no issues with this except they aren't the best with follow through - the clean-up thing. So I was poking around, panicking when I stumbled on this gorgeous stamp set from SEI called Windsor clear stamps. I darn near did a happy dance right then and there as soon as I saw those blessed words - 'thank you'!!!!

I used my 6x6 pad of Wassail from Basic Grey. I just love this paper!!! I'm going to need to find ways to use on non Christmas cards. There are enough papers that aren't uber Christmassy to make this a gorgeous, elegant paper line.

Additionally, I used Heidi Swapp snowflake ghost shapes, and self-adhesive pearls. Those are the specialty items here. Now, to wait to see what's coming our way so I can send this card after Christmas!!!
