Thank You!

Hi, Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  We sure did!  Just a quiet small family gathering here with turkey and all the fixings.  I love all the leftovers.  And, today I'm making turkey cream vegetable soup...yum!

I'd like to share with you a card I made to thank Darlene, our team coordinator, from Dies R Us!  She sent all the designers this gorgeous die from Tutti Designs...so pretty!  So, I made this card and sent this to her.

For my card I started with a white card base and water colored the panel background with Tim Holtz distress inks.  The snowflakes were stamped, which are from Cat's Meow(no longer in business).  Sequins from Paper Sweeties and the die frame is from MFT.  The poinsettia flower is from Hero arts.

A couple of Christmas photos of 2016...

And, one of our sweet dog, Shadow...

Ok, well that's all for now.  Our New Year's Eve will be a quiet one here at home watching the OSU v. Clemson game!  Go Bucks!  Whatever you have planned please have fun and stay safe!  Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care!



  1. Merry Christmas, my sweet friend! I'm so happy you had a blessed and beautiful holiday... your pictures are lovely. :) It's so sweet of you to make a thank you card for Darlene to reciprocate her generosity! She will treasure this always. I love the elegance and whimsy, which dance so beautifully together! Thank you for the sweet inspiration, Maria! Have a beautiful day. :)

    Hugs and blessings,

  2. Pretty card, Maria! Love that thank you die.
