Holiday Thanks


I had lots of snippets left over that were too small for card panels, so I cut them into 1" squares and cut some in half lengthwise and some in half diagonally. I pieced them together to make a little patchwork quilt and turned it into a Christmas thank-you card. The sentiment is by SU! and I added a die-cut IO button to the center, threaded with narrow strips of matching green cardstock.

I'm sharing this with the Jingle Belles "thankful for the holidays" challenge.

I had plenty of leftover Christmas paper snippets so I made this card too...


This was one of my most favorite DSP's from SU! from years gone by, but none was wasted since I made these quilted thank-you cards. The sentiment is also by SU!

Thanks for stopping by and do have yourself a fantastic Friday and a good weekend as well!
