The last of the thank yous for now!

I think I'm caught up on thank you cards after this. Now I just need to remember to make them regularly through the year!

I love this image Audrey with Presents from The Stamping Boutique. She's so versatile. I colored her with Copics. The paper is all Basic Grey. I recycled a plastic container from beads and filled it with glitter and glued it on the front to make a shaker. It's the first time I've done something like this, but I like the way it turned out.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Crafty Creations #100 - sketch + colors + recycled element - Check this challenge out - they're having a celebration with a blog hop!
2. Cute Card #145 - thank you
3. Stamp Something - something with glitter
5. Allsorts Challenge #84 - thank you

I had to find a simple design to get several more thank you cards made fairly quickly. For these, I used the Sizzix Thank you embossing folder with cardstock. The other papers were left over from recent card making. I cut the shapes using a Nestibilities. Can you tell that I'm loving my new Big Shot? The little girl image is a mini from Your Next Stamp. The penguin is from studio g.

I'll leave you with these thoughts. There is lots of fun coming up at The Latte Lounge - challenges, a digi day, a present exchange and more! There is also lots of fun at the Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium Club Forum. I'm the Points Mistress - so get posting and participating in challenges so I have to stay busy. You can redeem the points for great discounts at the club.

Happy 2011 Crafting!
