Heartfelt Thanks

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. I had a crafting dream Christmas. My sister gave me a gift card for a craft store which was totally unexpected as we normally do not exchange gifts. Someone else gave me a border punch I had been eyeing along with a gift card for Michaels. I was given some construction paper and the Crayola Reversible construction paper cuts like a dream with a cutting machine. As if that was not enough I received a package from a craft blogger full of all kinds of craft goodies. She had asked for my address as she wanted to send me a set of stamps she had. I was so touched by her generosity.

Now I am busy making thank you cards. I have not spent all the money on the gift card from my sister but wanted to send her a card using what I had bought. So here is the card I made for her. I cut a scalloped circle out of the card base using a spellbinder die and then cut a larger circle to put on the front.Ribbon is gift wrapping ribbon that was in a bag of ribbon and laces I bought at a thrift store. I felt like the circle looked too plain and the ribbon really makes it pop I think. The circle is pop dotted on the front.
Stamp in a box of stamps at a yard sale for $3 for the box.
Hearts stamped on other side of circle. They are actually peeking through the window.

I hope you have been inspired by my card and the techniques I used. Do come back again because you never know what I may doing next. Wishing you a frugal crafting New Year!


  1. I am not seeing the thank you cards above just and exclamation mark.

    1. Thank you for alerting me to this problem it looks like the gremlins ate the pictures and alas I did not upload them to Photobucket. Will upload them as soon as I can again.

    2. O.K Just in case there are more gremlins ready to eat my pictures I uploaded them to Photobucket. Don't know why the gremlins decided to eat the photos from this post.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. :)
