I recently had surgery and wanted to create some thank you cards to give to all those who were so thoughtful of me and my family while I was down. I also got a new embossing folder and these thank you stamps and wanted to use them. This is what I came up with. My stamp platform made making a bunch of these so easy! I love it!

I love Z-fold cards! So easy and I always love how they look . These turned out fun! Love the mix of traditional and non traditional Christmas colors.

I LOVE how this turned out. I still need to add some twine on my tag, but LOVE it. On the back I did a print and cut that says "From our house to yours" and then our names. I think these will look so cute on our neighbor gifts. So much fun! This was modified from a file from My Scrap Chick. Instead of a card, I just made a tag. So fun! I don't remember what stamp set my Merry and Bright came from, but it was a perfect fit on my tag!

What do you do after you have had surgery and you can't lift or do anything for a few weeks? Well, you make cards of course. I recently got some new embossing folders and was watching some youtube videos on different ways to use them and one of them was to ink them. Since I had never tried that, I gave it a try. I decided that using a brayer works better when your pattern is smaller and close together. When the pattern is farther apart, the brayer made marks in the white space. Still pretty, but a lesson none the less!

This cute little frog is a Marjorie Ann Designs file. Isn't she cute. I happened to have one lone frog left over from a layout I did on the fourth of July from pictures from a couple years ago. I had intended to put her on a card or something, but never did. While I was putting together this quick layout, I snagged her and put her on. I think she looks like she was meant to be here. There are so many cute designers out there and she is one of my favorites. Always such cute files. The flower was jut a basic shape I found somewhere but it looks cute on the top!
