New Year's Thank You Card Blog Hop!


Good Morning and welcome to the New Year's Thank You Card Blog Hop! If you came from Martha's blog, then you are in the right spot.
If you just stopped in to visit my blog and would like to start at the beginning click here to head on over to Crafty Card Gallery.

This blog hop is intended to help you get ideas for  Thank You Cards.  It seems like I always need Thank You cards and I'm sure we all have a few to send right after the holiday season. There will be opportunities to win some blog candy or get ideas to help you with your New Year’s Resolutions!  So sit back, and enjoy the hop!

I have two cards to show you today!


I welded two scallopped rectagles from Sugar and Spice to create my card base.  The banner and font are from Birhday Bash.  The banner is cut at .85" and the font and .40".  I was so impressed with how well this font cut at such a small size.....I think it helps that the letters are pretty bold.  The little bird is from Create a Critter and is cut at 1.8"h.  I finished my card of with a Prima flower and some chip board hearts from my Stash. 

My second card is also made using Birthday Bash....I'm really starting to love this cartridge.


I cut this happy little elephant at 3" and used my Scrappy Moms Stamps Amusing Aminals set for the sentiment.  I cut the shape at the sentiment is stamped on from Lacy Labels and adhere it behind my polka dot mat so only the edge is showing.  It is embossed with the Swiss Dot folder.
To say "Thank You" for visiting my blog today, I  have a little Blog Candy!!!
I have a Cricut Cake Apron, like the one shown below. (Adult version)  I will ship this out with a few other surprise goodies!


Please leave a comment on this post (US shipping addresses only, please).  You don't have to become a follower but I would LOVE it if you did!

  63. Corri,

    What a treat! I was excited to see two cute thank you notes!!! :) I love how you incorporated so many different carts, too.

    What a great prize you're offering...I have been eyeing that cute apron forever (I missed it when it was at Cricut.com rewards; it doesn't help that I have an apron fetish-like to wear them when I craft! ;)

    Thank you so much for sharing and for the chance to win,
