Christmas Thanks

Knowing we'll be in the middle of a move while trying to enjoy the holiday season has had me think ahead for what I can do now to help make then a little smoother. One thing I thought was to get my Christmas Thank-you card done ahead of time. That way, the kids can write & get those off in the mail in good time. With being away from family again this year, I know it's important for my kids to remember to pause and give thanks to those that took the time to think about them and purchase something specifically just for them. It's so special to them to think that Grandma & Grandpa were thinking just of them when they searched for their gift. Makes me smile too!
How's your preparations coming along? It's nearly time.
Blessings to you & your family as you savor this celebration of Christ's birth.
For this card I used my new border punch (love it!) just under some Basic Grey DS paper. The little bee is colored with Copic Markers and I've used the Stampin' Up! "Family Phrases" - thank-you as the sentiment. I also stamped (in Versamark, hard to see in the photo) on the confetti tan cardstock to give a bit of texture to the top half of the card. A couple eyelets on the side & the card was complete.

These are adorable! Great idea to get the Christmas Thank you cards made before hand! I have some snowmaen stampped out somewhere for that... better start looking!

Thanks Tania, trying to stay ahead of the game in all the travels. The most difficult part will be finding them when I need them! LOL.
