Totally Papercrafts #48 Thank You

Hello everyone... hope you've all had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It's our first challenge of 2011  at Totally Papercrafts and our host, Emma, has chosen the theme. Emma has decided to step down from the team to concentrate on her fab Crafty Emma's Store. We are really going to miss her, but we wish her well and, so this week's theme is, appropriately...

Thank You

You must need a 'thank you' card for great aunt Mable, (who gave you the forest fern talk set) or for cousin Clarence, (who mistakenly wrapped up and sent you his TV remote!!)   :-))  Or maybe the kids need some quick thankyou's to hand out to friends and rellies.  So, pop over to the challenge blog and join in.
I made this little set for my girls.

This week we are being sponsored by Pollycraft  and I have used a couple of Paula's cute images - 'Bridget thanks' and 'Flo, the simple things' - cropped down to fit my cards.  They are coloured with Copics and mounted onto card and My Mind's Eye, Quite Contrary DP. I added some ribbon and a bow, silver thank you stickers and some pearls.
I raided my used packaging box and found this clear box that once contained wine stoppers!! Don't  ask me why I bought wine stoppers... WHO has left over wine??? ;-))
I added a couple of tubes of sweets, covered in the DP - 'cos writing thankyous can be hungry work!

Do you like their little glitter flowers? I made them with glitter stickers. Aren't they fab? They are sticky on both sides, so one side you stick to your project and the other, can be covered in fine glitter. ( I used scrapbook shimmer ).  I got these from the lovely Emma as part of the Making Memories Craft Kit, available in her store  here.
