Christmas Thank You!

Hope you all are doing well and getting ready for fast approaching holiday season! It is so hard to believe it is already December and I have not done one bit of shopping! Wish I could get back to when I started in October and had my entire house decorated the weekend following Thanksgiving!
Like many of us, there are those people who you want to give a little "thank you" gift to during Christmas and this is what I have done using the Christmas Chalk and MidWinter stamp collections From Artistic Outpost.  My little collection will be linked to Frilly and Funkie for the "Gift Tags and Note Cards" challenge.
I was wanting to go with a black and white theme (minus the chalk) with pops of green and red. The images were simply stamped using clear embossing ink and then white embossing powder. After I framed the moose another black layer was edged with embossing ink and powder, because I just liked it that way. Very easy and simple, but a nice little touch to give a cash gift or gift card.
Thank you for stopping by today and you have plenty of time to join in AO's new December Anything Goes Challenge, so come on and get inky!

Fabulous cards, I love the chalk board look and the pop of color adds a wonderful lift. My fave would have to be your first one.

These look great my friend. They are perfect for note cards.

It has been chilly here. But I have been hearing it is chilly everywhere. So far I would say I could totally live here in the Pacific North West. But I would prefer to be closer to Portland. Closer to my daughter.

So are you guys making the move. We might be there someday with you..

Hugs~
