Welcome to the Crafty Chics Blog, and the New Year’s Thank You Card Blog Hop! If you have come after visiting ScrappyCraftCorner, you’re in the right place. If you just stopped in and did not know about the Blog Hop and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning and join the fun.
This blog hop is intended to help you get ideas for Thank You Cards. In our house we have a rule . . . you can’t spend the money, use the gift card or play with the toy until the Thank You Card is written. This helps to motivate my children to write their Thank You’s sooner rather than later. There will be opportunities to win some blog candy and prizes along the way in this Blog Hop. Oh . . . and I will be featuring a different card each day of this Blog Hop, so be sure to check back so you see them all! (Here are direct links to Day Two and Day Three)
Now, on to the card . . . for this card I did something that I have not done for YEARS . . . used a stamp! Since discovered the world of the Cricut, the box with my stamps has gone untouched. My daughter helped to inspire this one . . . she wanted something with glitter paper and a snowman for a thank you card she had to write.
I stamped the image of the child with the snowman, and backed it on some teal glitter paper. I covered the entire card with some purple snowflake paper I had, and then added a little extra bling with some glittery snowflakes. The large snowflake is cut from the Graphically Speaking Cricut Cartridge.
The inside of the card says Thank You “snow” much!
And of course what fun would a Blog Hop be without a chance to win something! I will be giving away a $25 gift certificate to Custom Crops. You can use it for anything you want . . . paper, cartridges, embellishments . . . anything they sell!
For your chance to win, we are going to play a little game. Have you heard of the website CricutSearch.com? I worked with my family to create Cricut Search, and it allows you to type in a word and then it will show you all of the handbooks that image is found on. It even gives you a preview of the handbook page so that you can look at the image right away and know if it is what you are looking for.
