Post Holiday Howdies

After all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I have a much needed break with a dear friend to look forward to in January!

Hello all my crafty friends.  It's Saturday and I have a quick and easy thank you note card for you today.  Post holidays howdies was conceived many many years ago by my dear friend Elaine.  She lives in the big city and travels down to the valley especially to touch base with each close friend here.  We've been doing this for years.  The past couple of times I have made a thank you card (since she never lets me pay for anything).  But first lets go over the lyrics...

*Little Sweet Peas 2012 from of course ScrappyDew
*Girlfriends Laughing Set from Art Impressions
*24"Silver Bullet Cutter
*Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL4) software
*ColorBox mirrored solids paper
*DCWV Basic Stack
*Recollections Paper from Michaels
*3M spray adhesive and lean ground beef box from Costco (this is my spray box)
*Needle nose tweezers made by Tweezerman

The original Little Sweet Peas file is to announce twins.  Well I wanted to use the file as a thank you card.  So (pun intended) I used the letter "P" instead of the baby faces.  I had bought a stamp set recently called Girlfriends Laughing Set.  It was perfect for the inside.  So here is what I came up with...
I used the melted perler beads on the card for peas.
In the pic, the peas are frozen.

Don't you just love this stamp.  It was colored with Spectrum Noir
Alcohol Markers.  The background is chalk.

The back is a stamp I got at Joann Fabric and Craft many years ago.
I sure hope that Elaine got a kick out of this.  It was a fun one to make.  I have a birthday card for my DIL to get done and then on to Valentines Day.  Thanks for stopping by!

Bright blessings for the coming week!  Jana
