Stampin' Celebration #62--Essential Thanks

Happy 2013!!  What a fun way to start the new year, with a new Stampin' Celebration challenge.  :-)   
This time of year I am always needing thank you notes. . . I have many vivid memories of my mom helping us write thank you notes after Christmas and birthdays.  Although I didn't like the tradition as a child, I see the importance now and am teaching my children to write thank you notes.  Do you find it 'old fashioned' to send thank you notes for presents? 
Anyway, you can see that I took the snowflake theme, the pink and blue and ran with that.  I figure my son will use the blue ones and my daughter will use the pink ones.  I used the Note Cards (finished size is 3 1/2" by 5") that come pre-scored 20 to a package, with envelopes, for $5.95.  I used by Snow Flurry die and Big Shot to cut out the snow flakes. 

After I cut out the snowflakes from the Silver Shimmer Paper, I sponged coordinating ink onto the snowflake.  Plenty of shimmer still shines through! 

There are a couple sneak peeks here from the Spring Catalog that goes live in just a couple days (Jan 3rd): the stamp set, called Essentials, and the Large Rhinestones.  Look at the pretty bling.  :-) 

Simple, huh?  :-)   We'd love to have you play along with us this month at Stampin' Celebration! You have until January 25th to link your creation (a card, 3D item, digital item, scrapbook layout, etc.) to the Stampin' Celebration blog and be in the running for the "Pick of the Party" at the end of the month. We can't wait to see what Stampin' Celebration inspires you to create!

Love these CAS thank yous! I, too, send out thank yous for our gifts and as my boys get older they are taking more responsibility for their own thank yous. It may be old fashioned but it's also good manners! I'm glad I'm not the only one who makes their kids write thank yous! I may have to CASE your design as I have a long list to get through! TFS!
