Lot of Thanks

Happy New Year! I've been AWOL this past week to spend some time with my family. My boys were in from Boston, MA and Pensacola, FL and it's not very often that we have all the kids together. So I am kind of stingy with spending time doing other things when they are here. And this Christmas season I am especially thankful that the family was all together. So I am making lots of thank you cards to send out to family and friends.

This image is an Inkadinkado stamp that my son gave me for Christmas; something new. He also gave me a gift card to Michael's. I embossed the image with fine black embossing powder and then watercolored the image. I haven't watercolored in a long time. I inked the background in Bashful Blue. The green background is embossed with the Victorian embossing folder. The sentiment is a sticker. I am entering this card into these challenges:
Here's another thank you card I made:

The image is from Doodle Pantry called Tractor Sheep. The sentiment is a digital stamp but I forgot to write down where I got the freebie. I used the Spellbinders scalloped rectangles. I used an OWH sketch. I added some red Stickles to the heart. The arrow is added as an embellishment.  I am entering this card into these challenges:
it for tonight. I'll have another post soon. Hope your holidays were wonderful. I go back to work tomorrow. Bummer! But at least it's only a two-day week. I love those kind! Take care!

You sure do have family spread out and so happy to hear that you were all together for the holidays.! I love both your cards and it's been awhile since I heat embossed and water colored. The stamp and your coloring are both beautiful. Of course I love those darling ewe images from Doodle Pantry. Now my hat: thank you for sharing with us in the January Doodle Pantry Challenge.
