One of my biggest challenges after Christmas is getting my thank you notes written when there are so many other holiday clean-up projects screaming for my attention! I have learned over the years that if I have the cards made and addressed, I can get them out is record time and not have to deal with the guilt of unacknowledged gifts hanging over my head for days on end!
So last night, I pulled out my crate of Kitchen Sink Stamps and went to work intent on having my thank yous ready to go!! Hope you like what I came up with!

I also needed two birthday cards this week (I put yours in the mail Saturday, Angela! Hope it arrives in time!) With green being my favorite color, I knew I wanted to try out the fabulous new Lily-of-the-Valley which is a part of A Year of Thanks II. I love how it turned out and will be making more of these!!
