I’m a little later than I like to be sending out my Customer Thank You cards, but with my plumbing adventure and a family matter, it is what it is.
For the month of December, those customers that spent at least $50 received a thank you gift from me in addition to their card. I have a box of retired embellishments and ribbon that I hadn’t used yet, so they were sent an item out of the box.
My thank you card uses the Painted Poppies Suite again. Seriously, when you get this Suite, you will not be able to stop playing with all the goodies. Again I used the amazing pattern paper as my background. These florals are just the prettiest thing ever. It makes me long for warm Spring days. The flower and leaves are from the embellishment pack and watercolored using my ink pads and an aqua painter. I love using my aqua painter because it makes watercoloring super easy.
The ribbon comes in white and I used my Poppy Blends marker to color it. This is a great trick when you don’t want to buy ribbon in a bunch of different colors. You can buy just white or vanilla and then color it with our markers or ink pads. Plus you only need to color just the amount you’ll use for your project.
I promise I did buy some other things from the Occasions Catalog and will start sharing those projects soon. But, I do have one more Poppy card for Friday.
