A hand picked bunch of In My Garden thank you cards

I got a nice little bunch of thank you cards going on my production line yesterday using the In My Garden, level 1 hostess set. One of my new years resolution is to make a lot more duplicate cards. That way I'll have more ready for the craft fairs that JJ and I go along to and more sets to give as gifts to my hostesses.

I've already got this resolution underway by colouring 4 of each of these flowers. There's a full set here for you to see and I'll finish assembling the other 9 today.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Bold Brights (to fit flower), Whisper White

I also resolve to start making my christmas cards much earlier this year. It was last minute crafting for christmas this year because I'd sold all my cards at the craft fair - don't want to get caught out like that again.

Are you making any New Years resolutions?

Lush cards - I am so glad it wasn't just me that had to remake my christmas cards last minute as I too sold mine at Craft fairs!

I love these Sara, the bold colours with the black look really striking.

Yes I'm planning to make my Christmas cards as I go this year, making 78 in one go would have been impossible without the scrap kit!!
