Thank You

Happy Boxing Day plus 1. I really hate to think the Season is almost over. Smudge, the oldest Yorkie will hate to give up his Christmas couch. This bed sits on the window seat and Smudge guards the house form there. He is such a cutie.

I had such a great Christmas. I got all kinds of cardstock and DP and Prismacolored Markers. I am so happy. I went with the same markers used by Michelle Zindorf. I used her advice and I am so happy. I am certainly just learning but so far I am enjoying the learning. So in the language of a newbie to's my first try.
This is one of the Magnolia stamps I won from Bea the first of the week. I love this image since it works for the entire winter not just Christmas. I colored it with both the markers and the pencils from Prismacolors. I highlighted with an Inkessentials pen. The Thank You stamp and punch are from SU Curly Tags.
I used Chocolate paper to cut out the ornamental die (CB) and used the hinge on the top and a swirl on the bottom right.
I tried to decorate the inside of the card using the DP from DCWV Pets Stack and another piece of the Ornamental die.I am using this as a Christmas Thank You so I will be using a white pen for journalling. The second side is wider than the front so the DP shows on the front.
This final photo shows the remainder of the hinge and how I used a die cut to attach the ribbon the the back of the card.
Well how do you think I did with the markers? Comments are so wonderful to read and I thank all who take the time to comment.
Have a great shopping day. All the sales are on now so its off to get the wrapping paper and lots of goodies for next Christmas. This is when I get a lot of my 2009 Christmas Goodies.
