Hello Lovely Winnie& Walter Fans!!!

Happy Saturday!! Its my turn to be back on Winnie & Walter blog!
I'm so loving this fabulous Saturday feature as the Leading Lady...
Thank you Julie & Shay for making this possible!!!

Are you all ready for the holiday festivity yet???
I'm slowly getting there...I wish there were 48 hours in a day!
Holiday crafting is NO joke, its a serious process!

First we make holiday cards, then mail them, 
Next comes gift shopping and packaging,
I shared those ideas already...
now comes the preparation for after Christmas crafting.
Whats that?
As we all receive so many wonderful gifts and cards, after Christmas day its our turn to thank everybody for making the holiday special. 
Here are few Quick & Easy holiday Thank You card ideas...

I like my holiday thank you cards to be a little festive.
May be Christmasy colors or sparkly or few with few bells or stamped with holiday themed images.
 I used Scenery: Stripes stamp set to create my own plaid pattern, then diecut the word THANKS using In a Word: Thanks Cutaway

Its a fun pocket card...

The lovely bow is made with Take a Bow Cutaways.
For some fun texture I dry embossed the cardfront using Cover Model: The Leaf Effect Cutaway.
Love that we can use the die for dry embossing too!!

I also made a few postal friendly Thank You cards...

Love the small snowflake images in the Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs.
Super easy card...just stamped the snowflakes randomly with various inks and heat embossed a few using WOW Gold embossing powder.

Next comes the New Year cards...

Its great to send some Happy New Year cards too!!
I used my favorite True Multifaceted Star Cutaways for this card.
I created the background using the different star images from Comfort + Joy set.

The sentiment is from The Big ,the Bold, and the Happy stamp set.
For 2016 I used Doodlebug Designs Alpha stickers.

Hope you like these cards!!
