Christmas Thank-You

We spent Christmas at my parents', so when we arrived home we had a big box of presents from my mother-in-law. We physically got home at 2 in the morning, but we were so happy to see our sweet dogs after a week away that we stayed up and had a second Christmas! Several days later, I was organizing the recycling pile and decided to grab out the pretty wrapping she used to make her a thank-you card (I kept the beautiful tags & ribbon she used for next year!)

I was intrigued by the Recycling themes at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenges and Squiggle Stamps, so I made the backing and little presents by wrapping pieces of cardboard (actually from the packaging for my new Fiskars papercutter!)

Both the cute dog stamp & the holly border are from sets my Mom got free with her Quick Cards magazines.

Inspiration:
Squiggle Stamps: Recycle/Uprecycle

I added dotted borders to the front and inside with a Sakura gel pen.

Stamps: Dulcie Jackson and Adam Pescott for Quick Cards, Hero Arts
