52 Cards: Thank you cards

After a break over Christmas I finally managed to get some crafting done today and boy did it feel good! As a crafty New Years resolution I am having a go at the 52 card challenge this year in an attempt to actually use my stash and to get better at card making. The first prompt of the year asked use to use new stash we received as Christmas presents, the perfect prompt for me as I could use the papers Ian brought me for Christmas. I needed to make some thank you cards so on a wet and miserable morning I sat down and made these using papers from Glitz Designs. 
I brought the tags back in the summer when mum & I went to an antiques fair, trust us to find a stall selling something crafty lol! The doilies are from Dovecraft and the alphas are October Afternoon.

  1. I have no idea why you think you are bad at making cards, these are just lovely Jess. Love the heart punched out of the tag and the doilies and everything really!

  2. Oh these are so so pretty :)

    I'm hoping to take part in the challenge too this year. I'm not a confident card maker so I need that push.
