3 Clovers Thursday Challenge 41--So Thankful...Make a Thank You card




What has more red than Christmas?

Well, Elmo of course! If you have been a follower of my blog for a while, you know my grandson, Cole,  loves Elmo. I decide to make these little 3 x 3 thank you cards so that little Cole can send them out as Thank You's after Christmas.(maybe even one to Gwamma...)

Last week Kerry of 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge wrote about a card she was making. It started with something she was determined to use and her card took a life of its own around her obsession to use a certain image, product or paper. Wellllll........ I was determined to use my mega nesties(just had to have them...used them once) to make little cards this time around. Many moons ago, before I started blogging, I always made duplicates of my cards, so I decided late last night I would make a little set of cards. I forgot how much fun it is to line them all up and appreciate the fun of it all! What is it with that anyway...anyone else like to line up their cards???...I know I'm weird LOL!

I did a quick bit of  copic coloring,  but tried more for the Penny Black watercolor look instead of blending. 

Okay back to this week's 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #41...Thank You cards. What an appropriate day to show our Thanks! I hope you enjoy what the team has made for you today and can take the time to go peek at their creations.......... and maybe make one of your own to share! If you upload to SCS please use 3CTC41 or share directly on the blog entry.

I better get running and get my pies made tonight! I want to thank you all for visiting my blog. Thank you to those who take a few extra minutes to  leave comments, it always means so much! Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Happy Thanksgiving! I ***LOVE*** that DP but haven't ever used it for anything other than Christmas cards. It looks so fun here on a child's card! Way to think creatively!

Ah Sue, these Elmo cards are so worthy of being lined up!! There's nothing better than Elmo afterall, and Cole will just love these as much as I do I'm sure!!
Happy Thanksgiving my friend :)

Aunt Susie,
I love the line up of cards! I have been trying to get some made for Mom for Christmas. I started weeks ago thinking that I would try to make one a day to get 20 done. Well, there are six so far....got to get cracking! Always love all that you make! Can't wait for the baking to start!
Love,
Melissa

Elmo has never looked finer. These are just the best and surely Gwamma will get one of these. What a thoughtful thing to do! And, please know you are not the only one who lines up cards -- me too! And, then I got to bed and wait for my dh to say Oh, and Ah in the a.m. over coffee. Hope you had a fab Thanksgiving.

Hi Sue! What cute little Elmo Thank-You's. That's such a cute idea. Line up cards?.....yep, love to do that! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.

Linda Beeson said...

Elmo is a favorite around here too so I can really appreciate the cuteness you have created here.

Lynnor Goodwin said...

How sweet of yo to offer to stamp some of the Elmo images for me! I know my granddaughter would love to see him on her Christmas card. Also think it's a very clever idea to make the little note cards for Cole to use as thank yous after Christmas! I would be thrilled to have you send me a couple stamped out Elmos. I can even send you the stamped and addressed envie if you would like. Thanks so much!

I'm going to try and make these as her birthday party invites.where can I get the Mega nesties, dimensionals? Any tips. first time at tackling such project. :)
