Doodle Pantry - Thanks Snow Much

For a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law's mother, I made a set of thank you cards that she can use after Christmas.  I wanted to use the same image but a different layout for every card so that they weren't all exactly alike.  When I was done, I was very pleased with how the set turned out.  Of course, when she opened the gift on Christmas Eve she loved them - who doesn't like a hand-crafted gift?!

Do you have a favorite?  Mine is the one with the twine at the top - it's based on a Mojo Monday sketch!

If you love this Birdie character as much as I do, then be sure to play the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge this month (Jan. 1-Jan. 24) because you will get the new Workout Birdie set just for playing along!

Card Supplies:
sketches - Mojo Monday and Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps
image, sentiment & patterned paper - Doodle Pantry Snow Birdie set   ($2.75 for color and b/w image, 3 sentiments and 4 digi papers)
dies - Nestabilities oval and lacey oval
ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon (winter whites from December ribbon club)
twine - My Mind's Eye Lime Twist
bling and black cardstock- from my stash
