a note of thanks | Hello Bluebird

Hello and Happy Monday.  It's been an extremely busy several weeks and things are finally starting to 'slow down' for me, just in time for my boy to come home on Wednesday and then things will be busy again.  Yesterday I wanted to start my holiday thank you cards so I grabbed a bunch of different Hello Bluebird sets:

I managed to combine four stamp sets and one die set for this particular design.  I'm calling it my daytime version (more about that in a smidge). 

I combined:

Fall Buddies
Autumn Gatherings
Joyful Mouse
Frosty Friends

Birch Tree Die

The blue background panel is from Echo Park Paper's Celebrate Winter collection.  The sentiment is from Fall Buddies.

My design was inspired by CAS(E) this sketch!

I had been wanting to design a scenery with purple mountains and a black background, a night version. 

This one uses most of the same sets as above except I didn't use the Fall Buddies set.  Instead of the Birch Tree dies I used the Glacier Peaks die set.  The 'snow' is from the Hero Arts Confetti Bold Prints with Unicorn pigment ink.  A different color palette from before. 

Those images are just so cute, aren't they?!

I'm super behind on everything because of the three coffee hops (Fall | Winter,  National Cocoa Day + International Tea Day).    My last batch of holiday cards will go out on Wednesday, then I'll switch to New Years and holiday thank you's.
