Creative Moments - thanks!

Good morning, I'm running a little late but here's my DT make for this fortnight's challenge at Creative Moments. The optional theme this time is 'thanks/give thanks' and we have 4 great sponsors;- Angie's Digi stamps                      Rick St Dennis
                Melonheadz                                    Polkadoodles
  so plenty of chances to win a lovely prize !
I was given a lovely bundle of images from Melonheadz to play with, I chose the black/white version so I could choose my own colours. There are loads of these cute kid images in this bundle and  I chose  to use the three that reminded me most of my little granddaughters to make a batch of thank you cards to put in their Christmas stockings. I kept the design very simple, just changing the colours of DP to match the images, which are coloured with copics.  I was hoping to make some little boxes or folders to put them in but time ran out, something to be getting on with next week! I love that their Mums think it's important to encourage them to  thank people properly for the gifts they've received, it's too often forgotten these days!  
Thanks for visiting

Wow! Chris, you have been VERY BUSY! Your granddaughters will appreciate writing their thank you notes in these pretty note cards! I agree that it is very important, and not sure why people think it is acceptable to not be responsive to someone else's graciousness toward them! It's also nice that you reinforce their Mum's values like that. They need to know it's important from more than one adult! LOL Your coloring is beautifully done with wonderful shading, and the designs are very sweet with the spot of color peeking from behind the cards' shape from pretty border you created! Wonderful! hugs, de

These thank you cards are adorable and such a sweet way to encourage your granddaughters to send thank you notes! And, can I just add that you're one talented colorer.

How nice of you to join our Piglet-inspired thank you challenge over at Words 2 Craft By. We're so glad you've played along. :)

Hi Chris,
oh these are sovery super, and wonderfully designed as usual.
What a very fab idea.
My Grand Children are also encouraged to thank people for their presents, nd we always get a thank you note or card after Birthdays and Christmas.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
