It's beginning to look like Christmas... with notecards and a DIY project

I am sorry I have been MIA... life has been crazy and I had to finish Christmas shopping, started baking (look for some posts coming about that too) and decorating.  You know the drill!  Blogging was on the backseat - but now I am back!  

Today I have an EASY thank you card!  Oh, and I didn't forget about 5 cards, one stamp set!  You will be seeing that again (maybe tonight if I get the pictures taken!).  I wanted to post the cards I made to send home today with any gifts I receive at school!  Super cute, simple and only took me 10 minutes to create!
 To make this you will literally need: stamps, ink and paper.  I created the border using two shades of green and the Dotty Angles Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I used the Pistachio Pudding for the lighter shade and then stamped the Wild Wasabi over top!
 I then stamped the single stamp Watercolor Thank You in Real Red ink - super simple right?  Wondering what I used to make these easy cards?  Our notecards!  They are pre-cut and perfect for quick thank you notes!  Plus you get 20 cards and 20 envelopes for only $5.95.
Wondering about my decoration?  I made this simple DIY project using salt, mini trees and pinecones.  I already had the big hurricane vase in my cabinet (you can use any big glass jar).  I filled it with pure table salt (50 cents each at Walmart).  Then I found the trees in Walmart by their little Christmas Village stuff.  The pinecones and mini cinnamon sticks came in a bag from Michaels.  This project cost me $7 but I have tons of pinecones and cinnamon sticks left over.

Come back tomorrow for another quick and easy stamping project and DIY bonus!
