Christmas Thank You Card

The new Sunday challenge is live at The StudioThis week we challenge you to create a Thank You card. Ideally, it should be geared towards Christmas, but if you don't celebrate the holiday or have another pressing 'Thank You' to send, feel free to change it up!

My boys' winter concert was this past Thursday.  You can tell their mama is a dancer - while everyone else stood nice and tall as they sang, my kiddos couldn't help but bop around to the beat :).  Anyway, the show was fabulous.  I would have enjoyed it even more if it weren't for the parents in the audience who obviously had no concern for decorum, respect for the performers, or any clue as to what proper theater etiquette is.  The poor music teacher had to stop the show several times to ask the audience to be quiet.  I was stunned that it was necessary and so heartbroken for her!  I thanked her in person for her hard work, but I wanted to be sure that she received a thank you card, too.  So, I made this:

I used vintage sheet music from Scrap Rat that I colored with Twinkling H20's (watercolors infused with mica for sparkle).  The sticker sentiment is by SRM Stickers.  Once I finished the card, I knew it needed a matching envelope, so a mini banner with doodled string was created :).

I know we are very busy people this time of year, but let's not be too busy to say "thank you".  Even a simple card like mine will suffice.  Head on over to The Studio blog to see what the rest of the DT created - Rebekah's is awesome!  I'm off to create a few dozen baby shower invitations.  Oh, the joy of becoming an auntie!  Enjoy your day!
