Thank You, workmates

Well, Sketch N Stash had a new sketch up and the DT were spotlighting Heather Ellis images - so I HAD TO SHOP! Oh, my... have I been under a rock?!? I love her images... Made up a bunch of monochrome thank you cards for my workmates (lovingly called "stocking stuffers"). I rummaged through my ribbon stash (these ginghams must be at least 5 years old:), did some cuttlebugging, die cutting, simple stickpin making, followed the sketch, lightly colored Heather's images and here ya go - thank you cards.

Happy New Year!
