Thank You

It is coming to that time of year again when we have to write thank you cards for any number of reasons, it could be for a wonderful present, for hosting the Christmas day lunch, or just for helping out at a busy and stressful time of year.

Since the challenge this month over at Get Funky is to create a thank you card I thought I would make a head start. I decided to use their Funky Freebie as the colours were so nice and bright and it made a nice change from Chirstmas colours.

Supplies Used:
Pale blue cardstock
Purple cardstock
Funky Hand - Funky Freebie
Pink Petticoat backing paper - Swirls & Curls
Ribbon - from my own stash

To create my ruffled ribbon, I sewed a long gathering stitch down the middle and pulled either ends of the thread to create my ruffle.

I am sure I will have a few more thank you cards to make over the next month so I will show you what else I have created.



  1. Gillian, this really is a beautiful Thank You card. You have used the Funky Freebie in a great way. Thanks for joining in with the Get Funky Challenge this month.
