A Note of Thanks


I'm continuing to build up my stash of thank you notes so that my mum has a series of thank you notes she can choose from for her set.  I'm loving The Cutting Edge challenge.  It's really encouraging me to use my dies more often.  At first I thought I'd use the polaroid die I have, but went with the vented die from PaperSmooches to ground the floral dies.  I love the color combination of black, gray and SU Ruby Red.  

As I type this my two younger guys are playing Jenga.  Monopoly seems to be the game of choice this summer. What are your kids favorite games right now?  We're always looking for new games.

I love this die, it is really different and this colour combo really does work. No kids but there is a box game that Callum and I love that I think your kids would really enjoy as you get to sing, build things, do some drama etc...but I can't remember the name!! I will find it and email it when I do xx

Love your cool vented die, great card in the red and black! I remember the days of games Spongebob Life, Break the Bank and Scrabble were favourites! A couple weekends ago Brooklyn and friends had Twister out! Oh my the laughing!!

OH this is fabulous! What a wonderful color combination and I love the vented die! So cute! My kids went through a monopoly phase earlier this year, now they are playing different card games and my 14 year old son loves chess.,

Fabulous card, and I am glad you are using your die cuts more. I have been too busy to use much of anything lately, it seems. Our favorite game these days is called Telestrations. It is easy and fun, and we always end up laughing so hard it looks like we are crying. It is one of those games where the worse you are at it, the more fun it is. I am officially the worst (so the most fun)

Our favorite game at the moment is PicWits. In the same genre as Apples to Apples but we like even better!

On hols, so the internet isn't that great... Both this and the card before are so great in how all the fine elements are placed! Love the bold black BG on this one; the card is still so elegant; super! Hugs, Gerrina
