Watercolour thank you card as showcased in Kylie's International Blog Highlight

I am taking part in Kylie's International Blog Highlight again today and the theme is Thank You!

Thank you cards are my favourite cards to make. Whilst I love social media for connecting with people and keeping in touch, it has changed the way we do things and less people these days send thank you notes and birthday cards. As a crafter I still love to make handmade cards instead of just leaving a note on a facebook wall, isn't it always nice to receive some happy mail?

Today's cards are being sent to demonstrators in the same group as me - the Pinkies! We are a fabulous group and we always help each other when we need it. If anyone is looking for a retired product - either for themselves or for their customers - we shout out and see if anyone has the product and someone almost always has what we are looking for.

I have 3 packages going out this week and the payments I received are re-invested back into new products. Therefore, I am thankful I could help my fellow demos, I am thankful their customers receive the product they absolutely had to have and I am very thankful that I can buy new products! It's smiles all round.

Please vote for me

It would make my day if you could take a minute to head over to Kylie's blog (click here) and vote for my card. All you need to do is click on the heart in the top right hand corner of the picture. My entry is number 20.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment to let me know if you liked my card. 

Don't forget you can also subscribe to receive a notification every time I update my blog. I am also currently building a newsletter subscriber list. I have a free tutorial that I will be sending out as in the next month or two.


  1. Beautiful! Can you tell how you did the background? Thanks.

    1. Hi Pam, thank you so much for your kind comments. I took a clear block and using my watercolour pen I picked up some ink and swished it around on the block and added lots of water. I then simply turned the block onto my cardstock. Kim x

  2. Love the background Kim, beautiful cards.

  3. Can't wait to try and make this beautiful card you created1

    1. Thanks Christine! It kind of happened by accident but then normally most of my cards do! So glad you are going to recreate it, I would love to see it when you've finished x
