The After Christmas Christmas Card of Thanks

I'm not going to say that I always get around to making the After Christmas Christmas Thank you Cards, BUT, sometimes in the madness of making the initial cards, I'll make a couple here and there. 
Here is one I've made for someone special to say thank you again. 
I have used the terrific template from The Cutting Cafe called Christmas Pockets, there are 6 designs in this set and it worked perfectly to hold the little thank you tag.
This is for the linky party that is now open at Make It Monday and using the super cute image from our sponsor, Meljen's Designs, I've added a little Cheery Lights Mailbox and an added the cutest free sentiment circle from Annette that you can find here.  
Please join us for some friendly fun and sharing and you'll be in the winning for our prize from Meljen's Designs.
Hugs n' Happy stamping,
Lisa xx

Now for the BEST part...

I really loved the monochromatic look of this card and the snowflakes that pop off the background and coordinate beautifully with the DP. But most of all, those adorable little reindeer nuzzling noses under the mistletoe. How cute to personalize with their names on it too!
Wonderful Christmas card Debbie and thank you so much for sharing this with us at Make It Monday!

Hi Lisa

Gorgeous tag and pocket! Meljen's images are so adorable and this little letterbox is no exception.

Sweet pick for your POTW, the monochromatic is a twist on the usual Christmas colours but definitely works for me.

First we need to make Christmas cards. Then we need tags for our gifts. Then we need cards to say thank you and also for wishing people a happy new year. For us crafting people, isn't it great we have so many occasions to make cards for:) Love the the design of the little pocket for your thank you tag, a great design!
