Thank you cards

Good morning!
8.10am here and my son is still not awake!!  He is usually awake by 7.30am but he isn't too well due to getting some back teeth so I guess he's sleeping in.  If I knew that, i'd still be in bed :p!

I started making Thank you cards for the presents we got at Christmas.  I don't think I need to make too many, 10-15 and i've made them all simple so it hasn't taken too long.  I've used stickles and coloured gems with promarkers so i've been waiting for them to dry which has taken it longer!
I've just taken a photo of the first 3 so far.  I've done about 6 and have another 4 to go and then i'll finish my new years card.

Photos are not too great,  I got bored trying to get a nice photo of them lol.  Stupid dark evenings!! 
I'm really happy with the way they have turned out, I can't remember the last time I didn't use an image on my cards and I tried new things, the shapes are cut with my silhouette and I used my sewing machine around the edges.
I'll take photos of the rest when they are finished.
I'd like to enter these into the following challenges
Papertake - Be thankful
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Thank you.

I love your snowflake shape. As you say a simple design but made so elegant by the different stitching and placement of the ribbon and sentiment.
