Challenge Closes :

Midnight, Monday  31st December , 2012.
and if you are crafting on New Years Eve..... I'll have a drink for you!!

Here is my take on the challenge.....

Well talk about leaving it until the last minute.........  I've had such a busy two weeks that ALL CRAFTING was a distant memory!!
I had a little time to myself yesterday and although I did have so many other things that needed to be done, I treated myself to some time in my favourite room in the house!
As you know dies are my most fav GO TO crafting item!!!
My new MEMORY BOX DIE Tessatina was definitely going to feature in my card for today!
When I actually die cut the die, I loved the effect of some of the shapes left in, whilst some fell out and the card basically made itself after that!! (don't you just LOVE that!!!)
I'm giving the teenagers in my life CASH this year (it's all they want really)
 so I thought I'd make a a little pocket for the inside.

I like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy break.
Looking forward to visiting you in 2013 xxx

Thanks for popping by

I have put that die in and out of my cart so many times, I adore it... after seeing this though, I really think it needs to stay in my cart lol! Your gift card is perfect!

Julie H said...

Such a lovely card. Ways to incorporate pockets for giftcards/cash are always handy

spikeyjen said...

What a fabulous idea, some people are very hard to buy for and this is a lovely way to give money or a gift card.

Lovely card Angela

loulou said...

Great idea - I really like the look of the pieces of the die left in. Would save some time too not picking out the little bits when your trying to get a card together for the last mail before Christmas, lol. cheers Linda

Kerry said...

Your card is Beautiful.

JennyH said...

Great project, such a simple but fantastic idea for those hard-to-buy-for peoples. I also love the effect of leaving some of the bits in the die-cut : )
