May all your Christmases be White

5 more sleeps until Santa visits :)

Funny story about this card...... I made the "bauble' with the Ranger white enamel dots and they were PERFECT!!! I was jumping up and down and patting myself on the back at how AWESOME I was!! Then I placed my handiwork on the table to dry and accidentally put something over the top and it all stuck to it arggghhh I did it again, but this time I used pearls as well to give it some texture.
No Dramas all done and then once I had taken a pic, the bow was a little loose, so I grabbed my trusty glossy accents to adhere that sucker good!  I gave the top a little tug and the WHOLE bottle spilled over the top of the card...... just wasn't meant to be :)  Anyway head on over to Scrapbook Boutique to purchase all the product used and see instructions too.

A gift card is always appreciated :)

Hi there!  As usual, I am way behind with my Christmas gifts and I know that money or a gift card is always appreciated.  I decided to make a few gift card envelopes in anticipation of my "go to" presents!!  They are super easy to make and quick too!  I have gone with the cliche Santa's belt for this one but you could use a variety of colours and a circle punch with the recipient's initial (if you were making a few)  head on over to Scrapbook Boutique for the details on how to make and products used too!

I must be getting old because all I say on the first of every month, I say "Goodness, it's (insert month) already....hasn't this year gone fast!"  SERIOUSLY THOUGH so fast!!  I am going to start my December Daily today (again) and hopefully I will be able to finish it.  I did it last year.  I bought everything, binder, plastic folders, inserts, took photos, developed photos but just didn't put it all together (it is on my to do list).......
