Holiday Blog Party!


For the party I created some quick gift card enclosures.  They are even small enough to hang on the tree! They didn't take very long to cut, stamp and assemble... the possiblities are endless with all the cutting files available from these talented ladies! Fun Fun!!!





Then I went on to decorating a candle.  I cut out various size snowflakes which I lightly stamped with Soft Sand ink, then tacked them onto the glass using a bit of Glossy Accents.  I'm quite happy with how it looks... and I might just have to keep this one for myself!



Be sure to check out Kerri's blog HERE and Lori's blog HERE.


Want to win a shopping spree?  Just leave me a comment on this post by 11:59pm CST. Wednesday, Dec 7th.  I will reveal the lucky random winner on Friday!  Good Luck!!! 

Thanks for stopping by...Enjoy!
