It's THAT time of year!






Gift cards are SOOOO popular... Leave it to some clever


stampers to figure out how to decorate them! I have seen this idea all over the place at SCS... but this is the tutorial I followed... the directions were so easy to follow that I am giving credit the instructions that I used. I did this GCH (gift card holder) for a challenge over at Mothers and Daughters Creations. It was so much fun to make and my new Whiff of Joy Herb Snowman stamp fit PERFECTLY on the front! I was able to make the GCH in about 10 minutes... but then coloring my image and decorating it was what took the time!!! But getting lost in coloring and decorating is where I find my peace and my center... I get REALLY relaxed and zen-like. How lucky I am to have this wonderful outlet!




The picture does not show all of the FUN things I used! I used my new Twinkling h20's and SHIMMERZ!( Click on the Shimerz link to check out their sale on SHIMMERZ!) My friend Kisa is right... this stuff rocks! I also used liquid applique
and glitter pens. For the inside, I punched 3 Snowflakes and got out the trusty stickles, cu that's how I roll. Now go and make some of these! They are easy to do and they beat standing in the mall shaking your head figuring out what to get people... and this way...YOU GET TO STAMP!!! Have a good one... and stay away from the mauls... I mean MALLS!!!
