Challlenge Your Stash - Gift Card Holder

Hello again. This is my second post of the day. Playing catch up.

For November, our theme was to Make a Gift Card Holder. Our Hostess was Vicky Y. This was just right for me since both my SIL's are getting gift cards for Christmas and I like to have something cute to put them in. I was looking through my stash of supplies and came across this little lunch box tin. It originally contained candy. I think I got it years ago at the Target Dollor Spot. Luckily, the sides and handle were already plain red, so all I had to do was cover the sides and then around the middle of the tin.

Then I just used some paper embellishments I've had in my stash for a long time along with tying ribbons to the handle. All done!.  Just perfect size for a Gift Card.


JOY - Creative Card Chilcks

Hi my friends. Happy Sunday. Things are moving right along toward Christmas. The weather outside has been frightful! One day in the upper 70's and the next day freezing with SNOW! That's right, we actually had snow here in H Town on Friday. Of course it didn't last long, but it was crazy to see it. I don't like the cold weather much, so I'm hoping we don't have any more of the white stuff this Winter.

I'm running rather late for getting my card posted for the Creative Card Chicks challenge for November and I was even the hostess this month. With the illness I've been dealing with and trying to get school work done, it's been really busy. Only 1 more week in this semester and then a few weeks off till the next semester starts.





Materials Used:

  • Image - Stamplistic - Christmas Tree
  • Sentiment - Melissa Frances - Wooden Elements
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Real Read
  • Designer Papr - Stampin Up
  • Accessories - Stampin Up ribbon; bling, stars from my stash; Gel pen; Stickles
  • Copic Marker - Y15; E25
This was pretty easy except for cutting out the four layers for the tree. Each one is graduated smaller which gives it dimension.

Christmas Fairy - Creatalicious #128

Hi my friends and welcome to December!  Feels more like September here - lovely Indian Summer weather, but not for long. Cold air is on the way. So not ready for that.

Just to let you know that I am feeling somewhat better today, each day a little more. I am actually doing okay when I am standing on my feet doing things rather than sitting and irritating the firey nerve endings where I have the rash. It is finally clearing up after a week of torture. Not sure how long this part of it will last though. Some say the pain is slow to recede. I was actually able to go outside today and do a bit of "yard" clean up. I have a bunch of plastic store gallon pots that I had milkweed in last year for my butterflies that I was saving. Decided it was time to get rid of all that, so I dumped the dirt from a bunch of them into my flower bed. I'll return the pots to the nursery the next time I go. Yard looks so much better.

Well, on the business at hand. I do have a card to share with you today that I made for the Creatalicious Challenge #128. Our theme this fortnight is Anything Goes with the Optional of Flourishes. I did use a sparkley flourish on my card.
