For Special People

These are some items that I have made for some special people, who are special to us. 

First up is this adorable little gift card holder that looks just like a package.  These are not only for Christmas but would make a fabulous gift card holder for a birthday, bridal or baby shower.   This can be found on Frenchie Stamps Blog

Open it up and inside is a place for a gift card!  Don't ya just love it?

Linking up Christmas Creations
anything goes
Inspiration photo 
(a Christmas tree reminds me of wrapped gifts)

 I needed for this one to be a little more gender neutral as this is made for my MIL's neighbor who watches out for her when we can't be there and mows her lawn.

embossing Christmas
Blue Christmas
lime green, royal blue, crystal blue red...
 (I hope my colors are close enough to qualify)
snowflakes or doilies.
I have used embossed snowflakes

 This is made for a special friend.  there is glitter in the circle and on the angel wings and halo. 
Ths is really pretty in real life.  The picture doesn't do it justice.

Make a Card and make it sparkle
Special Christmas Card
W is for White Christmas
Winged Things  (angel wings)
All creatures Great and Small.
Now I know this is not what you had in mind, but this is my interpretation.
God is Great....He came as a babe to bring Salvation to the world.  In the shadow of His
greatness we are small.  If this is not what you had in mind.  Just delete my entry.

These adorable little bag/boxes can be found on Frenchie Stamps Blog . 
These are so much fun and easy to make. 
When I get my candy made these will be filled with homemade goodies for those special friends.

Traditional colors for Christmas
# 49 Snowman
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
No Cards
# 69 Christmas
# 35 Snowman
# 161 Traditional Christmas colors
Christmas with a bow
Use a digi...I think this is from Delightful Sketches

 This is another bag-box that has a vintage feel.  I made it out of
kraft cardstock.  It is much more stunning in real life.
 Side view
 Inside the front  behind the Santa is a place for a gift card.  Sneaky huh?
Vintage Christmas
Something old  (vintage style or image)
Last minute Christmas
A Nordic Christmas
