Here's the swap that I made using the new Butterfly Prints stamp set, co-ordinating punch and large grommet (the metal thing that the ribbon is poking out of). I've also used Bella Rose designer series paper both on the top and bottom part of the card (unfortunately my camera doesn't take too kindly to night time photography) and for the first time ever, I used the distressing tool around the message.

I made this gorgeous gift box at the Extravaganza earlier in the month with Rachael and Denise. Thanks ladies ~ I know that I'll be making some more in the not too distant future. There use to be a slice of chocolate brownie inside but that's long gone... (yum, yum in my tum).
We used the Spotlight on Christmas and Oval All stamp set and the Ski Slope Designer series paper. This paper and Oval All set won't be available after 30 November, so if you want to order one or both or you want to learn how to make this lovely gift box, contact me here.

This is a cute little stocking filler which takes minutes to make. You can't actually see the chocolate bar but it is tucked away inside the pouch. How long the chocolate stays there, is anyones guess....lol. The stamp set I used is Punch Pals rrp $66.95 for a set of 12 stamps, which I think is great value for money. I've coloured in the images with watercolour wonder crayons and a blender pen.

The card on the left was cased from Patrice Halliday-Larsen which was the swap I received at our last big team training. I think it's soooooo adorable and just love it! I'm sorry that I couldn't do the card justice and tried several times to use my brayer but got a disastrous result, so I resorted to Rudolph being mounted on Going Grey CS which gives a similar effect of Rudolph's nose glowing in the dark.
The middle card I created myself (which I think is amazing, that I have found the time to do so ~ admittedly, it was somewhere between midnight and 2am one night) although the layout is quite common. The Christmas tree is from the Snow Swirled stamp set ($53.95 for 6 stamps) and is stamped in silver and clear embossed. I've used a green Rhinestone Brad from the Circle Ice set ($23.95 for 84 brads) on top of the tree which is quite effective.

I can also organise Gift Certificates in a gorgeous Christmas themed gift holder, if that is more his style. I can make them out to any denomination, and they are valid for 6 months. You may have a crafty friend or two yourself, who would appreciate one!
Just contact me HERE if you'd like to make your gift-giving really easy. I can also organise to have their gift shipped straight to them if they don't live locally.
Or, if your birthday is coming up, why not tell that special someone in your life what you really want!
I'm in the middle of the birthday season at the moment. Between 15 October and 10 November I have 14 people either in my family or close friends to make cards for. Then, I have a bit of a break (a week) for another friend, then my oldest daughter Nicole turns sweet 16th birthday on 17th December. She shares her day with my SIL Lyn in Australia.
