 off of your total purchase (No exclusions)

I used the Cricut Cartridges-Tablescapes-Spring & Summer, A Quilted Christmas, and Dr.Check-up for my projects today!  Check them out!

 Let''s start with Dr. Check-up. I thought this little girl would be just perfect to welcome you to my blog today!
The stamped sentiment- Hello Ladies- is from an Inkadinkado set-Good Together. My granddaughter is always saying "Hey Lady!" to me. I don't know where she gets that from... anyway, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder with circles to pick up the circles in her skirt. She was super easy to cut out and layer! I think she'll welcome you all to the blog hop today just fine! Doesn't she make you smile? I think this will be perfect to Thank a group, such as those in a day care setting, or maybe if you have a group of stylists, etc. or some other situation where maybe it's not feasible to do a card for each person. You know you're gonna miss someone! I used my copics to add some inking, eyes, and a little bling on her dress, along with a ribbon in her hair. The dress paper is from a Girl Scout stack.

Now let's talk about A Quilted Christmas and Tablescapes. I made a pillow box from Tablescapes. I think it'll be perfect to put a gift card in and/or maybe tuck in some of the great candy that is out for the holiday. I used a double-side cardstock to cut a 4 1/2 inch box. So easy.. fold, tape ( I used the Terrifically Tacky Tape) and tuck the ends in. I cut the Santa tag from A Quilted Christmas. He'd make a great tree or wreath ornament as well.. that's another project for another day..But here's the box:

With this quick and easy of an idea, why would you want naked gift cards? You could add the receipent's name on the hem of Santa's jacket or make ornaments and put your family's names on for a great personalized ornament. I had this HoHoHo ribbon in my stash so I was thrilled when I went to get some ribbon and found this tucked in my ribbon jar. Can't you just hear Santa now... Ho Ho Ho!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Here's to a wonderful crafty and creative holiday for you and yours.
