So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Gift Card for A Merry Christmas

This is for the Outlines Challenge Week 27 -- make a gift card. (here is the website)

I absolutely LOVE their gift card stamps...they work so well and are easy to do and have a nice finished look! This is the first one I have made this year for Christmas gifts...they have several different designs and will fit any occasion! This one is I-927 Holiday Gift Card Holder. I also used Outlines C-1126 To a Healthy.. as the sentiment stamped on the outside.

I used green MFP cs  and Paper Studio I Believe dp. I was able to use the  corner of the dp paper on the inside as decorative background and just had to do a quick stamp of a sentiment and added a few bling...and it was done!

On the front I colored with Sakura glitter pens and Copics, added some Candi bling, 2 present brads and finished it off with Liquid Pearls and Viva Pen dots and added a bow! NOW I just need to go get the gift card to put in it!
