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.

Merry & Bright

This is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.. Week 177....Christmas challenge of GOLD and PRESENTS! Here is their website

I used Ivory CS from GKD and the Recollections gold dp and Basic Grey presents dp on the inside.
The gold dp was cut out with Spellbinders lattice Rectangles. The image from Penny Black Holly-Jolly was embossed with Zing gold glitter and then colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens was diecut with the classic scalloped rectangles and then sponged with Encore gold ink. The sentiment from Penny Black Let It Snow was also embossed with gold and sponged with Ladybug Red Memento and Cottage Ivy Memento ink and die cut with Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio. Added some present brads, some gold ribbon and some gold pearls.

The inside is an image from Penny Black Holly-Jolly diecut with scalloped retangle and the sentiments from both Holly-Jolly and Let It Snow and both embossed with gold and sponged with Memento. Added some gold pearls and a ribbon and A Gift for You card is done and wishing you a holly-jolly Christmas!
