WOW…hasn't the past year just FLOWN by.  My husband and I were watching the ball drop in New York and read the 2013…remembering that it just seemed like it turned over to 2000 and people were SO worried about how their technology would react!


I wanted to show off one more project I did for the holidays.  I used Patty Bennett's idea of a gift card holder and my favorite holiday set, No Peeking, to make up several of these to "unwrap" at Christmas.  I had about 10 of them to make for family, my UPS carrier, mail carrier and my postmistress.  All of them see me frequently and are so kind!  This also fits the Late Night Stampers "Snowflake" challenge this week!


Also a reminder to get those last minute Holiday Mini orders in by tomorrow, January 2…the last day to order from that catalog!  Use my online ordering button in the upper left corner of my blog to place your order!


As you can see…I used this layout "theme" a lot throughout the holidays.  My cards, the gift certificate holders and now my gift cards.  I also used the Label Framelit with this snowman as tags on a few gifts.  For the gift cards for my family, I just tucked these into another wrapped box.  For the UPS driver and others, I placed in an envelope and then attached it as a tag to a bag of homemade Christmas Candy (also called white trash in my family)…mixture of Chex cereals, Cheerios, peanuts, pretzels and red/green M&Ms, covered in white chocolate.  I didn't get any pictures of those…I was in a hurry to distribute them since I was running SO late!  lol!



Well, enjoy the day!  I plan on watching some bowl games as I work on swaps for Leadership!  lol!
