We’re into the full swing of the festive season now so I’m busy beyond belief! Apologies for my lack of posts recently!
Tonight I’m out for a few Christmas drinks with my work colleagues and as always there’s a secret Santa. This year we’ve decided to just buy any old gift and have a lucky dip rather than buying for someone specifically. Now I prefer to do the latter, but as some people ended up without gifts last year (due to the winter lurgy!) I guess this way everyone gets a guaranteed pressie!
So what a perfect opportunity to play with the secret Santa stamp out of PTI’s Stocking Prints! I think most of my colleagues will know that this gift is courtesy of me, but lucky for me I picked a nice gift. Don’t tell anyone, but it’s a scrummy cinnamon soap I picked up at market stall at Covent Garden last weekend! I normally like to buy something really silly but the I just know it’d be my luck for my boss to pick it and for me to be summoned to their office on Monday morning LOL!
I also decorated both the tissue paper and the ribbon using the sweet snowflakes from PTI’s Holiday Tree! I love, love, LOVE the effect of stamping onto ribbon – it takes a while but it’s totally worth it!
Stamps – Stocking Prints/Holiday Tree
Ink – Spring Rain
Card – Stampers’ Select White/Spring Rain
Accessories – Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Vintage Cream Satin Ribbon/Martha Stewart Border Punch
Now then, would it be totally wrong if I picked this present outta the tub for myself…? LOL!
Right then, I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! I’m off to start Christmas shopping – that’s right, START it! LOL!
P.S There’s still time to enter our current challenge – Oh Christmas Tree! Surely you’ve got a creation with a Christmas tree on it?! Especially those who attended Steph’s make and take! ;D
