It’s two days before Christmas and I’m just popping in with my first post of December! I have been creating Christmas cards and 3D projects but just haven’t had the time to photograph them and write up the coordinating blog posts. But when I saw the challenge at TGIF Challenges, I just had to enter..
While I really enjoy giving handmade/homemade gifts all year long, Christmas makes it just a little more fun. Recently, I’ve discovered a few stamp companies with simply adorable sets that I just had to have. And the one I used on this project has a special meaning for me….
I work in an Elementary School library, so this cute, bookish reindeer stole my heart. This set, called Fall Friends, is from a “new to me” stamp company called Hello Bluebird. I’ve purchased several other adorable sets from this company that I can’t wait to create with. This stamp was perfect to create tags for the homemade chocolate covered pretzels I gave to my co-workers at school. It would also be a sweet tag or bookmark for Book Club members.
I colored this cutie with copic markers. She’s layered on an oval and scalloped oval from SU Layering Oval framelits. I used some plaid patterned paper from my stash. I did stamp a message on the back, however, I forgot to photograph it.
My daughter, Emily and I had a good time making these pretzels last weekend and my grandson, Jack had a good time eating a few of the broken ones. Here he is surveying our progress!
Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a very Happy Holiday shared with those you love.
