Christmas Cheer Blog Hop!

Hello friends and first time visitors! We are in the home stretch now...this will be my last post until after Christmas. In the meantime, you can find me baking away in the kitchen and enjoying some good fun family time. LOVE IT!

Paula and Momo asked me to participate in their Christmas Cheer Blog Hop and I of course said YES since I'm the holiday cheermeister! :) I decided to post a few of my Christmas projects that I've been working so hard on the past few weeks. All of my presents have homemade tags and are waiting under the tree:
This is one of my favorite tags. I used Peachy Keen Stamps Our Two Angels In Heaven set. I am really partial to this set, it's just so cute! I also used a Unity Stamp sentiment. I keep joking that I spent all this work making these tags and receivers will just throw them away, but in all seriousness, I am proud of my work and my homemade Christmas items and that's all that really matters to me :)
Next, I am giving a few gift cards to people. I wanted to of course create something cute to put them in. I was under a time crunch with these, so I needed fast and simple. Distressed edges on Kraft card stock, patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, ribbon, a Unity Stamp Co stamp and a little round sticker to seal it! This one is holding an iTunes gift card inside ;)
And last, but certainly not least, my card sets. I have been working on these for what seems like forever! I completed 10 sets total and it took me a while because I wanted to make each set with that person in mind. I love how they turned out and I hope my gift receivers love them too!
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and many wonderful blessings in 2011! Now...on with the hop, next stop is Gloria.
