Countdown to Christmas

This was so fun to make, putting little surprises in each carton to create a Twelve Days of Christmas gift. Lisa B, thanks for the fabulous idea! These little pouches remind me of the sour cream packets you get at fast food places.
I can't get enough of this gorgeous striped ribbon from Stampin Up!
I made this card last year at Kathy's house and never posted it. It's going in the mail to my aunt and uncle today, so I'm capturing the memory so I can recreate it some day.
My December is starting off with a lot of paper crafting and I'm loving it. I hope you and your family are enjoying this special season as much as I am.

You make the world special

After making a couple of these cards, I added a scallop circle punch of chocolate chip cardstock and an image stamped from Wishing you the Best by SU in Cool Caribbean, popped up with Zots 3-D adhesive dots.
Yes, I have been making cards. No, I haven't been taking pictures and posting them. So here's one I just whipped up to prove that I'm still creating. The sentiment, "you make the world special just by being in it" is from the stamp set You Make Me Happy by Stampin' Up! and the polo button brads are by Making Memories. The designer paper is by The Angel Company and the ink is Garden Green by Stampin' Up! in case you're curious.
