How many days 'til Christmas?

Saturday, October 27, 2007

Well exactly 60 days from today is Christmas! Wow - are you getting ready? I'm not! Some people think it strange that I don't really get into this holiday, because I celebrate all of them, but I just don't anymore. I respect the day for what it is, but I just dislike all of the commercialism about it. I like to give presents throughout the year, and don't like the feeling of being rushed to just find something to give someone because of the day. Not sure why, probably working in retail a few years ago around the Christmas holidays did it to me! At any rate, here are a couple more gift card holders. I do enjoy making these, and who doesn't love to receive gift cards!

Recipes: The Santa stamp is called Marshmallow Santa and it's from Stampabilities. The Joy and stars stamps are from the Christmas Sentiments collection from Rubber Stampede. The stamp on the back (Handmade for the holidays) is from Hero Arts. Also a small "J" stamp inside the tree. I used some black and some green solid cardstock scraps, and a small amount of burgundy that I faux stitced. The patterned paper is from Hobby Lobby and I also used a few gold staples.
