Hello, Stampin' Friends!
I hope you've been keeping well; I had to take a bit of a break over the weekend, as all this papercrafting is taking it's toll on my hands. I have a bit of arthritis in my fingers and wrists, that likes to flare up when I've been working especially hard; so, I just slowed things down over the weekend, and gave my hands a bit of rest.
But today – I have more craft fair creations to share with you!! I feel so much better when I've been crafting 🙂
The Snowmen peppermint patties I worked on over the weekend; aren't they cute? It's amazing how you can change their 'attitude' by changing the shape of their mouth, or placing their carrot nose a different way! Snowmen and chocolate – two things that just speak 'winter' to me! lol
On either side of the snowmen are 2 different designs of Gift Card Holders. The ones on the left have a 'belly band' to hold it closed; the ones on the right are made to look like a present (can you see the 'bow' on the top?), and is held closed with a velcro dot.
Both of these are Christmas styles, but I will be making some 'generic' ones, that can be used for other occassions, such as birthdays. Gift Cards are very popular gifts, I find; especially for those people you find are 'hard to buy for' – you know, it seems like they have everything already?! I like to give gift cards for special outings – the things people don't think to give themselves regularly – maybe for the theatre, a concert, restaurant, or a spa day!
I hope you enjoy seeing what I've been working on – I'd love to hear your comments! Thanks for visiting my web site; I hope you'll come back again soon 🙂
