a gift...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a fantastic week...poor Phils sniffles have turned into a full blown cold but he still trooped off to work this morning bless him...best not do too much waffling this morning as today is our Mo's Digital Pencil Dreamteams monthly blog hop and of course your chance to win one of two $5 store credits for Mo's Digital Pencil just for leaving comments....so if you arrived here from the fantastic
your on the right track...if not and you want to join in the hop pop on over to our KERTTU'S blog to start at the beginning


Kerttu's choice of theme this month was to make a card with a gift inside...hhhmmmmm well I thought and thought and finally came up with this contraption...its kinda a card but more a tube of card...its two sheets of card with a slight bow in them to make a hollow in the middle for the beautiful necklace gift in the middle...I chose the stunning Winter Window digi and used one of the images from one of my all time favourite sets, the Ragged Carolers, I love these beautiful three images dont you..I coloured them with distress inks and glittered the snow and ice...well its Christmas and you have to have a bit of glitter dont you...I also cut the windows out so you could see the necklace gift hanging


the stunning Christmas papers and sentiment tag are from the Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...gorgeously vintage and traditional arent they...I finished with a beautiful ribbon bow and a flower from my stash...the next stop on the hop is the fabulous
who is sure to have something fantastic to show you...enjoy the hop and dont forget to leave comments on our wonderful teams blogs...Im entering this for the Whimsy Stamps challenge, Divas By Design challenge and the Nutcrafters challenge too...whatever your up to today have a good one and enjoy the rest of the hop
