The first one was a Secret Santa Swap on the cricut message board. My person to secretly send to was Armywife25. Along with some store bought goodies off of her wishlist, I also sent her a little 5x7 countdown to Christms chalkboard:
Santa and his sleigh, as well as the letters, are cut out on the Cricut, the buttons and ribbon are from my stash, and I made the little felt stocking by hand, and used it to hold the chalk!
I also sent her this winter wreath that I made. When DeniseB. came down to my crop in October she was making a halloween one like this and it turned out soooo cute! My DIL, Jessica, and I decided then that we would have to try them for Christmas or winter! This one is actually a smaller version, because it would of taken a pretty big box to mail the bigger one! I also thought she might have more chances of a smaller place to hang one! The frame for it I got at JoAnn's, and then used blue tulle, tied onto the frame. Wish they would of had a lighter shade of blue, but this one worked! I made the snowman face freehand, and the snowflakes are cut from glittery paper using CheeryLynn Designs snowflake dies.
I also made a card for her. I used stamps from the Magnolia Christmas 2012 collection for it, and paper from my stash. Copic markers to color, as that is my 'crayon' of choice!
I hope Amanda enjoyed her stuff I made as well as the goodies I sent her to play with!
I also was in the Christmas Magnolia Swap, hosted by Scrappichic. (she is such a good swap hostess!) My partner this month was Evelyn and since it was an 'anything ' goes round, I chose to make her a winter frame.
Stop back by soon,and Happy Craftin!
