Just a quick card I threw together before we head out for the weekend. I only got 5 cards finished while on my little retreat with relatives, that I have to now get some done as quick as I can. I love the little images from the Lily of the Valley nativity set. I used some scraps from another card.....added ribbon, punched edges, flowers and of course stickles. The little charm has been in my stash forever as well as the roses. I also used a precious crocheted flower that my Indiana buddy made for me. Thanks so much April.

Stocking Gift Card Holders

Well I did not get as much accomplished as I had hoped while on my little retreat but boy did we have fun. I did manage to get 5 cards done (will post later) and these card holder ornaments for my family. I usually give each person money or gift cards. I also try to make them each an ornament. The past few years I have combined the two and this is what they will find hanging on my tree come Christmas morning. I could not find a stocking die or one that I like on the cricut cartridges that I have, so opted to just hand cut everything. And I must add, since my niece was so kind to leave me a comment to remind me.....I did not cut them out by myself! My niece and my sister helped too! And I will also add, I greatly appreciated all the help! However, I did not appreciate making me laugh so I lost games! lol I did use an old quickutz die for the name tags. We did a few challenges while on the island and "buttons" was the one I fulfilled with these. A little fake fur, twine, a couple jingle bells and they are complete. Now to find the $$$ to fill them all! lol
