I hope these make a nice birthday gift
My sister's birthday is Tuesday, I know - I am late getting this together. Having a birthday on the first can be hard on family as you get so busy with Thanksgiving and then preparing for Christmas that you forget to turn the calendar over and then it is too late.
You already know I am in the gift tag making mode so I figured why not. Barbie can always use gift tags. Notice the Joy and the Peace tags are made from the same exact piece of card stock and what a difference using different ink makes. The faithful Altoids tin came in vary handy. I love the poinsettia from The Gift of Love stamp set by CTMH. I used vineyard berry and ponderosa pine card stock to make the flowers. I thought they were very elegant looking. Maybe I did go a little overboard with the prisma glitter. I just can't help myself. The holly border around the tin has prisma glitter on the berries and they sure look GREEN, don't they? IRL they actually look gold. You are probably tired of seeing my stamp set called "The Season Defined" by CTMH, I just can't get enough of it.
My sister doesn't check my blog, in fact she probably doesn't even know that I have one so I don't think she will spy her birthday present before it gets to her in the mail.
Thanks for tuning in.
