I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know we did. We spend Thursday with Nick's family and Friday with mine and some friends we haven't seen in quite awhile. It was a nice relaxing holiday with no major It always seems there is some when you get a bunch of family members

Today it is time for another challenge over at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle. This week we are gearing up for Christmas so that is what we want to see. A Christmas card, layout or altered item!

I made a few of these gift card ornaments last year I believe with directions from an online crop I was participating in at the time. Sorry but I don't remember which one!

They are super simple. In the past I made them with just pattern paper but this time I used a chipboard base (from kits2remember) for the ornaments. The red one has a little pocket on the back right below the ornament top to hold a gift card and the blue one is on the front.
They were pretty simple and fast to make and I think a cute way to present a gift card.

supplies for red one: Making Memories charm and pp, Pebbles Inc ribbon, Hambly rubon, embrodery floss, Prima flowers, gems supplies for blue one: Reminisce pp, ric rac, snowflake die, button, stickles

This one also works for the challenge at Cupcake Crafts (make a gift card holder).

It is also time for a new challenge at Scrap and Stamp. Unfortunately I can't load my layout right now. I loaned my camera to my cousin who was going out of town since hers died. And I forgot to download the picture silly me! So I will post it in a few days. I hope you will still head over to Scrap and Stamp to see what the rest of the design team did and to see what the prize is this week. Whats the challenge you ask....well it is fall traditions with at least one stamp. We all have traditions we carry on with so we want to see them large and small!
