Here is a card I made the other day for my husband:
Here is a close up on the sentiment on the front, since it is hard to see..

And the inside:
Oops. I think it's a little crooked. :)

Stamps~Chair-ished, Papertrey Ink
Cardsock~Fine Linen, Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper~ October Afternoon, I think it's the Thrift Shop collection.
Other~ ribbon, Papertrey Ink; Ink, Walnut Stain Distress Ink; Large Scallop die, Papertrey Ink

And before I go, I also wanted to quickly share some gift bags I made for Christmas...

I made these for my Mother-in-law and Sister-in-law to hold part of their gifts. I bought the pre-made Kraft gift bags at Michael's, and decorated them with patterned paper from Echo Park, Cricut die cuts, the cardstock, ribbon, and tags were Papertrey Ink. I also added a little stickles to the fires. And I finally remembered to use the jingle bells I bought! I meant to put them all over my cards, cause I thought they were so cute when I saw them on cards, but kept forgetting!

And here is one last picture for today:
For our 4 nephews we went the easy and lame route, gift cards! So, I quickly cut these gift bags on my Cricut using some ancient patterned paper from my stash, in an attempt to add some excitement to the gift cards. But, they are all boys, so they would've been just as happy if I had just handed them the gift card! ;)

Well, that is all for today! I am now off to start another 4 day weekend! I only had to work 2 days this week! How nice is that! This is how it should be, I say! I hope to have lots to share next week after a long weekend in my craft room!

I wish you all a wonderful and safe New Years!

Your gift bags are so wonderful. I love the stockings on the chimney, very cute! I also love the card. That's my favorite sentiment from that stamp set, it's so sweet.

Hope you are having a wonderful New Year!
