All wrapped up...

Hi everyone! I am busy today wrapping up the last of the gifts, making treat sacks for teachers, collecting all my recipes for a few party appetizers to make.....oh and dealing with my upset child who is dealing with a *mean girl*. Hopefully that will be resolved today because mama bear was at the Principal's office bright and early this morning!!

But on to the goodies for today. This is a fun little card and tag ensemble created with the Perfect Present Hanna Stamps set. The card could be given along with the two gift tags or the card could be given with a gift that has one of the tags attached. I think I'll be using this set a ton for birthday cards and tags, it's like nothing else out there. So cute! And check out the use of the Spellbinder's Dies....I used and embossed square and a scallop square for the card. And then for the tags, I triple layered two embossed squares and a scallop square. I just LOVE the polished look the embossing adds to my projects. Are the Spellbinder's Dies on your wish list this year for Christmas? I hope so!! For the card, I used Making Memories Noteworthy paper, and a Foofala button with patterned paper in the center (zoom in). My friend Cindy (StarLitStudio) uses this great idea to cut little strips to add to the center of buttons, love it! Images are colored wit Copic markers. Green Dew Drops from Ellen's store finish off the card. Twill tape from Martha Stewart.
Don't you just love the embossed layers??????????

Okay, back to the ol' grind. I'm having Christmas lunch at school with the girls...maybe I can sit by the mean girl!! LOL!

What a darling ensemble! I love the color combo and your embellishments are perfect for this! So sorry to hear that you are dealing with "mean girl" problems. We've been there before and it is so hard to see your DD go through such things!

Well, I know what I'll be buying with some of my Christmas money! Nestabilities - I've seen too many neat cards made with them!
