Early Christmas!

I have started getting ready for Christmas.
I really LOVE Christmas!!! 
I needed a really pretty container for a special Christmas gift,
so I decided to make one.

I used this really neat stamp from Bugaboo.
They have a whole collection of these fabulous Christmas stamps.
 They are just awesome!
I added some black satin ribbon, cream colored lace, and beautiful fabric roses.
And of course, a silver Santa charm.
I added some little crystal embellishments as well.
Everyone knows how I love crystals and glitter!

  2. I love that image and you've done such a fantastic job coloring it! And, WOW, what a great gift container...your recipient may think that's the present rather than what's inside.
