It was the perfect day to stay inside, drink some hot chocolate and crank out all of my staff gifts for work. I kept things simple this year since I have a million other things going on at work and home. Thus, gift cards for all! So, I had to find a great way to wrap them. Enter the gift card challenge that I worked with a few weeks ago in the Verve Release Challenge. I followed the same tutorial and whipped out 10 of these babies. Needless to say, I was VERY done when I finished, lol. I'm usually spent after one card!
I decided to make them all the same to expedite the mass production. I had a snowflake nestability that match the snowflakes on the dp perfectly and decided to make it the main focal image. I also added two strips of two sided tape and covered them with glitter for some sparkle. It feels good to have them done. I think I may take them to work on Monday just so I can check them off the list, lol.
Tomorrow I'm going to attempt to crank out the parent gifts... But I can't say what they are because I have a fellow stamping parent whom visits my blog (Hi, Lisa!). She's just going to have to wait until Thursday for the big reveal, lol.
I officially finished my Christmas shopping today as well. Boy does that feel good. I was beginning to stress over the fact that it is December 11th and I hadn't finished my shopping. I usually try to get as much done before Thanksgiving as possible. I hate shopping amongst the Christmas crowds. But it's done. And I really do love shopping for the Christmas gifts. I love picturing the recipients face when they open the gifts... It makes all the stress and shopping worth it. :)
Well, time to head back under a cozy blanket with some more hot chocolate and watch a movie with my roommate. The sound of the pouring rain in the background.... Does it get any better? Ok, ok. Snow falling, sitting under the cozy blanket with a book in front of the fire place tops it, but this is a good second place! ;)
