Lip balm anyone?

I love making gifts for christmas. I think it is just so much more special when it comes from the heart. This is a little lip balm holder I have been making recently, complete with leather thong legs.

Hello Noel.

This time of year just gets crazy in my house. There is always so much to do, so much to create and no time for anything like relaxation, or unfortunately blogging. But, I dropped in today to share a card I made recently using an easy woodgrain effect in the background. You simply swipe a burnt brown inkpad over some burnt brown cardstock, followed by some light swiping with a choc chip ink pad. Then run it through the Big Shot with the wood grain embossing folder. Thats it, easy peasy.
To finish the card I mounted some letters and a little holly. I love the texture in this card. Texture really sets a home made card apart from a shop bought. Don't you agree?
