Christmas Gift

I needed a gift for a friend at work so quickly put together a little gift box for some hand cream.  I used some dark crimson card for the main part.

Vintage Santa gift box

The snowflake PP is from My Mind's Eye.  The vintage snowman is a clip art image that came on an email I got at work yesterday.  I copied and printed it onto card and cut out using a Spellbinders Fancy Label 8.  It made a lovely front for the gift bag.

Hopefully your Christmas planning is coming along.  I'm all done shopping, ham glazed (thanks to Mum), cake baked, shortbread made (again thanks to Mum) and tomorrow I'll make some Fruit mince tarts.    Dad is going to be making individual trifles on Monday and I'll get some fresh strawberries for dessert.

I'm watching an old 1988 movie ~ "Rain Man" I've never watched it all the way through.... great acting by Dustin Hoffman.

Wishing all my followers a very Merry Christmas
