Whiff of Joy Blog Hop - Card no. 86

Here comes Santa Claus,
Here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus Lane,
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
Pullin' on the reins.
Bells are ringin', children singin',
All is merry and bright.
So hang your stockings and say your prayers,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight...

Well, maybe Santa is not coming tonight, but soon ... I feel like almost too soon.... I am nowhere being done with all the "needed" and "required" preparations!!!

BUT WAIT...
there IS something fabulous happening today!
Whiff of Joy Christmas Blog Hop

I hope you're having fun and I can't wait to see who will win 30 ($40) for the WoJ Store. Yay!!!
Also, don't forget - 20% still going on.

Let's get started ...

If this is your first stop, please go back to Katharina's Blog and continue along the trail. If you came from Kylie's Blog ... you are at the right spot!
WELCOME!!!

Today I have a very special card(s) to share with y'all. I am a room mom for my daughter, who is in Kindergarten and we had a fabulous Winter Party yesterday ... all the kids had a lot of fun and oh!, all the goodies everyone brought were so yummy ... it was simply fabulous.
Anywhoo, I made these cards for my daughter's Kindergarten Teacher and her Teacher's Assistant. Both are absolutely wonderful and fantastic and I couldn't thank them enough.

I used Bazzill Basics CP (Witch's Hazel), My Mind's Eye DP (the Wonderful Winter Collection) and a beautiful paper doily sent to me all the way from Australia by THE super sweet Kylie. I chose super simple layout and "fancied it up" by Spellbinder's Labels No. 10. The gorgeous image is Angel Delivering the Christmas Tree colored with Copics, ProMarkers & ShinHan Markers. I sparkled the images with StarDust & XMas Red Stickles. I added three red rhinestones to the right corner and poinsettia flower to the opposite corner. I sewed an inside pocket for the gift card and added a sweet little label from the Season's Greetings (along with the die cut shape). The inside sentiment is printed on my printer using ITC Edwardian Script font.

ENJOY!!!

Hope you're having fun hoppin'!!! Thanks for stopping by ... your next stop should be Gio's Blog


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
