Perfect Presentation Holiday Gift Ideas!

I have some exciting news!! Over the weekend I was asked to join the Design Team for Perfect Presentation! They have wonderful templates for a phenomenal value. They come in SVG, GSD and PDF. Today I used my Silhouette SD to cut out this adorable Winter Sleigh.

(You can click on all of the images to see the pictures larger.)

It came together so quickly and easily. I am in love with the shape of this sleigh!! I wanted to keep it simple so I just added a flourish that I cut out with my Silhouette. I spruced it up with some stickles and gave the skates some shine with some big chunky mica flakes.

I put some Hershey Kisses into a clear bag and tied it off with some ribbon and twine. Then I added a few mini jingle bells to the tag. All ready to be given to a friend, neighbor or teacher. It was so much fun making this sleigh that I can't wait to put together some more.

Check out what the rest of the Perfect Presentation DT made!

So Grateful

This Thanksgiving I decided to send a card to some of my friends. Just to let them know that I am grateful for them.

As I was making them I noticed that I was surrounded by a lot of cards. Many more than I thought I would be making.

I realized that I have a lot of dear friends that surround me. And how fortunate I am.
