Beanie Gift Card Holder





Hi Everyone!

Have you missed me?!?!? I've missed you! I'm finally back in FL! We had a terrible trip down from NY--delayed flights because of the storm through Atlanta and my luggage got soaking wet which meant that most of the contents got wet too. Most of my clothes were soggy and dirty. And, three packs of paper were ruined--12 x 12 SU Pumpkin Pie, SU Flowers for You DSP, and a 12 x 12 K & Co Christmas stack! The worst part is the loss of the DSP :(
On a happier note, my SU order arrived yesterday. I immediately had to play with the ornament stamp set and matching punch (like I have nothing to do in the house after being away for six months!).
So, how about this adorable Beanie Gift Card Holder?!?!? Carolina had the tutorial posted on her blog and I wanted to give it a try. I made the pom pom on the top of the beanie from two MS flower punches. The Ornament and 'Winter' are stamped in Tempting Turquoise. The beanie only look minutes to make and is so darn cute. I will definitely be making more of them. Next time I plan to emboss the beanies.
Thanks for stopping by and listening to my sad story! Now that I am back home I plan to be crafting and posting more often.
