Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas......

Since Elizabeth has received my package for the Christmas Swap (OHHHH Yessssss, we opened them tonight!!!!!!!!!) I thought I'd show you what I made for her.

OK are you ready? Here goes........

I am by no means a paper crafter or card maker, I've done a few basic ones before so I thought I would have a go at making my own for the swap.
And this little fella on the front I cut out of felt and hand stitched before sticking on. I also used these fab little fabric snowflakes that I picked up at the craft fair last week.

And of course it goes without saying that the main gift was a had to be :)

I used a lovely Japanese fabric with snowmen printed on it and a lovely green cotton inside to contrast with the red handle and used some festive coloured ribbon as a tie for closure.

Bless those little cute and colourful.

Then I decided along with the snowman for the card I would make a holly brooch, which could be used to adorn the bag or worn separate on a jacket or blouse.

Once they were all wrapped up I added this gift tag, that matches the card :) and to my delight I received a lovely email from Elizabeth this evening saying how much she loved her swap goodies (Oh I should also mention that I added a little box of Lindt chocolates!!! I know they're scrummy aren't they?).
And yes, I've opened my parcel from Elizabeth......but not I'm not going to tell you what it is, you will have to wait until tomorrow to find out as I'm doing a post all about it.
Have a lovely evening xx
