GDT Creation For My Step-mom

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? A few weeks ago I had a lovely email from Sharon asking me if I would like to be Guest Designer for December & January over at
  Papertake Weekly...........well she didnt need ask me twice I am soooooooooo honoured to be guest designer for them wooooooooo hooooooooooo!!
Anyway the new challenge this week is..........
...........the lovely sponsors this week are LOTV.
I have designed & made something new for my step-mum as at christmas time we buy her a few small gifts to open on the day but then give her £100.........well what do you buy a woman who has everything more or less....... At least this way she can buy what she wants & likes ;0)
I have used 'Christmas Angel' by the uber talented Krista at Saturated Canary, I sooooooooo love this image & of course I added sparkles to her wings & baubles ;0)
This is a card & gift in one............

This is the inside, the gorgeous digi paper is from the lovely Inger Harding, its so pretty as soon as she released it I brought the whole lot, including the side panels & the tag on the front.
I added 2 corner dies, a reindeer, doilies & some lush lace.

These are the 2 panels either side & I'm going to put a keepsake poem in & some photo's. The corners are open so things can be slotted into them & keep them in place.

This is the pocket I made for the centre & here I can put the money.

It is kept closed by a velcro button.

I wanted the pocket to be expandable so I created a file-type pocket so I'm not restricted as much when putting things in.

All the flowers are from WOC, hubster treated me to a big box full last week bless him.

This is the other side of the tag which also came from the same paper digi set. The wooden snowflake I added some paint, glitter & a glitter pearl to the centre, its so sparkly.

I added 2 organza ribbons to keep it closed. The brackets are a Joy Crafts die which is
 'Middle Fleur-De-Lys' I lurve these dies!!! All the dies I've also inked with Walnut DI.

Ingredients used..............
'Christmas Angel' digi image - Saturated Canary
Digi papers by Inger Harding - SquiggleFly
Joy Crafts die
Marianne Creatables 'Corner' die - MCH
Stardust Stickles - MCH
Flowers - WOC
Marianne 'Holly' die - MCH
Marianne 'Reindeer' die

Pop on over to Papertake Weekly & see all the fabulous creations of the DT girls.

I really need to say a HUGE sorry for not coming round much but last week all I had was 5 presents eeeekkkkkkk, I have been saving though so the money was in the bank for christmas. So at the weekend I decided to get stuck in & when ever I get chance sit on the net & shop, shop shop!!!!!! Most of my crimbo shopping is done online, thank goodness lol. I have given myself a week to get all of christmas finished with just food shopping to do, so I have til this saturday. I'm doing well so far & I've got Natalie's completely finished & Jake's nearly finished, Payton's is half done :0)

December is so so hectic for everyone so please dont leave a comment if you dont have time I know how busy we all are & know how precious time is at the mo...........I do think we get robbed of hours more in december mind.......think we should get more than 24 hours each day......WE NEED IT!!!!!! lol.

Anyway thank you so much for stopping by & sorry for the long post lol. Will be round to see you as soon as humanly possible lol ;0)

Hi Vicky,
Wow, your Step mum will be over the moon with this card, what great ideas you have with the pocket too and OMW what fanatastic papers, I can see why you fell in love with them - all too scrumptious! We are sometimes so alike with the images we have, I have her sitting on my desk all coloured up right now looking at me - I love the reds and golds you've chosen for her. Amazing colouring as always :)
Good luck with the prezzies, I have just three now...I agree, we need more hours in December! Big Hugs, Teresa xxx
