Santa Gift Set

Hi there.. oh my gosh.. it took me just right now 30 minutes to edit those 3 pictures. We got a new printer on Thanksgiving Sale and since than my computer is running slow and i get constantly error messages. Aaaahhh.. where is my hubby ????? :-)
Gotta fix that :-)
This is the gift set i have made for my dear friend Christina C. Christina and i met on a yahoo group about half year back and we chatted a bit and we found out that we both come from the same small area.. just about 15 km apart. It was so funny.. than later we have met again at the Magnolia-lioucs yahoo group and i can tell you - Christina is one sweet and kind lady and iam happy i have met her. So the can is filled with some presents to open for her and Miska :-) (nooo i don't forget your baby Christina :-) and a matching card. I love the big Magnolia Santa image because it really covers a good amount of space on card or even projects. I love love one of the paper bags one of the Magnolia Designers made. You can see that one on the Inspiration site.. unfortunately i could not find out who that actually made. It is gorgeous!
The can does not show too well with white background but this way the ornamental stickers (Stampendous) show better on the picture. Love those.. but they were really difficult to get down. I don' t know if i would do that again.
and here the group shot.

I have started a blog featuring all the fab handmade gifts that crafters are making - http://helena-handmadegifts.blogspot.com/ - I would love to feature yours on it?

I f you would like your gifts to be featured I can either "Borrow" the images from your blog or you can send me on the jpegs!!!!

I will also link back to your blog.

Excuse the look of the blog at the moment, has only recently been set up, but will be making changes over the comming weeks! I will be updating this blog as many times as I can. It dosen't matter how many gifts you make, let me know and I will feature them, the more the merrier!!!

If you know of anyone else, either e-mail them and ask them to contact me or send me on the addresses and I will e-mail them!

I know when I was seraching for inspiration, there is so much out there and its so easy to forget where you saw them. So I thought I might set up a blog and feature them all in one place.

I don't get anything out of this, only the pure joy of seeing all the wonderful handmade gifts, not to mention the inspiration all in one place!
