The ladies on the Design Team at Simon Says Stamp had a little gift exchange between us; the rules were that we should make a gift, and then add some crafty goodies to it. Today we're sharing our gifts.
I had Joy Taylor's name, and I decided to knit her a ruffled scarf in her favorite color to frame her sweet face. Joy lives in Australia, and it's summer there, so this little scarf will have to wait to be worn until it's a bit cooler.
Since she is on many design teams, I knew she probably has almost everything there is to have in the crafty category, but since we live half a world away, I thought I'd shop for her in our local stores here in Ohio, hoping that I'd find something she may not have access to there. I kept everything in the blue family for them also. Then, to give her a little taste of our Christmas here, I wrapped them all in a thin snowflake/music patterned scrapbook paper, tied them up with natural twine, and added various snowflakes and the die-cut "Joy" from Wplus9's Seasonal Sentiments to all of them.
And finally, I used the same patterned paper and a die-cut snowflake for the card I sent along with everything.
The card base was the medium color from Hero Arts Pool Layering Papers, and I also used some of the Wplus9's Christmas Pretty Patches stamps, and Hero Arts Splash chalk ink for stamping.
Okay, so it's Anything Goes week here at the Simon Says Stamp challenge. I hope you'll visit and see what everyone made each other, and then add something to our gallery this week!
