Christmas gift wrap

Hellooo... wow, I feel like I have been on my blog a lot these last few weeks :) It is great! Since I went back to work in August I slowed right down craft wise so it is nice to get back into it a bit more. 

My project that I am sharing with you today is some wrapping I made for a gift for a friend. The gift was already wrapped in the store but I wanted to hide what it was and to personalise it a bit. The stamp is "Winter Night Background" from the Winter 2008 Magnolia collection.

It was so simple to make and so much fun to embellish with terrific Wild Orchid Crafts products.  

I would like to enter some challenges as well...
Paperplay - Christmas
Stamp with Fun - Sketch
Stampin for the Weekend - Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - For someone special

Well.. that is it from me today, and probably for a few days now as I am back at work tomorrow and Thursday. I do have one more thing up my sleeve to share before Christmas, so I will see you back here on Saturday!  Until then, have a wonderful week. I hope you are all organised with your food and gift shopping. ... not like me :o)

Hugs Kylie
