Gale's Gallery XXVII: Merry Christmas 2016 Everyone!


It's Christmas Eve night and preparations are pretty much wrapped up here (pun intended!) I'm hoping you are ready for the holiday week and taking time to enjoy it.  In my area, we have a special New Year's Eve event--the Fiesta Bowl.  Not only am I happy for the Buckeyes, but since I don't like to go out that night, entertainment is coming to me!  Fingers crossed that we get to celebrate more than a new year!

Didn't bake a thing (or even get to visit any holiday sites,) but did a tiny bit of holiday paper crafting...

I did a couple versions of Christmas cards...Sentiment by #SimonSaysStamp.  The ornament dies , Woodgrain stamp and twine are from #HeroArts on Neenah Desert Storm and White 110# card stock.

This ornament is easy to make if you have nesting star dies.  Couldn't find heavier weight double-sided holiday cardstock in my stash.  Perhaps will find really cheap after Christmas! But you just line up the stars and sew down the middle...

Really easy favor, treat or tiny gift boxes with the die from Hero Arts #mymonthlyhero kit.  The floral is just printed cardstock, the red and white is red cardstock with white heat embossing and the bottom one is vellum with white heat embossing.  Stamps also from same kit.  These would work for any season!

Oh, here is a Thanksgiving one that I wanted to share:
White embossed leaves from Judikins on Tim Holtz #timholtz watercolor paper with Gansai Tambi watercolors, leaf die by Neat and Tangled  #neatandtangled, Grateful stamp #Heroarts
"The stockings were hung (and filled) by the chimney with care...

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!"

Wishing you and yours a safe and Happy Holiday Season!
