Thank You Secret Santa!

Back in the fall at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, Stacey Schafer (the creator) came up with a fun idea for the Curtain Call Crew to do a Secret Santa. I will tell you that one of the best parcels that was under the Christmas tree this year was my parcel from my Secret Santa and fellow Canadian  Barb Murphy. This endless box of goodies was chock full of yumminess.  Have a look...




I am getting ahead start on Christmas for next year starting with using stamps I from Jane's Doodles that were in the package. I used my Wink of Stella glitter brush on the pom pom and brim of the toque, I wish the camera would let you see how fun it looks, but no such luck with artificial lighting.

I used another stamps set to stamp on the muslin bag that was in the package. A new technique for me, love how it turned out. The jewel on the top of the tree was also in the parcel.

Now that Christmas is over some thank you notes need to go out so this one uses some more of the stamps, the grid paper cards,  a button and one of the sizes of vellum envelopes in the parcel.

Thank you so much Barb for the fabulous, bottomless package and thank you Stacey for coming up with such a fun thing to do!

You must have been a very good girl this year, Tracey! Such goodies in that box, including the enamel dots that I love but can't bring myself to use too often. I really love how your bag turned out ... a perfect wrapping for something special!

What a lovely and generous box of goodies you received, Tracey! And, I see you've wasted no time enjoying everything! Your first card is so charming with the adorable snow man and all those pretty flakes along the side, and your muslin bag is just beautiful! I love how you placed the flair on your 2nd card, and of course the color combo is amazing!

Thanks so much for sharing all of this beautiful 'eye candy' with us!
