Merry Christmas!

So, its Christmas's 11am....and I'm still sat on my sister's sofa in my PJs! Ha, ha! For once I've got Christmas Eve off work and I'm not running around making last minute purchases! There is no wrapping to be done...well maybe one of two pressies need a little attention...but on the whole I'm done! Last night I had a fab evening with my sister Lorna and her hubbie Jim, and my two friends Becca and Anika - we ate lots of really naughty food, drank bellinis and watched Elf (a wheeler sister tradition!). I'm now waiting for my boyfriend to pick me in the meantime I thought I'd share one of my last pressies that I made.....

......I can't tell you who this is for because she might click on and see it before she opens it and that would not be good! All I can say is this gift will result in a mini shopping spree.....

On the outside I have used some pretty Papermania paper, and a lovely new stamp I've bought. I've never been that good with stamps, but I've been practicing and I think I'm getting the hang of it. I've coloured the image and added some buttons to the outside as well. I love buttons at the moment, they are appearing on a lot of my cards. I love all the colours and different shapes they come in, and I think they give a fab new dimension to the cards.

When you open the card you find the actual this case a lovely £20 note....but you could put anything in the little pocket really. I've used the same plain papers from the front to make the pocket and added a little glamour with some black glitter glue (weird purchase I made one day, but I love it!).

This last minute make actually manages to fit in with the Secret Crafters Saturday they are asking for last minute gift projects! I love the varied designs from the DT, all so gorgeous....take a peek here:

Anyway, hopefully the lucky person who finds this under their tree will be very happy! 

I want to wish everyone who stops by my blog a very Happy Christmas wherever you are, I hope you have a 
wonderful time. Thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings and I hope you like my cards!
