Holiday gifts

I've been remiss in posting to my blog, but that doesn't mean I've not been creating.
I just finished a huge project for a very special friend and gave it to her this morning.  She was pleased and spent quite a long time looking over all the pieces in the project.
Now that is over I can begin sharing my other projects with you.
I am in an ornament swap in the local scrapbooking group, and I created these as my four to swap.  I've seen them demonstrated before, but I wanted them to be different so I added snowflakes and blingage.
I've also been cutting and sharing some of the 3-D files from SVG  The ladies in our scrapbooking group asked to learn to make 3-D items, so in the process of finding easy to recreate files, I came across the work of Mary and Leo at SVG Cuts. com.  The files are quick, easy and great when working with a group with varied skill levels.
They are so easy and fun, I decided to use one of the free files to make treat boxes for my co workers.
Aren't they cute!!!!  My co workers will find them on their desks tomorrow.  I'll add a bit of candy just to make them even more fun. Just in case anyone is interested, I made 9 of these little guys. Cutting them out took one evening (I surf while I cut and sometimes get distracted), and the construction took about 2 hours for all 9 of them.
Thanks so much for visiting and for your comments.
Enjoy creating and more importantly......Have fun!!!!
