Last minute Christmas makes...

If you are anything like me, you'll be running out of time about now...and realizing that all those great plans you made...are just not going to all happen in time...Fret are some quick ideas that you will have time for...and one of them even reduces the amount of washing up you'll have to do!! lol

This card can be made in about 10 minutes and is suitable for both a male or female relative. You could also change the message and make it suitable for pretty much any occassion too - you can't ask more than that, can you?

I've stamped and embossed a paisley design in black embossing powder 5 times onto the front of a silver card blank. I've embossed one of the chipboard blanks with silver sparkle embossing powder and mounted it over the middle motif. I've then attached one of the HOTP Word Fragments atop this with foam pads. Finally, I've tied black ribbon from the HOTP Classic Collection around the spine and with DSST across the two right-hand corners. Job Done!

My second project for today is these rather useful glass charms. They help guests {tipsy or otherwise...} to remember which glass is they are not always reaching for a clean one...and you get to do less washing up!!! Yay :)
Very simple to make, I've taken a selection of the Charms and attached each one to one of the HOTP Spiral Clips and tied this onto the stems of my glasses with some of the soft black ribbon from the HOTP Classic Collection. I think they look quite smart...and they even allow you to make a little comment on the personality of each person... For glass would be the Champagne charm...Mum's would be the watering can, FIL's would be the tractor...and OH's would be...

the saw!! lol
I hope you have a go at these projects, and would love to see what you create...
Remember to check in tomorrow for the new Challenge...there are prizes to be won...and prizes are almost as good as presents, right?
Bye for now...
