If you would like the individual files email me catlady709@comcast.net and I will send them to you.

    My all time fav gift would be my first Cricut, the Create. It led me to a whole new level of paper crafting and I have even made new friends through it. (I do have an Expression now though.)

It was tie with those 2 best years for sure!

  27. This is such a cute idea, thanks for sharing! I appreciate your time!
    My favorite Christmas gift of all time was from my baby sister when she was around 10 years old. She made me an Americana themed mini quilt to hang on the wall or put on the back of the couch. (she had help from my mom of course) But I always remember how excited she was to share her talent to me. I still have the quilt and love getting it out to display around the 4th.
    Thanks again for doing this blog hop for us!

  36. This project might not hold enough cards for us cardmakers, but would be a great gift for others :) Hmm.. favorite Christmas gift...a recent one that comes to mind is an engraved ornament my friend gave my husband and I for our first Christmas together. It holds a picture of us from that year.

  48. What a great idea!!! I love the look of it!! :) I think my favorite Christmas gift (so many to choose from) would have to be my camera. It's hard though, because my husband always surprises me!! ALWAYS!!! It seems like each year just gets better and better, especially with our little ones. Thanks for a chance! I've wanted to get some Tim Holtz product; I've heard wonderful things. Thanks again for the chance but mostly for sharing your talent and creativity!! :)
