The first thing I opened was this lovely Christmas tag that my friend, Marie at Lost Bird Studio sent me! Do you know her? Go visit this sweet talented gal! I admire her creations so much. I love this image of these little angels. Can you see the glitter too?
Thank you, dear Marie! Merry Christmas to you too!
The next was a package from sweet Sandy at Quill Cottage. You must go visit her too! She is such a gifted artist AND writer! You will love her and her blog.
If you've visited her before, you know that she recently had a giveaway and she giving these beautiful tags that she created just by using her scraps in her studio! Wow, huh?
I love all the textures and layers. Just beautiful.
This is the back of the tag. Don't you love embossed paper?
I had to take quite a few photos because I wanted you to be able to appreciate how beautiful this is.
Back of the gift tag.
She used this wallpaper for the gift wrapping. See the texture and embossing? Oh, I want this on my walls!!
When I opened this, I just about started to cry! It so, so beautiful!
She burnt the words, "Pocket Full of Dreams" in the wood.
There are pockets behind the front piece of the artwork.
So creative, isn't she?
Sandy used a piece of rusted barbed-wire for the branch that the birdie is sitting on. Isn't that wonderful?
