Gift It!

This week's challenge over at Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog is to "Gift It" us something that you are giving away.  This week's sponsor is Stamp and Create.  Well, mine is a card, but I have a good explanation.  When I was at my scrapping retreat a few weeks ago, I coloured/paper pieced this image.  When my friend saw it, she asked if she could have see, it looks like her little girl and their cat. I agreed that it did...and then told her that I would make her a Christmas card using the image.  Big deal, right?!?  Oh, big deal indeed!  I make these cards, but rarely do they actually make it into the hands of any recipients.  Up until just recently, I had piles and piles of cards sitting in boxes.  So, for a card to actually make it into the hands of the person it was intended for is a big deal!  She knows who she is...and it goes in the mail on I hope you like it my friend!
20 days until Christmas...are you ready?  Seriously, who is?

Gorgeous! That paper piecing looks so good and what a sweet image, sounds like this card is one that will be treasured!
I can believe you hoard all your beautiful cards! Get sending, they are too lovely to lie in a box in a dark cupboard!

Beautiful card, Danielle! Shhh, don't mention Christmas... I'm taking a 'head in the sand' approach! If I don't acknowledge it, it's not coming! lol

LOL, I'm the same way. I really become attached to my cards and find it hard to give them away. IF (and that's a big if) I do then it has to be to someone who will keep it and not throw it away!! LOL

Your friend is very lucky!! This is one gorgeous card. LOVE The paper piecing and that little kitty is colored perfectly!!!
