Christmas Wishes hostess card features a gift tag in a pocket

This quick card uses the Santa image from the Holiday Catalog hostess set Christmas Wishes. I made a tag using Real Red and Old Olive ink pads, a circle punch and some taffeta ribbon and linen thread. This was one of the designs at Ginette's 10-card class Tuesday. I posted the first one yesterday.

The card has a 4-1/4" x 2" piece of Polka Dot Parade dsp layered on a scallop trim border punched strip of Real Red card stock. The adhesive is only on the sides and bottom of the patterned piece of paper.

We're closing in on Thanksgiving! Stampin' Up! will offer an Online Extravaganza with some 50% off specials and some 24-hour door busters. Be sure to check back here for details. If you've never ordered online before, visit my website at and set up an account so you'll be ready to take advantage of some terrific deals!

If you love embossing - but don't need a die-cutting machine - this adorable Sizzix Texture Boutique Embossing Machine may be what you're looking for! SU! has only 4,000 available in a test run. The machine works with our embossing folders. It's $29.95, which includes the embossing pads and one Mylar shim (item 132657). If you want a bundle that includes the above plus the Flower Garden and Stripes embossing folders, use Item 132700. The cost is $39.95.

Today I'm grateful I belong to the Poulsbo Lions Club and am able to support the community in which I live, as well as being a part of the International Lions Club which helps people all over the world get relief from everything from natural disasters (such as Super Storm Sandy) to diseases and more.
