Simply Secret...Sssst ;o)

Hi sugar addicts, hope you all enjoyed the hop yesterday, for those of you who haven't had a chance to hop around you can find all the details in the post below. Remember, if you leave a comment on each of the DT's blogs you have a chance at winning the entire set!

For today I have used one of my fave images from the new release, Secret Santa. I think she's so adorable with her big eyes looking round furtively to check that no-one is watching while she adds her Secret Santa present to the pile under the office Christmas tree!

I have made a gift tag for your Sunday inspiration, I'm being rebellious this year and not going for the traditional Christmas colours, so thought I'd show that in my tag as well :D! It's made from acetate and I added roses and swirls to really make it "something different".

This is the back, thanks to the beautiful double-sided paper there was no need to cover that up, I've just added another tag-shape so a message can be added there.

Card Ingredients:

Stamp: Simply Sassy stamp "Secret Santa"
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock kraft; Maja Design design paper; acetate
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts roses; Zva Creative pearl swirls; string; charm; rub-on texts from Pebbles Inc. (front) and QuicKutz (back); Kars glitter glue
Tools: Circle cutter
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks)
C7, C5, C4, C3, C2, C1 (clothes, hair, eyes)
E07 (lips, red accents)

Right, I'm off to do some more crafting because the weather over here doesn't really allow for anything else today... Hope you have some crafty time too, have a great week!
