Full of Wonder and delight!

Hey there!  I hope you are staying warm or cool in your part of the woods.  We are freezing here in VA with temps in the 20's.  We had a light snow dusting Sunday evening which was pretty and awoke to it covering the ground but it melted by 11 AM on Monday.  A nice snow for me.  :-)
I have my Crafty Creations card for today.  This week was an inspirational photo found here.  I started using pink as the main color but somehow the green took over.  I used a darker pink to make it pop. 
I used OCC's sketch for this week which you can find here.   I combined it with a few more challenges from the Crazy Challenge #45  which was to use 3 pattern papers, Lexi's Creations is glitter and pearls, and Crafty Your Days Away is use your punches.

I participated in Georgie's Secret Santa Swap and this year she did the coolest thing!  She asked us to blog what we sent our partners and they have to visit every one's blog to find out whom their Secret Santa is.  Below are my pictures from the swap.
My  recipient loves Victoria Secret and rarely buys anything for herself there.  I opted to make this the main gift for her and included a gift card so she could go pick out something she likes. 
 I also included some lotions with yummy scents like gumdrop and lollipop.  These are thick body creams.  The "Bling In the Holidays" is a cozy to keep that drink warm (or cool) for the season.
I shared this Victorian themed card I made a while back on my blog.  Inside holds a Victoria Secret's discount card  which she can use with her gift card.  I sent her some candy which you can't see but it's wrapped up , chocolate mint candy canes, and a candy cane pen.  I hope she likes!  It was fun getting it together for her.  Wishing  a blessed holiday season to my Secret Santa partner!  

Finally I have my advent matchboxes to share.  I think I left off at 12 so
#13 comes from Angela with this Victorian inspired box.  Love the stick pin number and the pearl for the handle.

 My daughter loves this snowflake bracelet she made.   I do too because red is my favorite color and silver is my jewelry preference.  Much appreciation Angela!
#14 is by Angela
 another Victorian inspired box with an adorable "Noel" bottle cap magnet inside.  Isn't the tiny candy cane sweet?  Thank you!
#15 is a Saint Nick themed box with Dresden accents by Bonnie  Ohhh! 
 Inside she placed a small square felt ornament she hand stitched.  Lovely Bonnie!

Don't forget about my "give away" which you can find here.  Just leave a comment and I will draw a name after Christmas.  Thanks for stopping by!
