Just Add Ink #293 - Just add a Gift Card!

Doesn't that sentiment say it all!!! Ho Ho Ho - it's Christmas time!!!
These day's it hard to know what Christmas gift to buy....... so sometimes it's easier to get a gift card instead.

That's why the challenge at Just Add Ink of just add a gift card is perfect for this time of year.
I know I've made several gift card holders this year.

Today I've made a gift card holder from the Envelope Liner framelits.

I also made a matching card to go with the gift card holder.

This gift card (for a surf store) is going to a teenage boy so I thought the blue and white theme really suited!!

 Can't have a Christmas card without a bit of sparkle :)

I wish I'd come up with this gift card holder idea myself but I didn't.  Luckily for me Patty had an awesome and easy tutorial here.  I used the smallest envelope liner instead of the middle size like she'd used.

If you're stuck for ideas on what kind of gift card holder to make you'd better check out what the other Design Team members have created!!!

This is the last Just Add Ink challenge for 2015 so you'd better get your entry in here,

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my little blog over the year, I really appreciate all the comments too :)

Wishing you a safe and happy Christmas to you and your family.

Just Add Ink #292 - Inspiration photo

Oh my goodness where has this week gone!
I totally forgot it was Friday so my apologies for getting this post up late.

Just Add Ink have a very merry inspiration image for the challenge this week.
The colours really say Tiffany's to me..... wouldn't it be lovely to receive some for Christmas!!!! (wishful thinking!)

Anyway here is the card I created and obviously I was inspired by the colours, the Christmas trees and the sparkly bling!

I hope you can see the sparkle on my card a little bit better in this photo!!!

I'd really love to see how this image inspires you so please join us and link up your creation here!

If you need some extra inspiration go check out what the rest of the design team have created :)

I haven't started on my Christmas shopping yet.... oh dear I know I'm in loads of trouble.....
Oh well, I'll be more organised next year (I hope!)
