Little Gifts for Old friends

Hello friends.  I have been busy putting together some small gifts for four of my high school friends.  They are coming to lunch in December at my house and I wanted to give them each a few little handmade items.

The last time we met at a restaurant for lunch and I took them each six cards.  They loved them so much, I thought I would do it again.

I made a beautiful card from a picture I downloaded from the internet, it is Santa kneeling at the manger.  I have a small figurine that the hubs bought me years ago after I admired it in a jewelry store. The picture is copyrighted, so I can't show you, but it turned out so beautiful.

These are gift card/money holders.  The picture of Santa is a dear friend of our
who went to Santa School and came to our house for many Christmas Eve's when our
Grand Children were little.  It was so much fun to see their little faces when
he arrived and how they reacted with him.  It's a beautiful picture too.

These are gift tags.  Instead of putting a string on them, I have added a piece of Score Pal tape to
the back of each one so it can be stuck right on the package. They all open up and have a TO/FROM stamp inside.  I want to make a couple more for each of them and have tons of ideas running around in my head, but we will see how time goes.......never enough of it you know............

Just a quick post, thanks for having a peek and stopping by.  Until later........

Wow you have been busy, creating some very nice items. That is so nice that you and your friends still get together. Know what you mean about time. I don't think a 48 hour day would even help. Well enjoy this day.
