Gift It! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I've finished all my commissioned card orders & can breathe a sigh of relief as all customers have been happy with them :)
I plan on carrying on making Christmas cards for a while to give myself a head start for next year, plus I have so many new Christmas stamps I want to use before I forget about them & they end up being overlooked for next years new images which is something I am terrible for doing.

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Gift It!
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

My fabulous teamies & I are featuring

Mama Elephant logo

 goodies on our cards this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we'd love to see them.

This week I have chosen to feature the Mama Elephant Gable Box Die set & these little boxes are just so cute! I have kept the decoration on these boxes very simple & stamped a present from Simon Says Stamp's Merry Trees in white pigment ink & a Ho Ho Ho sentiment from Simon's Winter Friends stamp set in black pigment ink. I also added vellum, a couple of Simon's Stitched Snowflakes, glitter, pearls & some Christmas Twine to finish.
I've created five little boxes as they are going to be filled with yummy Lindt chocolates & will be on our dinner table on Christmas Day for us to tuck into after lunch. I am purposefully not filling these until Christmas Eve as I know once I open the huge Lindt maxi ball to fill the boxes the chocolates will not survive until Christmas hahaha.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
 Crafting By Designs - here come the holidays, Creative Moments - anything goes, Inspiration Destination- anything goes, A Snowflakes Promise - Winter, Creates & Makes - anything goes, Holly Jolly Christmas - Christmas, Through The Craft Room Door - anything goes, Craft-Dee BowZ - anything goes, Crafting From The Heart - anything goes
