The countdown has begun

My daughter has started her countdown to Christmas. Of course she's only counting down because curiosity is getting the best of her now. She is dying to know what she is getting for Christmas. I even caught her trying to get into my closet to take a peek. LOL!

I am still working on packaging. I don't like wrapping things (it looks so messy when I do it) So gift bags are the way to go. This year I am really dressing them up with digis. If I had more time I might have even pulled out those long forgotten rubber stamps. That's a little too ambitious right now.

This week's Stretch N Bubbles image was a swirly Christmas tree. I put it on a gift bag. I really like these non-traditional colors.
