Kind of a simple one, but I like the way it looks like a pile of presents. I made the ho, ho, ho paper by stamping a Starving Artistamps sentiment over and over. If you have a stamp positioner, like a Stamp-a-ma-jig, it's easier and quicker to do than you might think. The little Santa hat is from the DoodleFactory Winter set, also available from Starving Artistamps. The other two printed papers are Basic Grey.
Oh yeah, and I have some birthday blog candy to offer, as well. I turned 50 on Thursday (ugh!), and I thought I'd have a little contest. Just leave a comment on this post telling me what's so great about being 50. And if you're feeling a little snarky because you're nowhere near 50 yet and feel the need to crack a joke, don't hold back, I can take it. Besides, my friends have been cracking wise for a couple of weeks now...I've probably already heard it all anyway. You have until 11:50 pm EST. I'll pick a random winner, and the prize will be a 50 foot assortment of ribbon from my personal stash. (Don't worry, Jacquie, I'm just making room for the pretties you sent me!)
eta: They say the mind is the first thing to go, LOL! I just realized that I never said which day I would draw the blog candy winner. You have until 11:50 pm EST tonight, November 25.
