On the tenth, eleventh and twelfth days of Christmas ...

I finished work yesterday with a half day and have finally been able to log back into blogger to finish off the twelve days of Christmas ... on Christmas Day no less.  I better get a hurry on because as soon as my three  year old niece - Alexis - wakes up we're opening presents, and still got to get out of my pyjamas.

On the 10th day of Christmas Karin provided this beautifully wrapped gift and inside was this hand sewn fabric cone that can hold things.  One of the other girls was going to fill it up with candy canes - I think that's a good idea.  Look at the detail, tiny beads hand sewn on in swirls and Karin made 11 of these!

On the 11th day, Lucy ( sent this package and inside was a framed wall hanging with the centre cut out and a transparency image in the middle, so you can see straight through it ... beautifully done.

On the 12th and final day of the Art Sisters Yahoo Group 12 Days of Christmas Exchange we received a gift from Margaret and it's just so cute.  It's a hand sewn pocket for cards like loyalty cards and when you pull on the string it pops the cards out.  I think it's a brilliant idea and might even take all those store loyalty cards out of my wallet and hold them all in this cute little pocket.

I also received the gift I won on Tim Holtz blog this week and I was thrilled.  I got a set of his Visual Artistry clear stamps, which are gorgeous and two Pink Paisley Borderlines with a Christmas Theme.
