Bizzy Becs December challenge

We have a great new challenge on Bizzy Becs, "Christmas" well the challenge is new to our dt, but we are all trying to get ahead with Christmas being around the corner, so make something fab for Christmas and come and play with us.

I made another project of Christmas gifts as that is what i seem to need the most of right now.  Today was the annual Christmas meal/ end of the year get together for a group that i belong to locally and i made this little ensemble to give to one of the girls, with crakcers for the nine ladies and little Tag/cards for each. Hope they enjoyed these as much as i enjoyed making them.
The lantern was filled with bath salts and bath foam, and a little hand soap and lastly on top of all that i added an electronic light that can be turned on and left in the lantern and hung on the Christmas tree.
I have used a few of the Christmas Magnolia stamps, two of the mini's that came with the last kit and Tilda on ornament.  The poinsettes were made with NS dual punch as is the branch and i added twinklets to all the edges of the flowers.

Bissy Becs store stocks the Magnolia's so if you are looking for any of these head over to the store to see whats in stock
