A gift for Christmas with Polkadoodles

Good morning folks, I hope you're all warm and safe in this awful weather. I've got a short day at work today with any luck so hopefully the weekend will start at lunch time for me yipppeeeee. This morning though we've got a new challenge starting at PolkaDoodles and we're making Christmas gifts. As always there's a fab prize for our lucky winner and my teamies have created some amazing projects so hop over to the challenge blog for all the deets.

I've made a pretty flower pin using printable canvas and one of the beautiful papers from Here Comes Christmas Cd, I loved the paper so much I printed some more off and used it to decorate a little gift box and a card. The image is also from the same cd, isn't she adorable? I've coloured her up with Graph'It Markers.

Here's a close up of the brooch: 

If you fancy making one, pop over and check out my tutorial on the Polkadoodles blog which will be posted in the morning.
