Derek




 Hello Everybody..Hope you are having a great week so far. I am actually getting things accomplished...Gotta love that feeling :)... I made a little something to put on my brothers gift. I am not a fan of doing masculine gifts of any sort especially homemade.!! I know I know that is not fair but I really struggle with them. I wanted to play along with The Play Date Cafe this week and the color challenge is to use Brown, Silver and Grey and I also wanted to play at JUGS cuz it is my favorite week. (Template Week) And  something just came to me and I love when that happens. I made this cute little sleigh from MTME... embellished and added this stocking gift holder from The Waltzing Mouse... embellished and Ta Da. Something homemade for my brother. and these pictures really don't do it justice..I have fine sliver thread that  have sewn on the sock patches..way to cute and I am super excited to give it to him :).. and he will be excited to get the gift card that is in the sock to !!!!I am also entering my project in some more challenges listed below...
