Secret santa gift

Last night at our team meeting we did Secret Santas. We all made a gift using mostly StampinUp products. The variety of gifts was amazing. Some very creative and talented ladies in our team.
This is the gift that I made. I had made one last year using last years dsp, so thought I'd make another using this years dsp Letters to Santa.
I have used the square duo die for the Big Shot and the large circle scallop punch in the centre and the Timeless Alphabet for the letters.

Later I will show the lovely gift I received

Also at our team meeting our make n take was something a little different. Not the usual card that we make. Instead Sonia showed us and then we had a turn to ice a Christmas cake ( muffin size ) using royal icing and then either embossing it in a folder to get a pattern on top. ( No you don't put the icing and folder through the big shot we used a rolling pin) or we could paint up a stocking from the stitched stocking set with food colouring and lightly stamp the icing. Great idea, thanks Sonia. Will have to try this technique at home.
Carolyn wowed us with her lovely Christmas decorations. Will endeavour to show some of these later.
A great night. Makes we want to get out to my room and get creating after seeing all the fabulous ideas.
