We are having a secret santa swap for the next four days at work. I always do these things - I think they're so much fun (even though I always end up with stuff I'd never buy and don't really want). I love giving stuff, so that's where the fun comes in. Also, I love making stuff, so that adds a bit of fun to the whole thing as well. For our swap, we are to give a card, a food item, a gag gift, and a real gift. Don't ask what I'm doing for the gag gift...I don't even know the person I have!! Suggestions would be great here!

Today I sat down to make a card for my secret santee (that's what I'm calling the receiver of this and if you have a problem with it, go scratch!). Because I have such few chances to be crafty now, my brain has dried up. I ended up online searching for cute ideas to steal replicate. I ended up at Kristie's blog and this particular card.

I had to make some changes...including moving the bow because my sentiment went where she had none. Still - I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
