A Little Christmas for my best friends

I have a group of 7 other ladies that I do sooooooooooo many things with.  We are such a close-knit group, and I love that we share in so much.

A few years back, we started attending a local wine festival together.  We now rent a condo and stay for 3-4 days and laugh so hard that we come home with sore abs.  I love these girls with all my heart...........Their friendship means the world to me.

I have been showing them my creations thus far, but this one is a secret, so shhhhhhhhhhhh!

So, as mentioned in a previous post, I have been interested in Copic markers.  When I placed my order with Oozaks (the fastest shipper in the west..........well, the East, but you get the picture), I also ordered my first Penny Black wood mounted stamp.  When I saw it, I knew who I would be using it for.

For this card, I used all Papertrey Ink products and really like my finished card.  I added some glitter on the hats and heat embossed the cheers.  I used PTI's Holiday Wishes stamp set on the inside and it really turned out perfectly.  I even used Suzanne Dean's tutorial for hair coloring to match each of my friends with a card that matches their hair color..........How anal is that?  ;-)

My "blondie"!

My "brunette!"
The inside.

Now that all of the girls have their cards........I can post for you to see!  It's so much fun surprising others with items you make personally for them.

Cute cards Stephanie - and I do the same thing with hair color when I make cards for my friends! I love your simple layout and the paper you chose to go with this image.

I love that each one got the hair color to match their own...that's not anal...that's just thoughtful ;) Sounds like a nice little group you have - friendships like that are hard to come by.

Customized cards are always so appreciated - I'm sure the same is true for your friends. Knowing how much you think of them is a gift itself.
