Scarlet Calliope Merry Christmas

ScarletCalliope Giraffe 4

The Lovebug Creations Creative Team is starting Christmas celebrations a little bit early with a Secret Santa swap. Why wait for the 12 Days when we can start now?  We each created a hand made gift for our Secret Santa Partner and bought them some gifts from their wish list.  The best part is that the rules say that I’m allowed to show you what I made, but I can’t tell you who it’s for.  But, I’ll bet that everyone on the Creative Team will know who my Secret Santa swap partner is right away!

From what I’ve heard, my swap partner loves this animal and loves the color pink as well. I hope she’ll be really surprised, in a happy doing-the-clap-dance way, with these sparkling creations. The mommy giraffe wears a crown made from vintage rhinestone jewelry.

Her wreath is vintage too, found at an estate sale a while back. It had some red glitter on it that I covered up with my secret recipe vintage faux snow. (I had to match the color and texture of the original vintage snow on the wreath!) A dab here and there covered up the glitter perfectly!

These little cuties are wearing wreaths adorned with beautiful Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon bows in Princess Party Pink.

After I was done putting the finishing touches on, I looked at these two and decided I don’t want to part with them. But I must, and I hope that my Secret Santa swap partner loves them!  They’re all ready for a fancy Christmas party now!
