Happy Insta Girls | Saint Nick and the White Elephant

Hello and welcome to the Happy Insta Girls blog hop, Saint Nick's Day edition! We have a special this month: not only do we sent a pretty card to a recipient, they also get a White Elephant card kit which must be used for the next hop. So this is kind of a naughty and nice game this time around ;)

Let's start with the nice part, shall we? Tanja was the recipient of my package. In the week our cards and kits were due, I received a small order from Studio Calico and just had to but this new Merry & Bright stamp set to good use. Hope Tanja liked the watercolored bear :)

 

Next up, is my White Elephant card kit for Tanja. She's quite lucky since I had to pack up my craft supplies two weeks before we decided on the blog hop theme and purged most of the really old and ugly stuff. So, basically my kit contains leftover SC card kit items I didn't get to use and some complimentary gifts from craft shops.

Now, here's the card I got in the mail from Christine. Isn't it so cute? As if she knew it, she picked turquoise for the main color, which is one of my favorites. Also, I never made or received a spinner card so this was a special treat in and of itself. Thank you, Christine!

Here's the White Elephant kit I received from Christine. I'll be honest and tell you the huge metal brads are a favorite. not ;) But I'm really happy with most of the content and think it will be fun to create with this for January blog hop!

One girl's craft trash is another girl's treasure, I guess ;) Anyway, let's all hop on to Tanja to see what she thinks of the package I got her // ETA: Tanja has some temporary issues with her blog and will update her post as soon as ever possible. Please visit her later today - thank you! 

I can't wait to see what everyone got. Happy Sunday and happy blog hopping, all!
