Shhh! Secret Santa!

Hey!

We're into the full swing of the festive season now so I'm busy beyond belief! Apologies for my lack of posts recently!

Tonight I'm out for a few Christmas drinks with my work colleagues and as always there's a secret Santa. This year we've decided to just buy any old gift and have a lucky dip rather than buying for someone specifically. Now I prefer to do the latter, but as some people ended up without gifts last year (due to the winter lurgy!) I guess this way everyone gets a guaranteed pressie!

So what a perfect opportunity to play with the secret Santa stamp out of PTI's Stocking Prints! I think most of my colleagues will know that this gift is courtesy of me, but lucky for me I picked a nice gift. Don't tell anyone, but it's a scrummy cinnamon soap I picked up at market stall at Covent Garden last weekend! I normally like to buy something really silly but the I just know it'd be my luck for my boss to pick it and for me to be summoned to their office on Monday morning LOL!
I also decorated both the tissue paper and the ribbon using the sweet snowflakes from PTI's Holiday Tree! I love, love, LOVE the effect of stamping onto ribbon - it takes a while but it's totally worth it!

Now then, would it be totally wrong if I picked this present outta the tub for myself...? LOL!

Right then, I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to start Christmas shopping - that's right, START it! LOL!

Oh, I wish I had seen your post before! I recked my brain thinking of Secret Santa presents this year and cinnamon and Christmas goes so perfectly together.
Cute tag, Aimes! I love the stamped ribbon, too :)
