Long Time No Post--Auction Project

I know I've been out of the loop for a long while! School and life have just been so busy. Right now Brendan is home sick, so I've got some unexpected time on my hands to post. For the last few weeks, I've been working on a basket for our school's dinner auction. I'm donating a 10 card workshop for 5, plus a basket filled with all the supplies to make and store the cards.

The first five cards use CTMH's Aspen papers. I used "Christmas Story" stamps for these three. They are a lot of coloring, but I like the result.

I used Four Seasons, Holiday Trinkets, and Festive Thoughts stamps. Hard to tell in the picture, but there is glitter on all images.
For the next set of cards, I used Jingle Creative Basics papers and ribbons. The stamp sets were Holiday Trinkets, Ms. Holiday Cheer, and Peace on Earth (sentiments). I used Juniper ribbon, Sparkles, glitter, and Liquid Applique. The snowflake is a chipboard snowflake from CTMH's "Flurries" package. I covered it with glitter for a sparkly effect.
I used the same papers for the Card Tin, along with various ribbons and clear buttons. I cut the letters on my Cricut using "Opposites Attract."
Here's the finished basket. It was hard to get a good picture, but you get the idea. The fabric was some gorgeous glitter/snowflake tulle I found at Wal-Mart. In addition to the cards and tin, I included the stamps, inks, blocks and papers to make more cards, and a gift certificate for a card workshop. I hope it brings in some money for the school.
I've got some more pages and cards to share soon. I need to get them photographed.
