Riley #3 - Sharing a cuppa love :)

Woohoo, onward to sneak peak #3!  What a fun-filled Riley-icious couple of days this has been introducing Riley and his new friend, Percy!  Just in case you are just joining the DT blogs, on Thanksgiving Day - the 24th - Riley and company will release the new Riley and Sophie Winter Wonderland stamps and a brand new stampie friend, Percy the Penguin!

For today's post, I have a super simple holiday gift card holder  - perfect for the number of "little" gift cards we'll all be handing out this holiday :)  I have had this template saved in my files since last year and it's perfect again!  I paired Hot Cocoa Riley with some holiday striped paper, paired it with holiday buttons and twine, and super simple - under 15 minutes of crafting!




A couple more days and we are at the home stretch of the Thanksgiving Hop!
You won't want to miss it!

Big hugs!
Bigger Blessings,
Kelly
