Secret Santa

My SS was Amanda Kennedy.
I received a questionnaire that Amanda has filled in.
On this Amanda said here favorite colours were pink and pastels and her dislikes was green.
As most of you know I struggle with pink and pastels and my favorite colour is green.
So I had to get out of my comfort zone.
Here's what I created for her.
 This is the Christmas Card that I made for her.
 I used Sahara Sand Textured, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla Card, with Letters to  Santa Quick Accents. 
The stampsets I used were Winter Post, Parlor Prints and Many Merry Messages.
This the Christmas Planner I made for her.
It was a tutorial from 'I heart the holidays' round of Ustamp with Dawn and Friends.
Melissa Huie was the designer.
 I used Pink Pirouette as the main colour accented with Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Letters to Santa Quick Accent.
There is 4 tags in the front pocket.
Gift list, the pocket on the other can be used for recipes or receipts etc.
 In the middle pocket are some tag so Amanda can make list.
Melissa had menu ideas on these.
More places for lists.
The back cover and more tags.
I enjoyed making this for Amanda, and I know she really liked it.
So going out of my comfort zone can be good.
I will now wish you all a very Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.
