Hanna Fans Blog Hop

Good evening! Here is my card for the first ever Hanna Fans Blog Hop! I actually made this card as part of a gift set that I will be giving a friend just before Thanksgiving. The card uses Chimney Riley and the image was stamped with Memento ink and then colored with Copic markers. I used  white Fun Flock on the Santa suit and Liquid Applique on Riley's beard. The snow is a combination of Liquid Applique and chunky glitter from Martha Stewart. All papers are from a Hobby Lobby paper pack, sentiment is from Studio G, and the button is Making Memories.
This is also part of the gift. It is an altered coffee tin that I covered in the same paper from Hobby Lobby, white card stock and plaid ribbon from Jo-Ann's. I used this adorable Elf Hanna that I colored with Copic Markers, a Spica pen and a silver gel pen. After coloring everything, I cut it out. I stamped the fireplace and drew in my floor directly on my scalloped oval and then added Hanna when I was ready to decorate the tin. My friend that is getting this has three small children and she loves to do different activities with them. On each piece of the rolled paper, I have written and activity for the family to do and there is one for each day from Thanksgiving until Christmas. Some examples of activities: make cookies, make a card to send to a service person, call or visit a relative that lives far away, and draw a picture to give a friend. 

Instead of sending everyone in this family an individual gift, I send family gifts. So in addition to the tin of activities, I will also send a box with supplies to do most of the activities. They are also game lovers so I will include a gift card to a toy store so that they can pick out a new game. I made the gift holder with the same paper pack and the image is done the with the same supplies as the card above.
