Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Christmas Basket

Hi All :) Christmas month have started, decorations and preparations are on full swing in my house. In my Office we are playing Chris Mom Chris Child game. I hope most of you will be knowing this game and  for the few who doesn't know about this game here i go explaining about the rules. Names of all the persons willing to participate in this game will be shuffled and each one will be asked to pick one name from the lot. The name picked is Chris Child and the person who had picked it is her Chris mom.  One person(Chris Child) will get a task to do for each day without knowing who the other partner(Chris Mom) is. This will continue for a period of time at the end of which gifts are exchanged between Chris mom and Chris Child.

Here is a Christmas Basket which I made for my Chris Child. I need to get Candies to fill this basket before giving it to my Chris Child.

 I loved making this basket.

The two die cuts are from Forever Friends pack.

I have used square card stock , gold colour ribbon, pattern papers and the two die cuts are from forever friends pack.
