Sharing some treats I made.



  I finished wrapping caramels this morning before I headed to work so I could finish up the fun mugs I did for my daughters youth group leaders for Christmas this year.I am making a baked potato bar for them for dinner tonight so I wanted to have this done for them.
   I did a simple tag with spellbinders tag die and the stamp set that came with it.I added some holly leaves and a few dots of red glitter berry's and tied the tags on with some bakers twine and a red jungle bell. The mugs were a find I got a Michel's at the end of summer for .90 each. I added a hot coco mix and some candy canes as well as my homemade caramels.
    I hope you find some time to do a little something something for someone special this holiday season.
    Have a Blessed Christmas.

A simple tree some glitter a card is born

   
I have been playing with some nit quite done projects I had in my some day drawer. I like how this one turned out. Not a typical Christmas card. All of the stamps I used are Raisin Boat. I stamped the tree and snow flakes with brown ink and then I went over them with a glitter pen.I matted it in Red and then added some tiny birds from a border punch I have.I need something else so I stamped the Merry Christmas on the same kraft paper as my card base and matted it in the same red I used for the mat and birds. I also went over the words with glitter pen.
    I hope you like it and are getting all of your Holiday goodies done. The invasion of the snowmen is almost complete at my house. Next comes the tree and mantle.Oh some goodies with be baking in the background
   .We will end the day with our family tradition of going to our Capital in Madison WI to see the Christmas pageant and Tree and hear some beautiful Christmas music.
     Thanks for stopping I will be entering this over at Raisin Boats Christmas and Holiday Challenge

Winter Wonderland collage card


  I pulled out some some day projects to finish up from last year.This was a card I started with a collage technique with a vintage feel. I stamped the snowman and sled first and then the word wonderland with the brown ink and then I stamped the snowflakes with grey ink. I colored the scarf,carrot,pipe and sled with copic markers. I rounded the corners and sponged some red ink around the card to make the red scarf and sled pop. To make things sparkle a bit I added some glitter pen on the words,and snowman, as well as a few rhinestones on the snowflakes.I attached this to a bronze/gold metallic card stock.
 
   All of the stamps are from Raisin Boat #10182 Believe in Christmas and,  # 10225 Wonderland wishes.I used Momento ink.I am entering this card in 2 challenges.One is Raisin Boats Christmas and winter challenge and Mod squad challenge blog snowman challenge.
    Thank you for stopping and be sure to pop over to the 2 challenges to see what other fun projects people have made to inspire you.
