More Christmas goodies!

Hello! How is your week  going?   Hope it is going great!  Well, it is official! Today is the first day of the last month of this year!    25 short days til Christmas and 31 days til we ring in a new year!  Wooo Hooo for the new year!! :)  Until then, however, it is time for some holiday spirit!  Bring on the lights and tinsel and cookies!  Let's make some cards and bake some goodies!  Big grin!

This is a card I shamelessly CASED from Jackie Topas!  She is very talented!   She is quite good at crafting outside of the box and always has fun projects to share!  I thought this card was absolutely adorable!  She used the 2 step bird punch to create the fire.  I used the leaves for my garland rather than stamping it though.   Totally cute card!  Thank you for sharing, Jackie!  Here is my version:


Paper: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Whisper White, Soft Suede and So Saffron
Punches: 2 Step bird punch, Word Window
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red and So Saffron
Extras: Square Lattice EF, Real Red ribbon

  This was a triangular shaped gift that I made for each of my girls!  These were filled with chocolate and waiting for them when they arrived!  The Santa is made from all punches and the hat base is made from a 4" X 11" piece of card stock run through the Big shot.  The trim is made using the scallop border punch and adhered with sticky strip.  The whole thing is held together at the top with a strip of  Always Artichoke seam binding!  Too cute! :)


Santa:
Punches: Round Spiral, Word Window, Flower from 3 punch pack and hole punch
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Basic Black and Blush Blossom

Hat:
Paper: Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White
Extras: Always Artichoke Seam Binding, Petals-A-Plenty EF

These went together super fast and would make great stocking stuffers or little gifts for the mail man or Mr.Brown!  

Ok, we have a ton of errands to run so I have to scoot!  I will be back tomorrow with even more Christmas goodies to share! :)  Have a super day!
