Hoppy Holiday Treats!

Good Morning.   Just wondering if anyone else has started their Christmas shopping?  Me?  NOPE!  And my DH told be last night he expected HANDMADE cards to be sent out to his family this year!  I usually only share my handmade cards with other crafty friends.  But I guess that's about to change by proclamation of King Fred, teehee.  I hope you are further along than I am.

I hope one of these projects inspire you to get started if you haven't!

Hoppy Holidays Treat Box for challenges on the
Designed using Mistletoad by FCD.  Sold out right now, but Pamela says she is getting more in.  So keep checking back if you love this little guy.  Isn't this a cool image.  It looks like he's crawling up the treat box.  I couldn't help but add a little texture.  I used liquid applique on the hat band and Prisma Glitter on the fur ball at the tip of the hat.  I think the ribbon is American Crafts.  I've had it forever and was so happy to use it today!


Glory to the Newborn King designed for challenges posted at
This card was designed using one of FireCracker Designs by Pamela's new digis.  You can check out all of Pamela's Digi's HERE.  Just scroll down on that page to see the manger!  Combined with the sentiments from Christmas Phrases by FCD.  I used yummy Pearlescent Chocolate embossed with clear for sentiments.
I colored the digi with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.




Last Minute Gift Labels
You can make your own by stamping on these standard mailing labels by Avery.  OOPs, I just realized I didn't draw the lines to "hang" the ornaments.  This tiny bulb came with my Christmas Phrases set by FCD.

I started stamping 12 years ago and have been sending handmade cards for 12 years for all holidays and birthdays. I did buy some Christmas cards at Big Lots last Dec-Jan at 70,80 & 90% off. But I prefer to send my cards I make. I make 50 so I can sell some too. Been shopping all year, see a bargin or sale for friend or family member pick up-we keep a plastic box tucked in a corner for
such stuff. That way we don't end up forgetting where we put it all!
Your froggie box is sooo cute, LOVE IT!! As is the card and tags are sweet. Make alot of those too!
