Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are all enjoying the day! Today is my dad's birthday. After all of the hard times last month I am certainly extremely thankful to still have him today!!

On to a project...I found this great idea on Dawn's Blog the other day. You attach a sucker stick to the back of a tealight and make a pretend treat out of it. So cute and easy!

I made this little treat box the other night. I will end up filling it with little candies I think. It is made very quickly with the Big Shot and the Matchbox Die. The little puffs of frosting on the edges are covered in sparly fluff. It is soft and sparkly! :)

More Christmas

Here is another Christmas card. I used the same papers and layout as a Stampin' Up! only card from my other blog. This one uses a cute Our Craft Lounge stamp set called Tweet Winter Wishes instead. The snow underneath the bird feeder is covered in Sugar Sparkly Fluff. That stuff is so much fun!

Another OCL Sketch challenge card

Here is another card that I made for the OCL November Sketch challenge. I also made it for the birthday challenge that ended last night. One of the categories this one fits into is a color challenge of black, white and pink. I did cheat a bit and added orange for the snowman's nose. :) The little birds have Sparkly Fluff on their scarves and there is more Sparkly Fluff for the snow bellow Mr. Snowman. The snow in the background has chunky sparkles on it too.

Chocolate Gift

I am going cardmaking with some great friends this weekend and I wanted to make something fun for them. This is a Hershey bar wrapped in some snowflake paper and decorated. I hope they like them! :) But then who doesn't like chocolate? I stamped the fence first then masked the end of it to stamp the snowman. Then I colored it in and cut out around all of it and popped it up on the snowflake paper.
