Christmas Countdown Calendar

Had a great time making this calendar. It is a cookie pan from the dollar tree. Spray painted red. And lots of embellishments. Got a grid template for the numbers and the base part. CCut out all the numbered squared and mounted on chipboard. Added a magnet on the back. After decorating all the numbers you just place them on the squares. When the day is over you can place the number on the back, (which is really the inside).
Used the cricut to cut out the black matt at the top. Add some ribbon and viola your done.

Christmas Card Time

Well I finally got started making some cards for Christmas. A dear friend of mine had a card class in a nearby town. I had to go. We made 25 cards. There was four of each design. It was great getting to play catch up with her. We haven't scrapbooked together in probably nine years. Wow it's strange how the time has flown by. And we both have grandbabies now!! It was fun making the cards and playing catch up on old times. Well enjoy and thanks for looking.

Snowman Soup??

Tried my hand at creating a cute gift. You put the ingredients in the jars for snowman soup in it.
Well I took the box apart and covered with paper and trimmed it and inked it. It was the hardest thing I have ever done.WHEW!!!
Well it turned out pretty good so far. I will fill the jars with peppermint, hershey's kisses, coco and marshmallows soon... I think I will just stick with filling the jars with goodies instead!!
Thanks for looking.
