Christmas cards I made this year - Christmas tree made out of the Stampin Up scallop punch. (as seen on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts, she has a wonderful site and walkthrough videos are great!) Also a penguin card I made with stickers and my new cute Sizzix texture Boutique machine. (So cute in the shape of a purse!!! :)

Click on pics for a closer look, its hard to see but I used the Sizzix to get the snowflake texture and swirls.  The penguin is a 3-D sticker.

And last but not least a few cards I made last year with my Cricut.

Little treats filled with Holiday Cheer

I love to spread cheer this time of year. There is one easy way to get a big smile out of someone - Chocolate! Who doesn't love it? Even if you don't, the pretty shiny wrappers they come in are enough to warm any heart. I feel this time of year were always pressed for time so I made these little gift bags for the gals I work with. They were quick, easy and fun! I used a package of Martha Stewart treat bags, painted metal embellishments on the ribbon, and stamped Happy Holidays along with 3-D holiday stickers on the inside back of bags. Add a little chocolate and you’re done!
