Sweet Treats for a Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone!  Hope you had a very Merry Christmas.......I had a wonderful time in Virginia visiting Maria and Gary. 

First I want to show you some treat bags I made using the great Fawn Lawn stamp set Making Frosty Friends.  (Remember, I made a cute card with this stamp set, see it HERE). 

 They came out so cute and they were quick to make.  Just some coloring with Copics, some basic masking, and then just attached it to a decorative square die.

This is a close up of the snow people.

Now, for some fun stuff;  I want to show you some pictures from my trip.  On Christmas Eve, besides going to church, we went to Mount Vernon, George Washington's  Estate, Museum and Gardens.

Here's hoping you are enjoying this time with family and friends.
Stay warm, be safe and have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Cute Christmas House

I came across so many cute "house" cards this year!  And Kittie Caracciolo has made some fabulous ones.  Check out her blog HERE.  I loved all of her "house" cards, but especially the red plaid Christmas house one.  I basically copied the design because it was sooooo cute!

The door, window and fence dies are from Impression Obsession.  Kittie also used the I/O scalloped border die; I instead used a Nellie's Multi frame die.  I know that many of you already have this older die and can use it here.  It is always nice to be able to use your stash as opposed to always buying new ones.  In this economy we all need to get the best bang for our buck!

Hope you had a wonderful special day!
