A card and a treat

Can you beleive I actually made a card? My brother needed a card for a gift so I whipped this up quick for him. Everything is from CTMH and it's hard to see in the picture but the trees are super glittery irl.
I also made hot cocoa on a stick topped with homemade marshmallows and on some added some crushed peppermint and on some Christmas sprinkles. They make the most awesome creamy hot cocoa, just google it and you can find a recipe!

A little seasonal decor

I just love those projects that are virtually free don't you? My best friend just delivered me a silver frame from the dollar store that she could not use, so I had to put it to good use. I knew I wanted to add it to my Christmas decor in my dining room and I am in love with silhouettes right now so I borrowed my sweet friend Linda's(Hi Linda) A Child's Year Cricut cart and cut out this adorable winter scence out of black cardstock and just attached it to a piece if Colonial white cardstock that I stamped with my Universal backgrounds music note stamp from CTMH. I adore how it turned out and can't wait to make some more that will stay up year round! FREE=AWESOME don'tcha think?

Peppermint Bark popcorn

This stuff is amazing, so eat at your own risk it is addicting, popcorn, almond bark, peppermint extract and crushed candy canes equal=pure yumminess. I packaged up these little treat bags for my wonderful group of girls who come to my card classes every month. Last night was our last for this year so I thought we needed a treat. I just packaged up the popcorn tied it with some baker's twine and added a tag I cut out of the Cricut using the new CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge then I just stamped a small sentiment and that was it! We may of also had some cranberry walnut oatmeal and chocolate peppermint kiss cookies. It was a celebration of a whole year of being crafty!
