Here is my project that I made for the hop... This is a great neighbor gift to give that doesn't cost much to make and very easy to do... We are all about things being easy right???? So go to the shop at Designed 2 Delight and pick up this darling set. Get a whisk, candy, ribbon, ( I used tulle ) and a cello bag, print out the whisk and the candy cane wreath. Print out the saying " We "WHISK" you a Merry Christmas" I cut this out with a circle nestie...
I put the candy inside the whisk,( the photo was hard to capture this)...
Get out the markers color the images, cut them out and add your saying inside the candy cane wreath. Place the whisk on the side add a bit of bakers twine to tie them on the ribbon added to tie up the package and there you go. !!! NOTE!!! I spelled WHISK wrong so make sure you spell it right!!!!!

Here is a closeup of the tag...
I used some new paper from BasicGrey jovial collection. I loved the plaids and stripes and the bold colors of this paper... The tag is a digi and I thought it went well with the dog and the snowman loosing his head!!! I paper pierced around some of the edges punch out a snowflake border and some snow flakes and then added some red rindstones. I hope you will all go and see all the cute new digi's Faith has in the store. Lots of cute ones for Christmas.
Have a great night...

Today I have two cards to share... One is Kaela. She is available for free if you play along with the challenge every week at Designed2Delight. If not then she can be yours HERE at the shop. Faith has added lots of new things and they are DARLING!!! I hope you will pay her a visit...
I fell in Love with this Angel!!! She is so sweet and fun to color. I used paper from October Afternoon and some I had left over from last year. I think it was Basic Gray. I cut out felt and added it as a back ground for my image. I cut out my border with a die from Papertrey Ink and used nesties on the image and star. (works great to cut felt). My sentiment is from SU. A little twin and a cute button and there you are! Oh and I added lots of sparkle but as you know the camera is not friendly to capture it... I added a smile too!
My second card is a Thanks Giving card... This stamp was offered last week but I didn't get it done until today. You can still get this in the store.
I used some paper that I had in my stash...Cut the border from my punch by EKS. I used my Tria markers and then cut the image out. Used my Tim Holtz die for the top and a embossing folder for the embossing. The embellishment I made by adding some netting a small piece of tea dyed seam binding, a crochet flower with a little distress ink added,a cute button tied with some Martha Stewart bakers twin.
That's it for today and thanks for stopping by,
