Handbag cards

Hello,
today I managed to find a little time to craft -
in between wrapping presents and writing more Christmas lists.
I am a serial list writer!!

I wanted to do something different from all the seasonal cards I have been making recently,
so I made a couple of handbag cards
with bits and pieces from a
Craftwork Cards goodybag and some
Blooms to Go and ribbon from
Poppicrafts.

Snowman Soup

This week's treat is Snowman Soup.
This is a cute idea that I have seen done in different ways on the net -
check out Angie Kennedy's Chic n' Scratch for Snowman Soup in jars,
complete with poem -
but this is my take on it.
I have filled icing bags with hot chocolate mix,
plain and milk choc chips and mini marshmallows.
Tied them up with ribbon
and taped a peppermint, candy, cane to the side of the cone.

Christmas Critters

Hi,
I managed to get all of my Christmas Cards
made a couple of weeks ago ~ for once I was ahead of the game.
Now I am writing them and getting them ready to post out.
Here's a couple I made earlier.. lol*

The stamps are Penny Black Critters.
These are the clear, unmounted stamps
and because you get about 12 stamps in a set, it makes them great value for money.
I used whispers pens to colour them and the messages are from CraftWork Cards

Create a card from the sketch and leave a comment on their blog and you could be in with a chance of winning some great blog candy.

This card uses one of the cute Forever Friends Stamps,

The little dots are Card Candy from

They stick on with small foam pads, and look just like brads.

Chewing Gum with a Kick

How cute are these little jars?
When I bought them I had no idea what to use them for, but they are the perfect size to fill with chewing gum.
The gum is Airwaves ~ cherry menthol and black mint.
I thought they were a handy size for my daughters' to keep in their bags, on those cold, dark walks home from Uni.
