Snowman Cookie Boxes

 Hello my crafty friends! Been trying to catch up and get ready for the holidays. I am feeling so behind!! I gave my Cricut a workout this week making these adorable snowmen boxes for my daughter to give away to her Yearbook Co-editors and staff.

Sorry the pics aren't the greatest but I made these all the night before she had to take them to school so these are all taken in my kitchen around midnight after I bagged the baked goods and put them in the boxes.  The boxes are from My Scrap Chick. I have so many of her wonderful files and have barely even used any of them. Hopefully that will change this year as I would love to make more 3D items.  I cut out the eyes and carrot nose with my Cricut but the lashes and mouth are all hand drawn. I added some pink cheeks with chalk and white doodles with my Gelly Roll pen. I finally added the sparkle on the holly berries with my Wink Of Luna pen.

The little stitched tag is from the Craftin Desert Divas Pocket Pieces HI Dies and the sentiment is from the Baked With Love stamps. 

Here is the bunch I made. I think they turned out cute and I'm so happy her friends loved them! I don't know if I will have the time to do any crafty Christmas stuff since I am so behind but hopefully I will be able to play some more in my craft room. I hope you all have fun this time of year! I'm looking forward to NOT hosting Christmas and staying in my PJ's Christmas day LOL! Yep! I decided that I'm taking this year off from having a family Christmas dinner.

Thanks for hoppin by!!

Have a blessed day!

Thanks For Being So Mice!

Hi everyone!! It's been over a month since I've been in my craft room. Trying to find my crafty mojo again and get back into the groove. Today I am sharing a shaker card I made using the adorable sentiment and mouse from the Craftin Desert Diva's Animal Antics stamp set! This set is being featured on the blog and it is the last day it will be on sale. 

I stamped and colored my own back ground paper using the cutie pie mice with my Spectrum Noir markers. The little hearts are hand drawn. I used the oval die from the Banner Dies set to cut out the center for the shaker. The layers are from the Fancy Frame Dies. I added an extra layer of glitter white card stock and placed it on a gray card base. Finally I added a bow using this sparkly heart ribbon. I had no idea where I was going when I started this card and I hope you like the finished product!

I figured this could be a thank you card for any occasion or I could even make this into a 
Valentine's Day card with all the hearts!

Here are all the CDD products I used:

Thank you so much for hopping by!

Have a blessed day!
