Chimney box - for Santa

 A cute little box that I tried this morning. Thinking of adding some batting to create a smoke effect on top or some peppermint candies.

Rudolph the red nose Reindeer

How cute is this Rudolph !  Great cutting file and was easy to put together the layers.  I added red stickles to make the nose "glow".  Now to try the girl verision - Clarise.  This would be so cute on gift bags, a banner or on a table as place cards.

My Peppermint Patty Treats...

 How fun are these !!! I made these to hold a peppermint patty or a Ghiradelli chocolate.  Thinking I could have done a real small candy cane for the snowman.  Twigs for arms and a touch of bling.  Good idea to make multiples...

Santa hat & Stocking

 Cute boxes that were not bad to put together.  I added some jingle bells, trims and ribbons.... the pine is from Tim Holtz's new die set.

An old fashioned Christmas ....

I am in Christmas mode in my craft room these days. I pulled out some of Tim Holtz and Sizzix dies to create this card. The holly branch is from the new set out this year.  A great basic for lots of projects for years to come. My inspiration came from the  Bingo card  that  made me think of Christmas from days gone by.  I added some sparkle to the chipboard and the holly berries.  The bottom read strip is box pleated red paper with a strip of glitter down the middle. I have some new dies that have holiday words that I want to try out next.
