Over the next few days, I will be showing you more samples I made for my christmas workshop this month.
I cut a 3" x 4" piece of Real Red cardstock, scored and folded at 1.75" x 2.25" and rounded off all 4 corners. On the piece of Whisper White measuring 1 5/8" x 2.00" I rounded corners on the right only. A stamp-a-ma-jig was used to position and build a snowman from the "Cold Play" (retired) stamp set. With the 3/4" circle punch, I punched out a circle aperture from the bottom part of the snowman. The ribbon was positioned mid way down before the stamped image was adhered to front cover of box. The box of Tic Tac was adhered inside on right side with sticky strips. You can add a sentiment on the left, if you wish. I finished off with colouring snow in Bashful Blue with water colour crayon and an aqua pen.
This is a great project to use as a stocking filler.

I'm sorry I haven't updated my blog as often as I would like, there's so much I'd like to share but I can't until the cards and projects I've done lately have been received by those for whom it was intended.
DH sometimes reads my blog - so if you're reading this, a BIG THANK YOU for my lovely new camera - an early birthday and christmas present, a bridge camera which can do sweep panoramic shots automatically and stitches them together at one click! For my homework up to the run up before we jet off for the holiday of a lifetime - I've got to get au fait with the camera so I can get loads of piccies of the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon etc - we'll also be stopping in LA, Las Vegas, Phoenix and San Francisco. Scrapbooking material for when we get back! The countdown has already started, so we're trying to eat sensibly (not dieting, you understand - how I hate that word, because it starts all those cravings for "naughty" foods) but the aim is to shed some weight. I've been really strong this week, and walked past all the temptations in the supermarket during my weekly shop!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you're all having a great summer.
