This one is from my mother-in-law, Barbara. You can't see it to well in the picture but the star is embossed with clear embossing powder and So Saffron ink.
This one is from my upline's upline and good friend, Alisa. I love these colors!
This one is done with Kraft and Mellow Moss. Again, the background trees are embossed with white embossing powder. Also on this card I did the Itty Bitty Background with Craft White on the actual card. I used the 1/4 inch grosgrain Mellow Moss ribbon.
This one is done with Kraft and Always Artichoke. I changed the side of the ribbon to give it a little bit of its own flavor. For those who know me I get bored very easy and have to change things around and make several different Christmas Cards to get my fill! Everything was done the same on this card except for the colors and the ribbon done on the left instead of the right. This ribbon is the 1/4 inch Always Artichoke. I did make 14 of these.
This one is exactly like the one above except it has 1/4 white grosgrain instead of the 1/4 inch Always Artichoke Ribbon. I did 10 of these.
Thanks for looking! I have day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas ready to post but I have a crying 3 year old right now. I will get it on as soon as I can.
Here is the recipe:
1 1/2 Tablespoon of Sugar
1/3 Cup of Nesquick (chocolate milk mix)
1/3 Cup Coffee Mate - Italian Sweet Creme Flavor
1/2 Cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 Cup Mini Marshmallows or 4 large Marshmallows
Makes 4 cups
Boil 4 cups of water. Add all ingredeints from the bag except marshmallows. Bring mixture almost to a boil. Put in a mug, add some marshmallows and enjoy!
Here is the tag with the snowman soup saying. I did not add the candy cane to mine but that would be your "stick" or you could take a plastic spoon dip the end in melted chocolate, let it dry and wrap it in a small cello bag with some ribbon. Then add it to the cone.
Was told you've been real good this year.
Always glad to hear it!
With freezing weather drawing near,
You'll need to warm the spirit.
So here's a little Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick.
Add hot water, sip it slow.
It's sure to do the trick!
This is an ornament I would like to share that my daughter Shelby made. It is made with three Popsicle sticks. The Popsicle sticks were covered with SU! Close to Cocoa ink. She glued two goggle eyes on and a round fuzzy red nose. She also glued the two lose pieces of the green yarn to the back so you would not see it from the front. I thought this was so cute and something you can do with your children.
I have a scrapbook page that I will be posting shortly from my club this weekend. Also, day 8 is coming up!

Thank you Diana Gibbs for sharing the instructions for this project! Also, thank you Judi (my upline) for this wonderful idea and project at the meeting. You are the best!
My idea with this project was to include the recipe. I would put this in a gift bag so I made a tag for my gift bag using the Winter Post stamp set. On the other side of the tag is the recipe for Strawberry Angel Cookies. The DSP paper is double sided but it matches the strawberry. What strawberry you ask?This is the top of the jar. I stamped the strawberry and cut it out. It is mounted on stampin' dimensions. I also punched a piece of the DSP and a piece of Naturals White using the Scallop Circle Punch and twisted them so that each scallop would show through.
This is the inside. You can also make these as your Christmas Card and add a family photo instead of a gift card. As you can see I have added a photo of my girls inside this one.
This is the second design that we made in club. I put Dazzling Diamonds on the Dove and on the Roof of the House using the Two Way glue pen. It doesn't show up well in the photo but it really adds alot to the project.
