Christmas Treats

Hi everyone... the Christmas season is definitely upon us and I work retail and my body is really feeling the residual from all the busyness. The employees at the store have been so exhausted and I thought I would make them a batch of what I call "Snowman Poop".... lol... it's something I usually make this tine of year because it's quick and yummy and sometimes you just need a little snack to keep you going. 
Here is the recipe for this fun treat:
Popped corn (salted a bit)
Melted white chocolate chips
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn and mix to coat. Lay out on wax paper to set and then break apart into pieces.
I filled treat bags with this yummy treat and included a little poem... now I'm not a poet so cut me some slack...
Merry Christmas to you all
And here is the scoop
You've all been naughty
So all you get is Snowman poop
Very simple to make and fun to give and eat. Hope you enjoyed this post and now I'm off to bed. Have a Merry Christmas !

Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas everyone... today I am sharing with you a Christmas Waterfall card I made for gift cards. I love making waterfall cards, they are so much fun. I did not include a tutorial on this but if you are interested Dawn 5377 YOUTUBE is amazing at all different interactive cards. 
The paper collection I used for this is DCWV "Christmas Made". Wonderfully pretty paper. I added gold Stickles to my Christmas tree on front page as well as used red ribbon for bow and waterfall pull. I added Marvy Uchida Liquid Applique "White" for cuff on Santa's hand. I cut circular tabs on each waterfall page to hold the gift cards.
So you better get going on those cards... you only have 17 more days til Christmas... xoxo Toni

That's a Wrap

I ♥ ♥ ♥ Christmas... but I have to admit, one of my least favorite things to do is wrap gifts... not sure why, I just don't really enjoy it. But came upon this wonderful youtube tutorial from one of my favorite crafters Arlene...mybutterflykisses12 she created a Christmas card with box. I thought this would be so much fun to wrap a couple of gifts for special people in my life. I actually did not need the box tutorial because my gift came in a box already but I altered the dimensions of the card tutorial to fit my box. This was so much fun. The paper line I used is by DCWV "Cup of Cheer". I added I am Roses poinsettia flowers to the lid as well as some small pine cones from my yard. All papers were sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang "Glory of the Seas Gold"

What a fun way to give a gift... stop by Arlene's YOUTUBE channel.. she is amazing  and always has wonderful tutorials. Have fun getting all those gifts ready for the special people in your life. xoxo Toni
