Best of Snow Joy Shaker

I hope you had a thoroughly enjoyable Thanksgiving.  We had a few friends over for dinner and best of all our son was here too! Nothing like having a table full  of friends and family.  

I had a few Frosty shakers leftover from this project and like Thanksgiving leftovers they need to be used up.

Frosty Shaker front

If you are thinking that the snowman looks familiar you are right! It is a mini Frosty!  If you have been a long time customer of Stampin' Up!  you probably will remember the stamp set Frosty.   He was definitely a favorite.  Well, he has returned in a smaller version in the Best of 25 Years stamp series.   You know who also made a comeback in the Best of Snow set?  The hedgehogs!  Seriously, this is one adorable set.

Real Red Goodie Gear Goodies

I shared with you on Saturday a card I made using the striped stickers from the Real Red Goodie Gear Simply Created kit.  Today Iam sharing the treats I made using the Real Red Goodie Gear kit.  This kit makes it super quick and easy to package a little treat for your friends.  I made 7 of these little goodies and lickety split they were done.

Real Red Goodie bag votives

I used the red striped stickers to dress up some tea lights.   The only other extra I added was a little silvery star.   After making 7 of these I still had 3 white banners and 3 crumb cake tags left to use.   I couldn't let them go to waste so here's what I made.

Real Red Goodie Gear washi votives
I used the Season of Style Washi tape around the votives and the Santa from the Best of Christmas set.    The "ho ho ho" is from the Oh Goodie! set.

Best of Christmas Flip card and Goodie Gear

I was looking at this week's deal  and realized that I had the Real Red Goodie Gear Simply Created kit!  I quickly located it in my immaculately organized room (NOT but I can dream!) and decided I needed to make up some treats bags for some very special people.  I will show you those later.   There were some leftover red and white striped sticker so I decided that they would be perfect to use on cards.

Backyard Basics Sympathy

Do you keep a supply of sympathy cards?  I don't.  I know it would make  sense to have some on hand but I just don't.  Today I needed to make one and while I was making the card I was thinking about the person who we were sending it to.  I hope she finds some comfort knowing that so many people care about her and are thinking about her.
