Have A Great Day and a Winner

Today I am sharing a CAS card I thought I would get away from the Christmas/winter themed cards. I used two of my favorite companies on this card today Basic Grey and the fabulous Hero Arts. To add a little interest I added some fun stitching around the edge of my card. How about that fabulous Felt tree??? It was really hard for me to bring myself to use this beauty and I am so happy I did.

Now for the winner of my blog candy

One Last Christmas Gift

Happy Saturday!!!! Ok so this Christmas really has been about quick presents and this project was one of them. I had bought these pails a couple week knowing that I would need them for a quick last minute gift. I simply filled the pail with some yummy candies and decorated the outside with a belly band wrapped around it and then I cut this label out of grunge board which was perfect because it is flexible and then I used some great Echo Park Dp and stickers so cute!!!
Have a great Saturday we will be getting our Christmas tree today I know late but our Holiday plans changed it's a long story that I will not get into but it's all good and I am ready to enjoy the Holiday with my hubby and kiddos!!!
