Christmas Wishes

   It's the most wonderful time of the year! 
Yes, Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year!!
I've been busy making my Christmas cards
for the past week, trying to quickly get them done
and in the mail, but took a break from it today
to teach a class at my favorite scrapbook shop,
Memories of Time.
This is the card we made in class:

(please click on the photos to enlarge them)

The image we colored is Mo Manning's stamp
called "Christmas Fairy Holly."
It is available here at Memories of Time.
The gals who took my class were so much fun
to teach and we all had a great time!

Be Jolly Snowman Gift Box and Tag

Yes, Christmas is just around the corner,
so I've started making Christmas
cards, boxes and such!

I made this little gift box and tag
then taught a class so that others could
learn how to color and make it, too.  FUN!!

This is an AccuCut  #14 box that I was able to cut
out at my local scrapbook shop, Memories of Time.

The stamp set I chose to use is from
Our Craft Lounge and it's called
"Be Jolly."(click on the link so you can see the set!)

The box is 4" wide x 2 1/2" deep x 3 1/2" tall.
I thought it would be perfect for
a wee Christmas gift or treat
and it comes with a tag as well.

Craft cardstock was used for the box itself.
