Gifts for Teachers...

Christmas is almost here!! The kids are now out for a two week winter break, and yesterday we passed out cookie bags to their teachers. We always include the kids previous teachers as well, it's a tradition that my daughter came up with back when she was in first she's a beautiful teenager in 8th grade! I have to say we can only do this for the elementary school teachers she and her brother has/had. To include the middle school teachers would be quite a task! Here's the quick tag I put together...

The darling gingerbread man is from Pink Gems and the back tag is again the Meljen's using it!

Holiday Cupcakes...

Only 11 more days until Christmas!!! Went shopping this weekend with the kids and DH, got a good start, but much more to do!! Well, gonna make this quick so I can get more holiday crafts done. To start, I was planning this for the Lollipop Crafts Challenge, but missed the deadline :( ... so went over to Meljen's challenge, and it was a perfect fit! Color challenge #37 is to use red, green, and gold - very traditional holiday colors!

I used the cupcakes trio and holly leaves, both freebies from Meljen's. To make them holiday cupcakes, I added a red ribbon and popped on the tiny holly leaves! Used plenty of stickles and shiny gloss accents to make it all spakly!

I also found a new challenge over at Sundays with Crissy. She has adorable, sweet images, but this challenge is open to use any image with a winter theme!

Thanks for stopping by! ;)

Christmas Tags...

Is anyone ready for the holidays? I know I'm not...hehee! Today I'm sharing my tags that I made for the Monthly Tag Swap hosted by Kyoko. This time around it was for both Nov and Dec, so we had to make two sets! I was a bit late, but was finally able to get it out earlier this week to my partner!
First set I used an adorable penguin from Di's digis, there are some many cuties! First try at using flock on the hat...I used the MS flocking powder, thought it would have been more fluffier, guess I'll have to experiment some more. Added some shine and stickles on his scarf. The back was stamped with AmyR's Winter Sentiments and border stamp from Recollections line at Michael's.

My second set is images from Tiddly Inks. These adorable fairies are Bah-Huggabuggs, so cute! Couldn't resist to add spakles everywhere! For the back, I printed a Meljen image, a freebie this time, cut it out, colored the holly, inked the edges, and tied it on! Over at Tiddly Inks, this week's challenge is Christmas Caroling..."Oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree, of all the trees most lovely..."

There's so much more to get done before Christmas...
Thanks for stopping by! ;)

edited: sorry the printed freebie is from Meljen's Designs, not Tiddly Inks.
