This weeks challenge over at The Pink Elephant is Winter and or Christmas theme. This little set I made for our newphew, that's 18 yrs old. fit perfectly into this challenge. I wanted something different for him and not the normal red/green Christmas colors. These papers are from the holiday stack DCWV from Michaels. These are actually what sold me on this stack. I just loved them. Remember to click on the photos to get a bigger view if you would like to
tags bags boxes Cricut cartridge--square box --8 3/4"--7 3/4" --6 3/4"
christmas cheer cart--snowman--5"
george cart--circle (I forgot to write down the size for this...sorry)
I used a shaker card pouch from Impression Obsession to add the diamond dust to his belly with the stamped greeting. I still need to add his tag for the nesting boxes to.
view of the card...the top I used the Fiskars scallop punch and made it so it popped off instead of laying flat to the card.

A dear friend, Betty over at Scrap Happy Witch sent this blog award to me a few weeks back and this is the first I've been able to proudly display it on my blog. Thank you so much sweetie. There are a few things I need to do for it, but I will have to add that tomorrow. Thanks so much for thinking of me girl.
This set I made for "someone". Don't know who yet. But one day I wanted to make a penguin and I truly don't care for the ones that are in the Cricut books. So I set out to make one using shapes and got the idea from someone here that does alot of Stampin Up. I don't have everything in front of me right now and a link to her web site, but if someone is interested I can post them at a later time. Just let me know.
Here's the rest:
Christmas Solutions--santas sleigh--2"
tags bags boxes--nut cup--5 3/4"
I also used Heidi Swapp's snowflakes, but you can easily make your own using sheet protectors and cutting them on your Cricut machine.
here's the card
Here's what I used:
Storybook Cricut cart used for all of the frames on the cards. Dont remember the sizes, sorry Paper Dolls cart--used for the grass cut at 1" (silver card)
Angel stamp is from The Artful Stamper
background stamp-- Cosmo Cricket Mr. Campy stamp set happy holidays and my friend stamps are from Studio G (these are 2 seperate stamps)
I think this is my favorite out of all of them. The frame I took and clipped off the little thingy from the sides and used them as photo corners.
on this one I used the white puff embossing powder from Ranger to emboss the angel stamp. I really love how it feels.
Well that's it for today. I'll be back tomorrow to post a few more projects and a couple of cards that I have to share. I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season. Hugs from Charm City....
