Crafty Secret's Christmas Blog Hop!

This month's challenge issued by our very own Vicki Chrisman, was Christmas!!! Pretty easy since I am working frantically to get a head start on my Christmas gifts anyway. I wanted some little token gifts for my son and daughter's CCD teachers. So I bought these yummy Ghiradelli chocolate bars and prettied them up a bit. I used a Santa image and colored him in with Copics and Prismas. I flocked his hair, eyebrows, and beard. I wrapped the candy bars with pink paper punched with my Martha Stewart punch. The circles and scalloped circles were cut using Spellbinders. I added a doily too! The final touches were some jingle bells, a jewelry tag and some pointsettia leaves using my Cricut.

I also have a lil' Christmas ornament to share with you. I have a bunch of these acrylic frames from a few years ago....that have been collecting dust. So I pulled them out and decided I would make some ornaments. I used the gingerbread stamp from the Sweet Kids set. He was colored in with my Copics. I added some sparkly snowflakes dressed up with a button and floss to the outside of the frame. I added a pretty satin ribbon to the back....and that's it! A cute little ornament lickity split!

You have to check out what the other DT gals did! They just amaze me with their talent and creativity!!!! : )
