Lets celebrate Christmas early.... GIVE AWAY!

I just love Christmas and GCD Studios has 2 new Christmas collections from over the summer.
Joyful Peace and Christmas Sleigh. This month we are celebrating Christmas early, because in the month of December we will show you ALL of our newest collections for WINTER CHA 2011.

To welcome the month of November and our early Christmas celebration... Leave a comment and on Friday I'll pick one lucky girl that will win our new Christmas Sleigh and Joyful Peace.
Happy fall everyone

Happy November everyone!! Can you believe that Christmas is just a
little under 2 months away! Craziness, I tell you. Well, today I
have an inexpensive and easy gift that you can make for your neighbors,
co-workers, or acquaintances. This little set goes perfectly with the
fun and whimsical colors and patterns in the GCD
Studios "Christmas Sleigh"
paper collection...which is what I used here!











Adding the ingredients into the pretty cellophane was very easy! Just
cut a piece, and curve it into your cup. Add 4 tablespoons of cocoa mix,
4 mini candy canes broken up with a hammer, and a hand full of mini
marshmallows. Tie it all up with some ribbon, and then cut the top off
in order to even it out. I added some tissue paper into the bottom of my
cup so that the cocoa mixture would sit higher in it, as it is a pretty deep
cup. Then make a cute little tag and card to match, and you have a super
easy gift to give out that the receiver is sure to love!!

Enjoy this November, and I hope you have a wonderful time creating all those
fabulous handmade gifts this time of year! ♥♥♥

Until later,
~Lea L.

P.S. All stamps used on this project are from Lawn Fawn's "Bows and
Holly"
set.

  75. I'm not sure how to pick the profile I leave a comment with? With Google the mail would go to my gmail which I do not use, AOL says that my name could not be verified, and if I pick anonymous I wouldn't be able to be contacted right? I guess I'll try name/url? I don't have a URL! LOL So maybe this just gives me something to do and why I've never won anything! ANYWAY if anyone can see this I am VERY HAPPY to have found your site! Thanks Donna
