Christmas Card Tin!!


Well, it's been a very long and busy weekend....but it's over. Thanks to everyone who gave me some suggestions....I really appreciate it! We got the turkey in at 7am and made the squash and potatoes and put them each in a slow cooker on warm. That way we had less to do at the last minute. Everything went fairly smoothly, but let's just say I'm glad that it's over!!!

I'm very excited this week though because it will be my first release as a Design Team Member with My Favorite Things!! I've been working hard in my 'spare time' to create some great samples with the new stamps and I just hope that my creations meet MFT's expectations! The other members of the team are SO awesome, I'm just at TAD nervous about my designs!!

Anyway, here is my first one using the new set Baby It's Cold Outside!! I found these awesome tins at the dollar store and each one is red and white striped with a lid and a swivel handle. Well, I don't like to hang all my Christmas cards up around my house and if you set them up on tables and shelves, they just fall down or rather get BLOWN down, what with my crazy Jack Russell Terrier, Daisy racing all over the house!! So I decided to make a cute little decorative tin to put them all in!!

I used the Winter Bright designer papers and adhered it to the tin using Sticky Strip and I punched out room for the handle with one of my circle punches. Then I attached the satin polka dotted ribbon around the top with Sticky Strip too. So easy! I stamped the little lady building a snowman on SU watercolour paper and used my SU markers to colour her in and also paper pieced her dress with more Winter Bright dp. I added 3 SU brads for buttons and made the snow, snowman and her boots all sparkly with Stardust Stickles!! I used one of the big snowflake cardstock stickers from the Simply Scrappin' kit and then I used one of my Cuttlebug Alphabets to make the title and ran the letters through my Xyron and attached them to the tin. I finished it off by adding some matching ribbon and a few silver jingle bells to the handle! It looks great in my livingroom, just waiting for my first Christmas cards!!!



OHMYGOSH!! I just checked the MFT site and I'm listed on The Team page!! I could just die!! I'm so excited!! This is too much for this early in the morning!! Wow!! I feel special! And don't forget to check out the other DT members' blogs for their sneaky peeks too!!

Anyway, here's some news for ya!! My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, December 5 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time!! Head over to the MFT forum on Splicoaststampers to find out all the details and join us there on Wednesday night! There will be give aways, coupon codes, a challenge and sneak peeks.
