Waltzingmouse Christmas Blog Waltz

Today is the Waltzingmouse Stamps Christmas Blog Waltz!  I chose to use the holly leaves and sentiment from Sewing Box-Christmas, one of my fave Christmas sets of all times!  I made my background paper using the Pic-Nic Patterns stamp set, and added Musical Backgrounds to my holly leaves.


I made a little treat envelope just big enough to fit a package of cocoa or coffee inside.  I made the plaid paper using the 2 plaid strips from Pic-Nic patterns, then scored 2 lines in the middle and brought the sides up to meet each other.  Punched 2 holes and threaded with ribbon.  The holly berries are little red bells from Jo Ann's that I sewed on!


A sweet treat for someone sweet...using the sweetest stamp set!  Thanks for stopping by today!
