for a little inspiration for the hop  i made 2 projects for a friend to wind down after the days are done.
the first one is a small lunch sack i altered.  inside ill add some fudge and a packet of flavored coffee or regular coffee and a bottle of bailys irish creme. yum! 
i used the monthly circles for this. i added the 24th using my cricut and george cartridge. i inked it up and added some sparkle with stickles. i also added a few punched snowflakes sparkling them up also.
i used my cricut and joys of the season for the hat and mitten cuts. 
for my second project 

i also used the monthly circles on this . i printed it directly onto a glassine bag.and  again i used my cricut and george cartridge for the numbers.i added some chunky glitter to the bag and used martha stewart branch punch and viva decor pearl pen for the berries. ill add fresh baked cookies inside the glassine bag when i give it to her :) 

i took a cotton bag and stamped directly onto that also. this stamp is from whimsical designs (theres a link on my sidebar) i attached some pom poms and inside i added a homemade instant cocoa mix and some mini marshmallows. i also coated a plastic spoon with chocolate, wrapped it and tucked it inside. i tied a ribbon and some twine around that. i attached the candy cane to the spoon with a glue dot. super simple little gifts but when you add the right elements or embellies it looks like ya took forever :) it shows the love for sure and thats super important :) 

thanks so much for visiting my blog i sure hope you enjoyed the hop...and thank you so much for your sweet comments they always make me smile :)
