Snowman covered choc bars

Cute cute CUTE !!! I had saved this snowman graphic 2 years ago on my pc and then lost it....know that feeling...LOL.... anyhow I came across it again when sorting out the external hard drive files....YEAH.... So I set about making some....boy did I have trouble finding fleece....anyhow I did get some....so I made the hats by stitching a fleece tube and then adding some elastic cord with beads on the end...I wanted bells but the ones I had were too little or way too big :( so beads it was.... once these were attached I then cut the fleece into strips for the top of the hat..... the scarf was just a strip with a know either end and then 2 snips to make the tails........

Wrapped and ready

How exciting....all wrapped up and ready to go to my craft buddies...you will see a theme develop over the preceeding posts LOL...can you guess what ?? x
Penguins,penguins everywhere LOL..... I had decided to do penguined themed baggies for my bestest craft buddies for christmas this year....I made the card back in August LOL....was weird doing xmas with the sun shining but hey !! I then set about finding some penguin items to go in the baggies.... hope they like them x

Penguin tag for bag

This is the tag I made for the bag...I cut a large snowflake using the sizzix #2 die and then stamped and cut out the penguin from a SU set ( thanks Mary ) and attached the penguin to the snowflake using a SU crystal brad......

Penguin card

OMG..... now isnt this just the most adorable little penguin card you have ever seen.... I love him....I have seen and saved on pc LOADS of ideas with the top note big shot die......I just knew for my craft buddies that I wanted to do this card this year. I lost the file on the PC so wasnt able to do this last year...but hooray I found it again in August this year so I made them there and then LOL..... it uses SU punches again and I just love how it turned out dont you ??? x

Penguin magnet

This is the cute little magnet that went with the socks....I just realsied I didnt get a pair for myself...silly me !!

Pebguin socks

Good old ebay more penguin items found, these socks have a cute fridge magnet of the same penguin too :) into the bag they went....
I was looking on ebay for some penguin themed items and saw these and figured they would be good to go in the baggies too.....they are pop a point rubbers...always good for crafters...doing sketches and making plans of things to make LOL....
So of course when I saw these I had to have them to pop in the bag too....I had seen them on Stephs blog but do you think I could find them NO... and I looked everywhere and then in a little sweetie shop up the road from me there they were.... I was in line to pay and I caught sight of them and I was so excited I couldnt wait to get to the till and just hoped there were enough packs for them....phew there were so in the bag they went ......

Mikado biscuits covered

Isnt this guy cute ?? I wanted to cover a choc bar to give to my buddies as part of their gift but having made the cover I couldnt find a bar to fit.... ( dont ask ) ..... so I bought the biscuits and decided to cover those instead.... I used SU punches to make the hat,face,beak,feet and wings, brads for the eyes and oval nestie for tummy that I then embossed.The white edge on his hat is an EK success edger punch and the snowflake is MS punch and a SU brad. I really enjoyed making these :) hope the girlies like them too....

My gifts to my friends

Aren't these just gorgeous....they are penguins filled with smarties....they were on offer in the range and they just had to be bought to go in the penguin themed goody bags :)

Sids treat

This is what they looked like when I bought them from the shop my Leo loves them...so I figured Sid would too. I had found a border terrier stamp last year sometime and this was a perfect opportunity to use it.....hope you enjoy them Sid.... x

Hershey treat chocs all wrapped up and somewhere to go !!!

I have wanted some of these chocs for ages they come from USA.... but they are quite heavy to be posted so when my friend went to NY I asked her to bring some back for me :)
I have seen loads of treat holders on blogs where they are covered with dsp and wrapped up so here goes....
I craft on a Tuesday am with some lovely ladies and I thought they would be the ideal recipients of such treats.....
The supplies are mostly SU the colour is Sage Shadow ( sadly retired ) I used clear baggies from ebay and variuos punches and embossing folders.
I took pics step by step so you have to scroll on down to see the finished items.
I hope the girls enjoy them :)

Snow scene Thursday 1st December 2010

This was my back garden on Thursday am before I went to work LOL....I should have taken a pic of my car before I had to dig it off the drive....

Choc Chip christmas card

I have made this card using choc chip and very vanilla card the bridesmade papers and serene snowflakes stamp.
I wanted to do "From our house to yours" and theme them to suit the recipients
lounge colours LOL.... luckily 3 of my friends have brown and beige cream decor.
I have one to do black grey and silver and one blue and silver....
I used large choc chip envelopes and ran the flap through an embossing folder...
