Penny Black Challenge Week 127

All My Favourite Things is the theme of the challenge this week at Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I am also entering this into Penny Black Allsorts - Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas and Winter Wonderland - Winter Sport
So how do I pick my favourite things......hmmmm well it has to be the cute hedgehogs and of course snowy.  I then had the dilema that I couldn't just pick one stamp.....I had to use 3!!   The other favourite thing has to be freebies so the background paper and the sentiment were free with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine.   Of course there also had to be snowflakes and glitter to finish it off.

Thanks for looking.

Christmas Cookie Jars

Hello everyone,
I bet some of you are enjoying an extra hour in bed.........for me its an extra hour to play!!!!

I made a couple of these jars earlier in the year to see if anyone would want to buy them as gifts for Christmas. I have got a few on order so thought I better make a start instead of leaving them til the last minute.
I have simply layered the ingredients in the jar,printed out the method and then made a tag. Decorated the jar with ribbon and the top with die cut snowflakes.
They make great gifts and are realtively quick and easy to produce.
Thanks for loking.
