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.

Just Cute Bears & Friends Challenge #38

Well hope you are all ok and enjoying the weekend.  I have just been catching up with some of the new creations in blog land as I dont seem to have had much chance over the last week or so.
Last weekend I had a great time with my friend Robyn.  I stayed over on the friday night and we stayed up until almost 1am crafting the night away and then started again about 9ish the following was great.
I managed to colour in quite a few images and today I am making some of them into cards.

The Challenge over at Just Cute Bears & Friends is a sketch.
I used a Marianne Design clear stamp from the Winter set which you can see here. I coloured it with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers and then added Stickles and a glitter gel pen to highlight it.
The background papers are from my stash.
Ribbon is Papermania and the snowflakes made with Martha Stewart and Woodware punches.

Thanks for looking.

A Couple of Simple Christmas Designs

I forgot to mention that I went to a Promarker Workshop on Saturday at my local Craft Shop Stampeezee.  The class was run by the super talented Sonia pop  over and see some of her fab creations.
I bought some of the Woodware Stamps that Sonia had been demonstrating with the previous week.
I have made a couple of really simple cards using the Tipsy Tree set and the Christmas Bubble clear set.
It was a really good class and I picked up quite a few tips, I know I still need lots of practice though.
Through blog land I met Sylvie who is now living in Gibraltar but is from Coventry originally. It was great to meet her and I can't wait to see some of her creations with the new stash that she has taken back with her!!
Well I must go now and see what work has in store for the day :(.
Thanks for stopping by.

A big Hello to my new followers.

Background paper and ribbon from stash.
Snowflakes are made using MS punch and Nestabilities.

Again the image coloured with Copics and Promarkers.

Snowflake stamp for background from Clarity Stamps
Ribbon from Stash.
Sentiment and Stickles from Craftwork Cards
