Christmas Challenge #14 at Hooked on Craft

Ho, ho, ho my readers!

Thank you for visiting and Merry Christmas to you! I don't know if I'll have time to write again before Christmas. I thought I'd take the time today to extend wishes of love to each of you during this beautiful season of the year! Each of you is a treasure!

Our challenge this fortnight at HOOKED ON CRAFT is to celebrate the spirit of the season - Christmas - by creating a special something that is reminiscent of Christmas. This challenge runs from December 12 to the 24. What you create is entirely up to you! You always design such lovely things, so this shouldn't be hard at all. ! I considered making a card but thought that maybe this little project might be useful to others who view it. There are a lot of photos, so be prepared!

Inside the bags are eight BROWN candies and one RED candy. I apologize that they look black. For this project, I used the wonderful series of six Christmas Reindeer stamps available at HOOKED ON CRAFT. I also used little red pearls for Rudolph's nose, gorgeous Poinsettia flowers in assorted colors, Kindyglitz for the glitter, Copic markers, some Snow Tex, and a little tiny bit of cotton for the tails! Are you ready? On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer, on Vixen on Comet, on Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen!

This is the group shot of all the treat bags.

Aren't they delightful! I wish I could say I originated the concept, but sadly, someone else thought that up. I just created the topper the way I wanted it to be for me. I love how my topper turned out. I used my Nesties, Marianne Design, and Cheery Lynn dies to cut the elements out.

Here are the closer shots of each individual bag:

If you're still with me at this point, here are the closeups of the tags:

Well, that's all she wrote, folks! I hope you liked my little collection of sweeties! Good luck on the challenge! Remember, you have until Dec. 24!

Blessings to you,
