Perfect Presentation Share!

Happy Tuesday... Hope your all having a GREAT week.. ours is going fine.. 3 more sleeps til Hubby/Daddy arrives home.. and we are all EXCITED for that!!

So I have had this box done for a couple days... just needed to make the tag and tie the ribbon around it!

This is one of Leigh Anns FABULOUS templates.. it is such a GREAT size box for treats, and little gifts.. at the moment I have nothing in it.. BUT when I do I will show you! :)

This one is called Treat Box and you can get it HERE!

I WARNED ya about the snowflake right.. :) I LOVE it.. here it is again.. a bit larger.. :)
Here is the top... Had to have a bow and a tag right!! :)
This was such a FUN , and EASY template to put together.. I used the PDF file .. because well cricut is upstairs and the computer is downstairs!! and I am LAZY and didnt want to walk her down! HA! So I printed it on white paper, and used that for my pattern.. it really went together fast.. and I WILL be making more! :) I may even walk cricut down for them!

**Edited to add to Paper Sundaes Challenge- Let it Snow! (THANKS Julie!)**

Hope your all having a GREAT week.. THANKS for stopping by!!!

Happy Saturday!! Hope your all having a GREAT weekend!!

I was able to get one more tag done for the WM tag challenge! I have to say I am LOVING this shape and sentiment.. I think EVERYONE on my list may get this tag! HA! BUT then that would mean I dont need any more xmas stamps.. and well that is just WRONG! :) So forget that! HA!

Happy Wednesday!! It is so BEAUTIFUL here today!! and YEAH good news my boys are feeling better! Both Steve and Justin werent feeling so hot this week! Yesterday Justin stayed home from school.. so I being the NICE KIND Mom that I am .. didnt want to wake him by cleaning while he napped.. so I hid in my craft room.. wasnt that NICE of me! :)

Got to work on a few things.. one of them was this tag for the Waltzing Mouse Tag Challenge! (hurry you have until Nov. 6th to join the FUN!)

I LOVE any stamp that works with the nesties.. so when I saw these that Claire designed.. I had to have them.. and the nesties too! ;) and I ADORED the holiday sentiment stamp set from last release.. so I combined the 2! I WISH you could see IRL it is so sparkly .. but it doesnt show much on film..
