Candy Gifts

This week's challenge on the Heart2heart challenge blog is to make a gift item and it needs to be something other than a card.  This is the first time I have entered their challenge so am hoping that I post correctly to be entered!  :)

I made these candy gifts for a craft show I attended last weekend.  The pattern came from the talented Becky Roberts and was part of her 2010 12 days of Christmas tutorials which can be found here.

Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted:
Cardstock:  New England Ivy, Cranberry, Olive, Juniper, White Daisy, Blush, Hollyhock, Colonial White
B&T:  Mistletoe, Mistletoe Creative Basics, Jingle Creative Basics
Ink:  New England Ivy, Hollyhock, Cranberry
Stamps:  Just for the Holidays
Embellishments:  Red, pink and Purple sparkle assortment; bitty sparkles; olive organdy ribbon (retired); white daisy organdy ribbon; cranberry ribbon; misc ribbon from Michaels or JoAnn's
Tools:  1 1/2" scallop punch (Marvy); 1 1/4" circle punch

I made 3 of each design for the craft show.  I even have a few left that I can use for teacher gifts this week - one less thing to get done in the busy weeks before Christmas!  :)

Plenty for Twenty!

Close To My Heart's December campaign is Plenty for Twenty! 

When you shop my website and spend $20 or more (before shipping and tax) on wonderful Close To My Heart products, you'll receive a free D-size stamp set valued at $22.95 for free—that more than doubles your value!  And on top of that, Close To My Heart will select random orders to have an additional little travel buddy with them…STICKY BOY!

This special runs from December 1 - December 31, and there is no shipping/handling or tax assessed on the free stamp set.  The free stamp set will be selected by Close To My Heart, so you won't know what set you are getting until you receive your order.
