Good Morning All!!! Today is Sunday and boy is it ever a winter wonderland here with snow covering the trees and ground. Just last week I was saying to Scott how hard is was to believe it was December with the mild temperatures and get into the Christmas mode. I know Christmas is not about the snow....but I just associate winter, snow, cold and Christmas together since that is all I have ever known. Well.....we got some snow and boy does it ever look beautiful!!!! Here are a few pictures.The nature around us is so beautiful!! Our own creations can never compare to the beauty of God's canvas!!!

Well anywho....with Christmas right around corner....I have been creating gift baskets for my family. On Tuesday, I shared a few creations I had made for a basket and had said I would continue adding on and sharing with you here. The creation below is a honey peanuts can I altered. My brother in law love Honey roasted peanuts so I decided to add it to my gift basket. I covered the can with SEI Bisette paper and added a sentiment from His Gift from Our Daily Bread Designs. The snowflakes are created using the Peace and Joy stampset from ODBD which are embossed in gold and cut out using the Spellbinders Create a Flake 1 die set. Just in case you missed the blog hop and my post sharing my other items for the basket, I have included the photos above. I have many more pieces to add so I will be sharing more in future posts.

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Peace and Joy, His Gift
Paper: Gold Metallic, Very Vanilla, and SEI Bisette
Accessories: Create a Flake 1 Spellbinders, Pearl flourishes from ZVA Creative

I hope you have enjoyed today's post! Thanks so much for stopping by and for your inspirational comments. I really enjoy reading them!! Have a blessed weekend and see you at your blogs!

hugs and blessings,
