Happy Thursday Everyone!!  This is my third post of the day so if you are looking for
       ~my Wags N Whiskers sneak peak, click here.
       ~my ODBD Birthday Blog hop for Kelley, click here.


Welcome to the Your Next Stamp "It is starting to look a lot like Christmas" blog hop!! Today is a new release at Your Next Stamp and the team has lots of fun images and projects to share with you!!  If you came here from Wendy's blog you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to start at the beginning!!  There is lots of inspiration and prizes along the way!!

Today I have a few projects to share with you.  The first is a card and candy holder I created with the YNS image Merry Mouse Candy Cane. 




I colored my images with copics and cut them out.  The card image is mounted on a dry embossed ornament base I created with the Spellbinders Ornament die.  The designer paper is from Basic Grey Eskimio Kisses and Olivia dp. I added silver cording and silk ribbon from May Arts to my card.  The candy wrapper is created with the Stampin Up Candy Wrapper XL Sizzix die.  I sewed on each of my projects with pink thread.

My next project uses Fhiona's Gingerbread House.  There are just so many details to color in. I had a blast using my copics.  I thought this was perfect for making a Christmas treat box.  I used the Let's do Lunch template created by Lauren Meader for Papertrey Ink.  The designer paper is from Basic Grey Jovial.    I added lots of details including the Merry Mouse Christmas candy cane sentiment (available at YNS), ric rac, buttons, ribbon, glitter, stitching, a fence border (MS punch), and a rhinestone....
