A Cozy Christmas!

 Hello and thanks for stopping by. It's Christmas Day! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful day with your family. 

Wanted to share with you a little something I made my Mom for part of her Christmas present.

(click on picture to enlarge)

It started out going to be a card but decided to put it in a frame so that she could sit it out and enjoy it and continue to enjoy it years to come.

Placed a 2 inch circle on whisper white card stock for the moon and masked the bottom. I then sponged the sky with Soft Sky and Night of Navy Inks from Stampin Up.

Stamped the cabin with my new stamp set called A Cozy Christmas and then stamped the trees with another new stamp set called  Wonderland. Both from Stampin Up. I am Loving both of these stamp sets. So glad that I bought them.

I then added some stickles to the roof of the cabin and a little to the tree's. Added some yellow to the windows.I know you can't see it but I sprayed some glimmer mist to the snowy ground to make it sparkle a little and stamped a few snowflakes. 

I am so glad that I decided to put this in a frame.
I also thought I would go ahead a post some of the pictures I took of our Elf on a Shelf. His name is Ernie. This was the third year that he has visited us.

My Grandson Walker Loved seeing the Minion Bananas!

Walker called him Captain Ernie!

He was on a sled on the Tree with his hat stuffed in a Christmas Ball. The kids laughed at this.

I don't know If Ernie wants me sharing this private picture of him, He made his own comic strip magazine. Just glad he remembered to get the toilet paper.

I think he thought it was pretty funny to wrap himself up like a present.

Found him In the container that the bag of marshmallows were in.

  Ernie enjoyed hanging around seeing how good Walker and Scarlett was being.

And on the last day that Ernie was with us. We found him sitting In the tree. Showing us what the
true meaning of Christmas is.

 Ernie usually comes to visit us around 12 days till Christmas. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture every day. Santa came by last night and picked him up.  The kids are already missing him.  Wonder what silly things he will do on his next visit.

 Hope you enjoyed seeing my gift for my Mom and seeing some silly pictures of Ernie. Would Love for you to come by again.

 Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you!

 Happy Birthday Jesus!

Crochet Santa Ornaments and Winner!

 Hello, Hope you are doing good and thanks for stopping. This past Saturday I was in In the Santa Baby Blog Hop. I had so much fun making my projects.

My Grandchildren took the Santa and Mrs. Clause Treat Boxes today to their Christmas Parties. Hoping the teacher's and helpers like their little gifts.

If you hopped along on the blog hop, you know that I had my own little giveaway. I will be posting the winner at the end of this post.

But first I want to thank everyone for their nice comments and want to welcome my new followers.

Also I would like to share a couple of Santa Ornaments I crocheted last night to give to my Grand Children. I will be putting them in their Advent Calendars. They will be getting them later tonight. Want to give them to them now so they can put them on their tree and enjoy them.

These little Santa Ornaments worked up really fast. Thought they turned out pretty cute. I like making them something to have as a keepsake. Last year I made them snowflakes. The Santa's were a lot easier than the snowflakes that's for sure.

And now It's time to announce the winner of the Santa Baby Blog Hop.

I had the True Random Generator pick the winner and the Winner Is....................

Want to welcome you all to this fun hop, I have made a few things to share with you today. I was planning on making another project also but because of being sick and a trip to the emergency room and Doctor visits, I just wasn't able to get the other project done. (This Elf is very sad about that)!

So for my project I made a few Santa Treat Holders for my Grand Children's Teachers. This is the first year that they have had male teachers. So I thought these would be perfect. ( Sorry about the picture quality, had to take them with my phone).

I also made a few Mrs. Claus Treat Boxes for the Teacher's Helper's.

 The Boxes are filled with Hershey Kisses and a Candy Cane. I added little strips of white paper that I ran through the crimper.

You really can't see the texture of the cuffs on Santa's pants, but I pulled a piece of white cardstock into. On Mrs. Claus apron I stamped some Holly Berries with leaves and stamped little snowflakes in red on her red dress. I also added a bow to the back of the apron.

These Boxes were so fun and easy to make. Hope you enjoyed seeing them.

But before you move on to the next Elf, I want to let you know that I'm having a little giveaway. I'm giving away a Cute little Stamp Set. Because Christmas to me is all about giving.
