Hello & welcome to My Creative Time's "5" Days of Christmas"! This week we will be sharing w/you LOTS of last minute Christmas ideas, such as cards, layouts, home decor, 3-D items & what ever else come to mind that will help YOU get your juices flowing for the holiday! There will be a giveaway each day & a winner will be announced each day! Example, winner of Monday will be announced on Tuesday, winner of Tuesday will be announced on Wednesday.....and so on!
You will see the different prizes each day on Emma's blog HERE! I hope we ALL inspire you this week! 
 
For my last project I wanted to make a recipe card for friends.  Every year I make English Toffee for gifts.  This year I'm thinking of adding a recipe card with it. :)
 
 
I didn't have time to write out the recipe before I took the picture, I really wanted to take my time since I don't have the best handwriting :)  However I feel it really important to hand write them, it's like your giving more of yourself that way. 

 
I plan on adding a picture of the candy on the red mat, that way who gets this will know what they are making.
 
 
Wouldn't this be a great gift with a box of family favorite recipes!  Handwritten and a picture of past holidays!

Today I wanted to share with you a quick and easy card!  I LOVE the new Fun Stitched Edges Dies!  I'm still amazed by the details of the stitching and the intricate cut of the zigzag one I used!  Actually I love all of them!
 
I stamped the star then "fancy" cut it and then added some chunky glitter.  I couldn't get a great picture with the natural light I had available...it looks waaaay better in person!
 
I also added some fine glitter to the little "sparkle" stamp

Today I wanted to share with you a kind of "Advent Calendar" however I didn't finish it.  Last week was so crazy with family for Thanksgiving and my daughters shower that I just couldn't get it together.  I was thinking it would be fun to have candy canes on the tree that could be plucked off each day until Christmas!
 
Even though it's December 3rd, I think this could still be doable for this year!
