Embossed Christmas Cards
I love using my Cuttlebug for embossing on my craft projects. There is something really satisfying about putting a plain piece of cardstock in the embossing folder, cranking it through the machine, and getting a beautifully embossed image. I just love it! :-) So today I am sharing a couple of Christmas cards I made using one of my all-time favorite embossing folders . . . Snowflakes. I added a stamped image (that I heat embossed before coloring) and some ribbon to complete the cards. Quick and easy, just what I needed for some last minute Christmas cards.

Today I had a family Christmas party to attend and made these cute little Hot Cocoa Pudding Mugs. Aren't they adorable? The mug is made out of pudding (and some unflavored gelatin), the handle is a pretzel, and then there is whipped cream and tiny marshmallows on top. They were a big hit at the party and I plan on making them again for another Christmas party next week.
Thanks for stopping by!
