Merry Christmas

Hello everyone and happy Monday to you.
I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was wonderful and filled with blessings. Each year around this time, our church puts on a production of "The Greatest Story Ever Told". We have about 16 scenes set up around the church campus telling the story of Jesus from the time of the prophecy of this birth to the time of his death and Resurrection. The community is invited to drive through while listening to a narration on CD. It is a very moving experience and I am so blessed to be a part of it all. We had over 800 cars to drive through during the two days we were open - it was amazing!

This week I am hoping to get all my loose ends tied up because we will be having our Christmas celebration on Saturday! I am really feeling the time slipping much too do! 

I find that I always need "a little something" for someone at the last minute so I try to make a few goodies to have on hand just in case.  I came across a file in the Silhouette Online Store for Ghirardelli Candy holders and thought they would make for quick and easy goodies....

The file number for the holder is #69518.  I did not use the band that is included in the cut file so that I could add this cute little snowman instead.

After cutting out the box from blue cardstock, I stamped on a few snowflakes from the Lawn Fawn stamp set "Making Frosty Friends.  This sweet little snowman is from the same stamp set.

The box hold 3 pieces of yummy Ghirardelli Chocolate.

I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set, "Cozy Christmas" and the "Stitched Snowflakes" die set to decorate the top of each candy box.
Okay, it's time for me to get back to work!  Thank you so much for stopping by today, I always look forward to your visits and sweet comments!  I hope you have a great day and get lots of things marked off of your "to-do" list...see you soon!
