Ho Ho Ho Happy Holly-Days to show!!!

Morning everyone. Only a few more days left until Christmas. All the wrapping is done, and I'm so excited to travel to my parents house for the holiday season. There will be Swedish cookies and Aquavit, pickled herring and traditional Swedish rice pudding. I better pack the elasticized waistband pants hehe.

I've got a few projects to share with you today that I created for my December projects for Nikki Sivils. Have I ever told you how much I adore Nikki? She has the biggest heart and her talent is amazing. It truly is a blessing to be a part of her dream. First off a sweet little card created using the Sugar Cookie Collection. This collection is UBER yummy without the calories!!! I love the pinks, purples and browns together.

I added a teeny bit of tulle behind each of the hearts on the banner. I could never make miniatures lmao. I added a little bit of Creative Charms goodness with one of their antique brads (my favorites) to finish it off. Sweet indeed.

Next another Christmas Tree. There are so many wonderful trees in craft land this Christmas. So much inspiration. For mine, I used the Happy Holly-days paper to wrap a paper mache cone.  Once the cone was covered, I sealed it with Helmar Antique Acrylic Sealer for a pretty gloss finish. Then I added those wonderful Burlap Buttons, some Robins Egg Dew Drops, and a little Bakers Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.   What tree is complete without a star? A Velvet Vintage Poppy from Creative Charms does the trick quite nicely don't ya think?

Make sure you stop on over to the Nikki Sivils blog to see a bunch of amazing projects from the design team. Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope you are all enjoying your day. Until next time
