Inspired by All the Little Things #37

'Tis the Season!  The season to get a jump-start on next year's Christmas cards, that is!  I'm sure I'll be hustling around by November, too!

Inspired by All the Little Things #37 has the cutest little cookie jar full of yummy-ness... check it out:


I decided to 'bake up' a little batch of Wplus9's houses in the form of kraft-cookie-dough, embossed with puffy white glittery sugary embossing powder.  I've tucked them into an acetate envelope, behind my PPP die-cut cookie jar, so that the recipient will be able to use them on her very own cards!  Pretty tricky, right?
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today... I know I've been a bit behind the scenes lately ... 'tis the season for lots of busy-ness though.   I'll be back after the first of the year with lots of goodies to share!
 
Until then, be safe as you travel, be blessed with Christmas cheer, and share as much goodwill toward all, as you have shown to me this year ... lots of hugs, and love...

You always come up with the most clever ideas, Michele! I love your 'Krafty Houses and Trees', and how you tucked in the sparkly EP for your friend :) Gorgeous cookie jar and charming bow, too...I LOVE this sweet card!

Sending you my best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year! It's been great fun visiting your blog throughout the year and becoming 'Crafty Friends'! You make the world a better place, my friend...and that's the truth!

Super cute idea, Michelle! And that die makes such a wonderful cookie jar. Now you can make dozens for all your friends--no freezing required!

A wonderful take on the inspiration photo, Michele! I love that you made it into a gift item, so the recipient can reuse the houses - brilliant! Thanks for joining us at Inspired By All The Little Things this week!

Sweet! What a clever way to send a card full of fun and love. You are so creative! I like how you have the little bits in your pictures, too. The star, present and moose add such a nice touch! I've missed seeing your creativity, but can completely appreciate that you may be a tad busy behind the scenes. I will most definitely look forward to seeing your wonderful work after the holiday! :) Hugs! Merry Christmas!

Fabulous take on the challenge, Michele - what a lovely card! I also can't keep my eyes off that adorable Moose you've used as decoration to add a festive flair to your post :-)

This is a winner, you clever girl. I love everything about it. I've been working on one for this challenge and nothing seems to be going right and it definitely won't measure up to this.
