PW Angel Art Blog Hop - Christmas in July

I'm so excited for the PaperWings Angel Art Christmas in July blog hop!! I love Christmas!

On to the Christmas goodies... I used one of my favorite sets to feature on both projects. I can't get enough of TAC's Cuddly Christmas!! Here's the card. Stickles and a great background stamp from TAC's Ready Set Snow add shimmer and depth. And, the Spellbinders pendant die, makes a super placeholder for a sentiment.
The second project is this great little favor box decorated up with dots in memento desert sand ink. I modified the box and turned it into a bag. What a wonderful way to share some handmade jewelry or candy during the holidays.
Thanks for stopping by and please check out the other great ideas on the hop!!
