Salt Shaker Christmas Ornaments

Hello everyone, I hope your day is going well!   I am taking a quick break before I start my dinner for tonight's guest.          I wanted to share some sweet little Christmas ornaments I made using old salt shakers.
 Aren't they sweet! I love the tiny little trees inside! I added some snow too.
 You can't see from the photo but this one has a beautiful rhinestone button on top of the shaker.
On this one I added a red and white stripe piece of cardstock around the lid and added red rhinestones to the top.  I gave these to my daughter in Florida as part of a box of assorted ornaments that I made.
I hope you enjoyed see my little ornaments.    I hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

Silent Night Christmas Card

Hello everyone, I hope you have had a good day!     I have had a busy one! We are having our neighbors across the street to dinner Saturday night. I had to do some touching up around the house and then go to the store. I am making Penne Pasta with Sweet Italian Sausage and Peppers and Onions, salad, garlic bread, ice tea and chocolate lava cake. I am making them a Pound cake to take home. They took care of our cats when we went to Florida and I wanted to thank them, we also brought them a bag of tangerines from Florida.        I also stopped by the Salvation Army Family Store to see the ladies and take them each a card and little gift. Boy did I get the hugs! They are so sweet!
I am posting a Christmas card I made Tuesday, in fact I made 12. I was in such a crunch since we were away for Thanksgiving that I hunted on Pinterest for inspiration and found this beautiful card. I don't know the designer to give her credit but I sure do appreciate the idea. I changed mine just a little, I embossed the bottom layer and she stamped her's.
 I love this beautiful card! I printed out the Silent Night sheet music.
 The trees  and sentiment are Stampin' Up. I made the dots on the velum with white acrylic paint.
 I embossed the bottom layer the snowflakes.
I thought this sentiment was perfect for this card.                         I hope you all have a wonderful evening and thank you for stopping buy!

Mrs. Claus Cookies Box and Shirt

Good morning everyone!        I  had a request from my daughter to make a recipe card from Mrs. Claus. You see, she asked Ruby what she wanted from Santa Claus. Ruby replied "Strawberry Cookies"! My daughter had a recipe for strawberry cookies and sent it to me by by e-mail. I found a cute recipe card from Mrs. Claus on Google. I added Mrs. Claus and Santa and typed in the Recipe and Ruby's name and printed it out (she is going to frame it to sit it up on her cookbook bookcase every Christmas). She is going to get a box and put most of the ingredients, (sans refrigerated items) in the box with the recipe from Santa. I decided to take it a step further and decorate a cute little shirt with an iron on and make a box to match it.          Of course Ruby is getting more than strawberry cookies for Christmas. I know for a fact she is getting a tricycle and baby doll. 
I talked to her last night and she had just gone to a concert that her Mom conducted (she is Director of Music at a school). Mom asked again what she wanted from Santa and she said "a marching band", and I said what about a baby doll? Ruby replied a "baby doll and a marching band".  I don't think we can fit a marching band in a box!
Here is the Recipe card from "Mrs. Claus". I put a piece of paper over Ruby's full name.
 Here is the shirt and matching box.
 I love the added jingle bells with twine.
 here is the back of the box. Mom or Dad can fill in Ruby's list.
Here is the top of the box.                                        I hope you enjoyed the story. Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping buy!

Silhouette File for box and iron on for shirt.
Recipe Card found on Google. I added Mrs. Claus and Santa and the Recipe.
