A Santa and some Snowmen

Yesterday my littlest turned 3. I just can't believe how time flies - Happy Birthday Samantha!

And what a treat to 'party' in a fresh snowfall. She and her sister had so much fun!

OYE, I've been SO busy, like I know many of you! So I will quickly show you what I did for my oldest daughters pre-school party. Cute little Santa's made using my Big Shot, the Top Note die and some punches. I perched him on giant Candy Canes for all the kids in her class. Cute right? PS - I don't know who the originator of this idea is, but if you know, I give them FULL credit :)

My Simple Seasonal Thanks snowman, from the Holiday Mini Catalog (111548 available only through Jan 4, 2010) - kreated a cute little gift package for her teacher. Stamped in Stazon Black for a crisp image and snipped out using the fabulously sharp Paper Snips! Using some different colored SU Markers I decorated the hat and scarf. With some Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds I made the 'brim' of the hat shimmer. So cute! On his Only Orange carrot nose, I added a tad more Crystal Effects.
Packaged them and tied them up with Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon with a few dangling snowflakes (can be found online in the Clearance Rack!)

Hope this inspires you for a few of those last minute gifts. Because of all the hustle and bustle I have left, my future posting will be short, but hopefully still inspiring :) Don't forget, the 12 Days of Holiday Sales ends tomorrow. If you own the Big Shot or like machine, you won't want to miss it!!Check out the items on sale online!

Awesome ideas, Kim!!

I especially love the thank you notes. If I can find time, I am going to CASE your idea.

Happy Birthday to Samantha! She sure is cute. I bet the girls had a blast in the snow. I went sledding this weekend and am SO sore! LOL!
