BBTB2 Challenge-Winter!

Hello my crafty friends, happy Monday to you all! Hubby and I are getting his third round of chemo this morning and while we are gone I am hoping that you will go check out this weeks challenge over at BBTB2. Our sweet and talented Sharon has given us the challenge of doing a winter project. Well I don't know about you all but that storm that made it's way across the country hit here yesterday and we got our first snow of the season. As a matter of fact hubby and I got in the hot tub while it snowed and boy was it delightful!  The snow is so beautiful when you don't have to drive in it. lol 

Ok for my project, you may have already seen one as I did the same project on Friday and you can see that one here. I made a card/candy box. lol I love making these. They are so fun to make! I didn't have any Dove chocolates, 12 fits in the box perfectly, so I just used what I had on hand for the picture. I will get some Dove chocolates later or the favorite candy of the person whom I give these too. I want to make a 5 for our boys to place their gift cards in and their favorite candy. I think these are also a fabulous "thinking of you" gift for teachers, mail personnel, etc...I used the Cricut cartridge Anna Griffith Winter Wonderland-thought it was a fabulous cart to use for a winter project and since it was snowing here, well I had to go with a snowflake. I cut out my snowflake layers out of glitter paper, hard to see in the photo but the blue/green layer and the white layer are glitter paper. I used SU papers for my inside and outside layers, SU framelits dies form my window and window layer, kraft card stock base, a silver pen for my stitching around my box window, MCT stitched tab die, MCT "It's a Magical Season" sentiment, MCT 4x3 journal die, and a CTMH stamps from a "on the go" kit. I think that is about it. Linda over at the Paper Boutique has a wonderful video tutorial on how to make this card/candy box if you want to make some for the holidays too. Now won't you go see what my fabulous design team sisters have for you? Then join us by linking up your Cricut winter project with us, you know we love when you get crafty with us! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit me today, I love when you do. Crafty hugs, Brenda

Brenda, you've inspired me again! I made place cards (inspired by your November 18 post) for the Thanksgiving table with Hershey miniatures in them. That was a hit! I'm going to have to make some of these for everyone next!! Hope all is well at your place and your hubby is enjoying some of this candy as he recoups!

Brenda said...

Thanks Katrina, glad I am able to inspire you! Hubby is resting, chemo takes 5 hours and is very tiring for both of us. Hubby does love his candy! lol

This is gorgeous Brenda. Love your soft colours and of course your design.
The hot tub sounds fun...think there is something magical about being in a hot tub when the weather around you is stormy!

This is so icy & sparkling...perfect color choices for your snowflake motif. These are the cutest little boxes..you're a sweetie to make these for the gifts that you described. Inside is just as pretty as the outside too. TFS & stay warm. Bet that hot tub felt so good with the air being so cold out of the hot water. Hugs
