Merry Merry

Happy Christmas Eve's Eve! 

I don't know why I am posting and playing around, I really have lots to do, like the rest of you I am sure!  But these are little trinkets I made for my clients and they were so fun to create!  The cards I made for 2 dear sweet friends, my BFF's if you will.

The cards will be entered into the Challenges at; Scrapy Land, Let It Snow and Simon Says Wednesday, Make It Sparkle.

I found these fun little glass lightbulb 'ornaments' at Michael's.  The top unscrews for easy filling.  Added my Bottle Brush Trees, which I have totally fallen in love with this year!  Added 'snow' and glitter and pearls.  I placed a second tree on the top and decorated with sweet little jingle bells in pretty shades of blues.  A bit of ribbon and lace and a sentiment stamped in Bermuda Bay ink to complete.  Power Poppy stamp set, Simple Joys.

When shaken they snow AND jingle! 

My cards use the Papertrey Ink Joyful Christmas stamp and die sets.  Stitched Traditional Tags by MFT.  Sizzix Holiday Word ScriptSnowflakes Embossing Folder by Darice.  Then of course I had to make them Shakers, cutting out the jar using the tree die.  The shaker bits are sequins and snowy glitter and this great Silver Glass Glitter by Stampin' Up!

I added Holographic foil to the jar lid and Holiday Script Word dies, using my Mini Minc.  Then I just kept grabbing things and loading it up.  Doily, Silver Twine, Adhesive Pearls, Jingle Bells, Lace, Sparkly Ribbon, and Sequins.  Let's just say they have a little heft to them!
I don't think these photos due them justice, they really are super pretty!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!  I hope you find yourseleves surrounded by all whom you love!
