Hello Sweetie~~~challenge #173 at Shopping Our Stash

If you are looking for my Clear it Out post scroll down or click HERE.

Challenge #173 at Shopping Our Stash is Hello Sweetie which means we want to see some “sweets” on your project, cookies, candy, ice-cream, cake, what every you think of as sweet. Check the main blog to get the rules and have a look at all the yummy projects the design team has for your inspiration.  I have been so busy with Halloween,  Fall and Thanksgiving cards I was so excited to be able to make something different so I made a Christmas card. I used a Lacy Sunshine image called Coco with hot chocolate and cookies.  
Isn’t she a super sweet image, no that’s not the sweets part, I had some fancy buttons from doodle bug and they look like gumdrops and in the same package were some gingerbread men now isn’t that really sweet.
I even sewed the buttons with co-coordinating threads  even the paper has candy and cookies on it. The patterned paper is from a paper pad from American Crafts called Merrymint, which is a couple of Christmases ago.

Semi finished inside, I took a few things to the cottage but didn’t take ink or sentiments. I think it will be one more weekend at the cottage then we will be done for the season.
I’m glad you stopped by today and I hope you find some time to Shop your stash and join in the fun at Shopping Our Stash.
