Hip HOP Hooray!

It's the last one for the year! It's a crazy time of year and I personally will enjoy having next Thursday morning to my kiddos and the tree! Yep, a week away! Where does the time go!??!

Don't forget to stop back in on January 8th for the first hip hop of the New year!

For this weeks projects, I mustered up the strength to make a few more holiday themed cards.... I did take a few days off from stamping though. The first one uses Cosmo (Oh Joy I think) some May arts ribbon, and of course, BUTTONS! ;)
The sentiment is from itty bitty tags.

The second is nothing new, but it's a tradition around here- so I went ahead with making a "formal" Reindeer Food Jar. Now I can have the kids make up the reindeer food (oatmeal & green sugar sprinkles) and get it ready for next week!
They love sprinkling it on the lawn- (how much longer will my 9 yo do it though???)
I used quite a bit a scor pal tape to hold that little reindeer on... ;)




And the last card- uses Cosmo again, but the first is the card with the snowman removed- I used craft glue dots to hold him on. This way the recipient can hang the snowman on the tree! The mittens and flourish are from the KOM.

oh- and if you would like to win a $5 gift certificate to Unity today....just leave me a comment here! ;)
Make sure to stop by NEW MOMMY Tami's NEXT!!!! She had a little boy yesterday!!!
