The cutting cafe blinkie
Finally the weekend!! It couldn't have come soon enough really. It has been one of those weeks but at least I got to play with some awesome sets from The Cutting Cafe to get through it!! 
After a few burnt fingers, I can say I got reacquainted with my embossing gun and powders. I forgot how much I enjoyed working with it, well minus the burnt flesh, but that will be better next time. It was just the tag I was working on and was a little impatient, so it was my own fault lol Regina has released such cute sets and scriptures this week over at The Cutting Cafe, you really need to head over and take a look!! I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!
 For this weeks project, I worked with the newly released FUN WITH FROSTY THE SNOWMAN - PRINTABLE STAMP SET & the 3 NESTING BOXES CUTTING FILES/TEMPLATES. I used the quite a few pieces from the Frosty set, such as Frosty himself, icicles, Snowman Soup Poem, Icicle background, but theres so many pieces to this set that you can create with. The creative possibities with this set are endless this holiday season. Each box contains a different portion of the 'Snowman Soup'. The top box I put some peppermint candies, middle box has a little bag of marshmallows, and the third box has a few different flavor pouches of Hot Chocolate, and then attached two "stirring sticks" behind the 'Snowman Soup' recipe. Thanks for taking the time to check out my project and I hope to see you creating something with this set really soon!!! Have a great weekend!!
