The cutting cafe blinkie
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by today. Are you getting tired of me yet?? lol There has been so much inspiration on so many blogs, that it has my creative mojo running right now. Well hopefully you'll think it's 'creative' mojo lol I really had a lot of fun making this Gift Tag set with Gift Box! I'm not sure where it will go yet, but I'm leaning towards maybe my mom..not sure yet. 
For this project, I used the Square Box with Dividers, and left out the dividers because I made my tags a little too big, and I also used the Christmas in A Square Printable Stamp Set, both you can find at The Cutting Cafe!! Regina has some awesome digital stamps and stamp sets, as well as cutting files and she's adding new set/s daily so be sure to check them out.
I also used the digital stamp set from Stitchy Stamps called Ginger Folk Gift Tags and an adorable decoupage wobble card made by Mary Jane Harris and can be found at craftsUprint and left the wobble card part off and just used the lil Gingerbread in a cup Image.
I was inspired to make this project from the "Winter Wonderland" theme challenge over at One Stitch At A Time Challenge Blog. I don't get much of a WINTER Wonderland living here in Arizona, but it does get a little chilly, so for me, it reminds me of evenings around the fireplace with Hot Chocolate and warm Gingerbread Cookies.Which I always eat the poor little head off first..lol How do you eat your Gingerbread Cookies?
Anyways, I'll shut up now and show you a few more pictures.
Thanks for stopping by as always and I appreciate all your comments!!
