Getting Cricky Simply Sunday - Joys of the Season

Welcome to Simply Sunday with the Getting Cricky Design Team!

Today is the day that the Getting Cricky Design Team gets to show off some of the projects they have created with the wonderful stamps from K Andrew Designs.  Our theme for this week is Joys of the Season. 

I created something that could be used as a Christmas decoration, or even as a gift tag for your gifts.

I cut a tag shape with my Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge out of a gold patterned paper at 3 1/2" and then out of a dark green at 2 3/4".  I then used my Winter Wishes stamp set to create the three different phrases, No Peeking, Merry Christmas and Ho Ho Ho.  I think that the white ink really POPPED off of the deep green paper!  Then I tied the two size cuts together with some gold tulle.  

These could be used as ornaments on the tree, tied into garland or as gift tags.

I would like to offer you some blog candy . . . or maybe I should say blog popcorn!

I want to tell you about Freedom Snacks!  They have gourmet popcorn in a flavor to please everyone on your Christmas list!

Confetti: Grape, Cherry, Banana, Pina Colata, Grape,

Caramel Apple: Green Apple and Caramel

For today's prize they are offering up a 3 bag gift set!  Your choice of three flavors for your own gift pack!  You could keep the gift for yourself, or create a gift tag  like the ones I made and give it to someone you know.
