Operation Write Home World Card Making Day Blog Hop

http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps/




I am thrilled to be participating in the Operation Write Home World Card Making Blog Hop!  The Hop officially starts tomorrow morning, but I am posting a tad early to ensure that all of my links work. 
 
I have 2 totally different projects to share with you today.  Who doesn't like "treats" at the Holidays?  This first project is perfect for sharing all of the Holiday goodies.  The box, along with the tag and the leaves and flower were all cut using the CTMH Cricut Cartridges called Artiste and Art Philosophy. 
My next project is totally different and was actually made to be used as a store sample at the Michaels where I teach scrapbooking and cardmaking (along with being their floral designer.)  The stamps are from Inkadinkadoo and have been colored using my Copics.
It's World Card Making Day and it's the Annual Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  I know that we are all busy, but take a few minutes to check out the wonderful projects made by fellow supporters of this terrific organization.  If you click on the link just below the OWH banner, it will take you back to the list of participants.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

What a great treat box! I was just in Michaels today for a bunch of supplies, but will have to go back for some of these to decorate! And I LOVE the coloring on the tree. The ribbon and sparklies are also the perfect finishing touches!
