Have A Sweet Christmas

I'm sorry for constantly mentioning it, but I really am tickled pink to be able to craft at leisure again!  The last few years, personal crafting became something I had to fit in around work crafting which took away the joy I usually get from it.  I'm having so much fun Christmas crafting this year, here are the cards, tags and treats I've made for Jasmine's classmates...

Stamps - Sweet Christmas / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; VersaMagic Gingerbread, Midnight & Red Magic / Other - MISTI; Berisfords Ribbon
