A Sprinkle of Winter and a Change of Plans

 Hello and Happy Monday!  Today, I have a very quick and easy make and share that features an image, topper and papers from The Paper Pantry Vol. III titled A Sprinkle of Winter.

I need some quick Christmas Cards to attach to homemade breads, cookies and candies that I plan to hand out to neighbors on Christmas Eve.  Our custom is to host an open house of sorts (very casual) on Christmas Eve with family, friends and neighbors popping in for the evening but this year we cancelled due to the pandemic.  So, our Plan B will be delivering our goodies on Christmas Eve and then taking a drive to look at Christmas Lights with a stop by Starbucks for a Peppermint Hot Cocoa.  It's not what I want but I suppose everyone has to celebrate the holiday whatever way they can and are allowed.

I created 10 cards of this exact style and will include with packages of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge,  Mexican Wedding Cookies, Banana and Apple Spice Loaves and Haystacks.  I plan to start baking on Wednesday and will spend all day and into the evening baking up goodies.  My house will smell divine!

The papers were cut with Stitched Rectangle Dies and a Stitched Circle die by Kat Scrappiness, the sentiment is a stamp from Gina K. Designs, the focal image was popped up on foam pads and Nuvo Crystal Drops were added for a sparkly finishing touch.  I used Gray Ink to stamp the sentiment as I thought Black was too harsh.  I love this adorable Fox...he looks like he is enjoying a Winter Day totally oblivious of COVID...lucky him!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
