Sketch #241 & UYS #291 - Woodgrain~ Add a Little Glitz

 I made this card today using my new stampin up set, Add a little Glitz .  I love the big loopy "sparkle" sentiment.  I played around trying to emboss the words, with just plain red, then go back and add glitter, but nothing was lining up perfectly.  So I used cherry cobbler and  let the tree sparkle with all it's little jewels and also the glitter background paper.   I tamed things down a bit with the ribbon, I think it goes well with the wood grain background.    
I've also been working on a few little packages for my family and friends.  I had these little cello bags on hand for a long time, and didn't know what to do with them.  I did put puppy treats in them for a craft fair that didn't happen. 😞but nevertheless, I had a bunch left over and look how wonderful they turned out.  I want to make more, but we only bought one package of the Hershey nuggets.  Gosh no wonder they are wrapped in gold paper, They are expensive little chocolates.   I searched around until I found a little tray template that I thought would work.  

I'm going to submit today's card to the following challenges: 

UYS #291 - Woodgrain

  Hopefully tomorrow I will start writing out my Christmas cards.   It will ease my mind to have one more thing checked off the list.  I was able to finish our little tree today.  Perhaps tomorrow I'll post a picture of it.   Nothing big anymore.  I just can't do it with my legs/back.   But I'm very happy with our little tree, and our few decorations.   
Thank you for stopping in for a visit.  
I'd love to have you sign up and follow my blog.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
