Let the December Paper Sweeties {peeks} begin!!

Hello friends and welcome to my blog today!  I hope you all are just about ready for the upcoming holidays ... less than two weeks until Christmas -- time is just flying by!!

I'm super excited to share a little set I recently created for the December *new* stamp release at Paper Sweeties!  I used an older set in combination with a brand new set and created a snow-y themed gift perfect to give to family and friends all winter long!

We made these sweet snowmen treats for my bunco holiday party this past Sunday!  My little poodle eats chicken baby food for dinner each night, so I always have an abundance of tiny little jars that I usually recycle with the trash each week, but when I saw these adorable little snowmen on Pinterest a few months back, I just knew we had to make some!  The sentiment on the tag was stamped using the Stand Add-on 4 set ... just perfect for this little fella!!

The top jar is filled with mini marshmallows, the middle jar is filled with some Toffee Coffee Cocoa from Tastefully Simple and the bottom jar is filled with peppermint candies!!  Super easy and fun to make these little men ... the girls and I had an assembly line of them going on Sunday!!

Next I created a coordinating card for my little snowman gift using a sentiment from the brand *new* Friendship Warms The Heart set - available on December 15th!  I am smitten with this sweet saying ... I included a red and white damask butterfly on top of my glittered snowflake, a red bloomer, a chenille candy cane and some jingle bells tied on with baker's twine - yum!

And here you have it ... my snow-y themed gift set -- ready to be given out over the holidays to that 'special someone'!!
