Happy WOYWW !!! May you have had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy NEW YEAR soon 
So Christmas we had LOTS of baking for sure with me making lots and also Co-workers and Friends we have all eaten to may sweets this time every day at work there was MORE cookies and MORE chocolate it was the most I have ever seen this year.
So here is my space today working on a Pocket Letter that was created using scraps from my sister that she mailed me all her Tim Holtz left overs so why not make a Pocket letter seeing some of these are the perfect size. 
Not done yet but still working on it  need to make matching Tags and stuff for it. 
Thanks for looking

Deer Penguin

I've been playing along in the progressive challenge with Sasayaki Glitter Digital Stamps on facebook and so far this is my 3rd time and I choose to try creating without a sentiment seeing this doesn't have to be for christmas if I don't want it to be and I've managed to use up some of my ever growing pile of Washi tape these where from PL swaps so there wasn't much left of one of them but I like all the little banners off on the side it's different for me and I managed to use 6 different types in this the little drops my sister made and they where the perfect match for this

Happy WOYWW too 
Here is my space today someone was wanting ideas on how to store stickers/die cuts etc myself I keep them in a binder with pocket letter holders and just full sheet holders it works perfect for me
I have a few Christmas cards left so I'll have some for next year all set to go :)
Not really making to much do have one winter card hiding under the binder but it's not for anyone just yet just a progressive challenge I joined in 
May everyone have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and I'm going to hopefully visit as many people as I can

Winter Pocket Letter

Now I just finished this Pocket Letter it's swap buddy doesn't know my blog ?? maybe ?? but I really wanted to share it seeing the Winter Coffee Lovers Hop is almost over a week of Delicious any Hot Beverage Creation I've managed to post a few this time to join in and I know that for me a Pocket Letter takes a while to make mostly cause I just want to make one with zero Idea of what I'll be doing. This one was no different it started out with blue paper  Yep that was binned lol so I like the candy cane feeling of this and I love the cup of hot chocolate on the snowman's head. Now that's a snowman that lives dangerously lol So I have two little shaker windows in this and a little scene below of winter scene inside.

Gingerbread Christmas

I lost track of the time and almost didn't send any cards for Caring Hearts annual Card Drive 
So I made up a bunch of sets which I normally don't do but this worked well for me this year 
this was the last set I made up with. I wanted the gingerbread man to look a little baked so he's been covered in gold ink and then gone around the edges with brown. The Eyes sparkle black and the hears are a velvet paper which is so soft but was perfect for these I also made these cards with a pull out sheet in case they would like to reuse this card
