Only a few more days . . .

Hello my friends and HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

Well, there's only a few more days for me to get things created & ready for the big craft show I participate in at the high school each year.  This show has 150+ vendors and draws quite a crowd.

Each year I try to have something new to share & sell.  One of those items this year are the Kids Kard Kits I shared with you in an earlier post HERE.  Something else that I know you've all seen around blogland but I've never made for the show are Hershey Bar Pouches. (if you'd like a tutorial please leave me a comment and I'll get one made up for you)  I think they will make great stocking stuffers ... here are a few I made yesterday. (The candy cane image is a *NEW* pre-colored image which will be available at the Shelly's Images store very soon ... perfect for this item ... quick & easy.)

I have used various scraps of holiday paper from my stash for the background on these Hershey Bar Pouches.  The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is a new Cheery Lynn Designs die (B186) that I purchased at Joan's Gardens.  The Snowman is a Marianne die (LR0246) also from Joan's Gardens.  The trees are Spellbinder (Nestled Trees), Mittens are Sizzix and Deer is also Spellbinder (Fanciful Holiday).

Here are a few other items for the show:

Christmas Card Sets

Holiday Tissue Box Covers w/matching cards.

And, by request, Wedding Money Holders.
I have several money holders made up for Christmas ... in fact here's a couple new ones ... and I never thought about making them for weddings until someone approached me at the last show and inquired if I had any.  Needless to say, I got right on that topic!

Here are a few challenges I'd like to share these creations with:
 Clear It Out Challenge - Gift (Hershey Bar Pouches..surprise inside and used up scrap papers)
 Creative Craft Challenge - Special Occasion - Not Birthday (Wedding Money Cards)
Die Cuttin Divas #89 - Anything Goes (Hershey Bar Pouches)
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - O Christmas Tree (Hershey Bar Pouches)
LEJ Designs - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes

Thanks for letting me share a few of my creations with you today!  
Guess I'd better get back to work ... time's a wasting!!
