Sassy Tussie- Matchbox- 10 Days

Ok I cannot believe it has been 2 weeks since I said I'd be back here soon with a giveaway! Man time really does fly by when you're having fun. HaHa Well with Christmas being "10 days" away I have been busy busy busy... We just got home from visiting family up North and my goodness it is getting cold over there! I don't miss that, that's fer sure! :)
So here is a cute little Tussie Mussie I created a about two weeks ago. Barely posting it now, I know. Did this cutie up with Sassafraslass newest Holiday collection Life At the Pole. I adore the greens in this line! They are so bold and delicious! I can't get enough of that green color!
And not too many days later I whipped up this sweet matchbox. The perfect size to slip in a gift card... Or two... You can see in the pictures that I had the same idea going with the layered flowers. I LOVE doing this. And it's so easy when you have things like Sassafras' blossoms and cardstock stickers and buttons! They were meant for layering I just know it! HaHaHa I also used a Sassafras label stamp. I "heart" Sass stamps!
Here are a few Christmas ornaments I created for the Pink Paislee Blog. We did the 12 Days of Christmas with ornaments. Check it out to see details and a ton of ornaments the other girls created! So fun!
Ok well I still owe a giveaway... I will post a picture sometime tomorrow, but for now let me give you a hint... Think ribbons from my Etsy shop, think Vintage papers, thinks thickers, and frillies, and ooooo my fave Prima Journaling notes, and maybe some handmade stuff... Who knows what else I'll find to throw in?! Ha. Well you know how it works just leave a comment here and if you don't know what to say tell me where you've been getting most of your Holiday inspo from...
Okay here is a picture. :) Sorry it took a little longer.
Smooches~
