Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 3- And A Giveaway!

Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

It is the 3rd day of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! Today I want to share a Christmas Coffee/Tea Loaded Envelope I have been working on for a crafty friend.
Also I have some Christmas Stamps to giveaway! For a chance to win them simply leave a comment on this post.

First here is my Coffee/Tea Theme Christmas Loaded Envelope.

I used Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes paper to cover the 6" x 9" envelope and for making little envelopes to hold tea packets and other goodies. I created a flower wand and altered some paper clips to go with the pretty pastel Christmas coffee/ tea theme. I finished by filling the envelope pockets with different goodies for my friend to use in her crafting.
These loaded envelopes are time consuming but a lot of fun to make and receive!!

And for the Giveaway I have these 3 Christmas Stamp Sets! 

To enter leave a comment on this post.
 I will announce the winner here on my blog December the 18th.
Winner must contact me by email with their mailing address.
Happy Creating!

'O' Christmas Tree

Wishing You Cheer All Year

 Today I am sharing a tag I made with gold glittered burlap over a manila tag.
 I found this glitter burlap and a pretty red 5" x 5' roll at my Family dollar, (wish I would have picked up more than 1 roll each while I was there!)
 I cut out a Christmas tree template I found on the web and adhered it to sturdy card stock and covered with designer paper from Kaisercraft. Added little gold stamens with tacky glue. Tree was adhered with pop up dots to tag.
Embellishing with gold trim, a vintage button and a little hand cut tag-stamping the holiday sentiment with jet black archival ink.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us!
They are green when summer days are bright,
They are green when winter snow is white.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
Your branches green delight us!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
You give us so much pleasure!
How oft at Christmas tide the sight,
O green fir tree, gives us delight!
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree,
You give us so much pleasure!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Forever true your colour.
Your boughs so green in summertime
Stay bravely green in wintertime.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree
Forever true your colour.
