Marshmallow Snowman and Thank you card set

Happy Tuesday!  I have a few things to share with you!  Today is Ariel's last day of school before Christmas break!  I had so many ideas running through my head on what to make her teacher but with all the sickness over here I didn't get a chance!  So I decided to go with a card set.  Coming up with a design that suited her teacher was hard with a foggy mind when your not feeling well since I don't see her teacher liking a very girly set of cards or the color pink.  (And friends lately I am in the mood to play with hot pink but haven't got the chance!)  So on Sunday night after our crazy crazy day I finally got inspired and made her these:

I stamped the silhouette flower by Hero Arts on cream cardstock with Tumbled Glass by Tim Holtz on 4 and Chestnut Roam on the other 4.  I made 8 cards, 4 of each color and stamped with 2 different thank you sentiments by HA also.  I really like the touch of the button!  I am also glad that I made the card purses early that I shared a few weeks ago, I gave one of those to the Education assistant in her class.   Here it is all "wrapped up" I made a simple tag for it:

Last night I was online searching around when I saw this and had to make them!  Nevermind being sick and all.  I had another more papercraft idea in my head but never got a chance to make it.  When I saw this snowman idea I got so excited.  I asked Chad what he thought since he was going to be helping me make it! (little did he know...) And I ran to the store and bought supplies.  Here is what I made for each of the kids in Ariel's class:
Basically I put 3 marshmallows on skewers dipped them in melted white chocolate wafers and added mini m&m's for the eyes, nose and buttons.  From the girl who I got the idea she made earmuffs too, I was going to but I couldn't find twizllers pullaparts only licorice laces so I gave up on that idea!  They look good but not perfect but hey it's my first try with anything like this!  And by the way they are sooo yummy!  :>  Here they are all wrapped up, wrapping them up took longer than it did making them!


I wrapped them up since I wasn't sure if they would stick together or if the kids would have time to eat them at the party.  I made simple tags too!  These were so fun to make and I plan on making more!  I am so glad that even though I didn't feel that well I made myself make them, I knew if I didn't I would totally regret it and I want to be the sort of mom who does these things.  

I have so many crafty ideas for gifts so I am hoping they work out, I want it to be a crafty Christmas!
