Hi everyone,
Wow Christmas is almost here. I am so far behind. I'm still working on my little hand out gifts. I got my Candy Buttons done last night. They are so easy and tasty. Who doesn't like salty chocolate.

The recipe is so easy.
Preheat oven to 200*. 175* if your oven runs hot like mine. Line a cookies sheet with wax paper. Now lay out square pretzels. Top with either a Hershey Kiss or a Hershey Hug . Heat 4 to 5 minutes. The kiss should be soft but not completely melted. It should still have it's shape. Remove from oven and press a M & M into each. Let cool and package. So tasty.

I got the dogs gifts finished too. I call these Squeaky Buggers

They are made of fleece and has pockets sewn into them to holder squeaker. The small have one squeaker, medium has three squeakers and that large one has seven in it. The dogs just love them and I've sold a lot this season.

Tonight I'm making Gum drop fudge.

The card I have to show you today is for the Paper Players Challenge.
The challenge is to make a clean and simple project featuring snowflakes

I went way out of the box with my colors. I have to do that cause it drives my hubby crazy. He always say That's so wrong!! I used  Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, and Whisper White. Here's my card.

I used the Serene Snowflakes set from Stampin' Up and the prefect dots folder on the background. The sentiment is from the Angel Company. And what is the chances that I would have pearls in these colors and sizes.

I think my card came out very pretty and the Calypso Coral ribbon just finishes it off.

I hope you like all my projects . Thanks for stopping by.
