Winter Themed Projects

I am featuring three winter themed projects using the new BoBunny Midnight Frost Designer Paper.

First up is a skater card which I just love!  SU’s silver cording worked perfectly for the laces.  This stamp set is from Papertrey Ink.

Next is a 3D item; a treat bag using SU Buckaroo Blue and BoBunny Midnight Frost paper.  This is filled with chocolate ... yum!


My last project is a tin filled with delicious herbal teas.  There is nothing like a hot cup of tea in the winter to warm you up!

I’m also offering some blog candy to celebrate (see below)!  All you need to do to enter the drawing is leave me a comment on this post by 12:00 midnight on Sunday, January 9, 2011 letting me know which of my projects you liked the best.

I will select a winner on Monday, January 10, 2011 using random.org and will give the winner 48 hours to contact me via email.  If you prefer, include your email address with your comment and I'll contact you if you're the winner.

Hi Donna! Oh each one of your projects is wonderful! I can hardly name a favorite but the gift bag with the chocolate inside would have to be the one I'd pick in a grab bag. Love your design and matching colors! Love the tea set too... a GREAT gift idea! Thanks for all the work you did to share with us on this hop and your basket is absolutely AMAZING! I have long drooled over Longaberger and this one is just fabulous!!! Thanks for the offering!

Perfect projects for this time of year ... hot tea and chocolate to keep you warm and happy after skating. Gorgeous Donna! My fav ... hmmm ... that is hard one. I love them all but your treat bag really jumps out at me ... maybe because there is chocolate inside.

Donna, Hi! I am not entering your blog candy, just wanted to lend my support as a fellow blogger...your projects are divine!! I love that you kept a blue theme and the last tea tin catches my eye! I may have to invest in those dies!! Wonderful job and great projects!!

MiamiKel said...

Oh Donna, what terrific projects you have created for us to see this weekend - I love the soft blue hues of your projects - everything left me feeling so nostalgic :) I used to ice skate as a young girl and it brought back fond memories how you created such a stunning card showcasing the skates :) It's impossible to pick a favorite as your sweet tea creation is superb! (and not to mention your blog music - I have it clicked at the bottom as I continue the hop!) TSMFS - have a blessed weekend!

Donna, I'm back for the second time. Early this morning I left a comment but had a feeling it didn't post. Anyway I was telling you how much I love all three of your projects. The skates are adorable. The bag for chocolates is yummy. And I want to case the tin for tea. I hope you don't mind. Blog hopping with you has been fun.

Crafting Butterfly Creations said...

So cute. Thank you for sharing.

MollyD said...

Are you kidding me? Stamping and Longaberger together?! Awesome! I am loving the cards and two other projects - the reindeer is one of my favorite! The sweetheart basket is super cute too! I still love the small square one from 02 I believe!

Susan Aten said...

Well, all your projects are beautiful! I think I like the Tea Tin best. I have a few Tea friends that the tin would be perfect for! Thanks!

ashjoy said...

Beautiful projects!

Kristie said...

Wonderful projects, Donna! I really love the skating card :)

Anne Marie said...

Wow! Gorgeous projects! The ice skate card is awesome and the laced up boots are a stunning accent. Love it! :)

OMG Donna! All your projects are FANTASTIC! I just love your blog and can't believe you are raffling a Longaberger basket - Amanda

Chef Mama Lori said...

I LOVE the shimmery shades of blue and silver! What a fun way to warm someone's heart in the middle of winter!

misstreez said...

Love the frosty look of your cards with your choise of colours and embellishment. Skating here is such an alien idea (we'd only have a handful of ice rinks in the whole country) and something we'd only see in the movies or olympics maybe. Fun card. What I like the best about the second project is the deer stamped in open space. Really makes it look like there is lots and lots of snow. The project I like the best is your winter warmer, the tea gift. Lovely labeling and the embossed teacup is beautiful.

Peggysuez said...

I keep meaning to make one of those little tins and never have. I like the bag with the deer, it looks fabulous on all that white space. Nice job, and great inspiration! Thanks for sharing.

Francie G. said...

Fabulous projects, Donna! Love all the designs, papers and colors! Beautifully done!

nitestamper said...

Such wonderful projects, so soft and pretty.
Love them all!!!!!
Tfs:)

Joyce said...

Love your blog. Love the nice music also. I'm loving the projects here, anything with tea is a good thing and I might have to make some for fellow tea-drinkers in my life. Enjoy.
