Christmas hostess.

Aaaahhhh, Friday :)  So last week I posted the hostess gift for my sister and I told you I was working on another one.  This one will be given around Christmas, but I didn't want it to look too Christmasy, I wanted it to have a more wintry look.

I assembled this one exactly the same way as last weeks, coffee beans and all :)  The only thing different is the embellishment on the front.

It's kind of hard to tell, but I die cut the snowflake charm with my Cricut and then smooshed it face down in my Versamark pad.  I sprinkled it with Zing Aqua embossing powder...twice.  It got a little messy, but I love how thick and shiny the snowflakes are.  I added a couple of rhinestones for some extra sparkle!

Do you  have big plans this weekend?  I'm going to try and complete the mammoth task of wrapping the gifts (feeling very motivated and I need to strike while the iron is hot).  Tomorrow, we have put a coupon in the girls Advent Calendar good for a trip to the movies with mom and dad.  I'm really excited about that!

I really hope you have a wonderful weekend :)  Thank you so much for coming by today and I'll see you soon!
