Christmas Tree Candy Treats!!

Wow, Life has certainly been busy for me...
I am sorry I haven't posted anything lately.The last 2 mths has been very
busy for me.I am president of the Ladies Aux for the Fire dept. and we have had numerous caterings to do.That is how we fund raise for the dept.
We have had 2 to 3 caterings each week since the first wk. of Nov, with Christmas parties and luncheons.Any spare time I've had has been spent at the fire hall.
We finished off the last catering last friday and then we had our party for the dept.So glad all the partying is over with.I believe we went to 5 Christmas parties.
In between all that stuff, I had to get my house in order to decorate and I took
part in a cookie swap.Most all the women at the store took part.There were 14 of us in the swap.Mmmmmm, I got some delicious cookies.
The last few days I have been back in my scrap room working on a few
christmas gift items.I made these treats for some of my co-workers.

These Candy treats are so cute and easy to make.I found them on
Andrea Walford blog . Her blog is amazing, she has so many neat projects I want to try.

For more of my friends I added the candy skewers to a mug with a
pkg of Hot chocolate and more goodies.Such a cute gift.

I also made a few of these little cards to attach to the bags.
I used my new curved Rectangles Nesties to make the cards.
Sshhhhh, don't tell Dh ,lol, they are a Christmas gift.
The poinsettia stamp is from a set I picked up at WM.
Happy Holidays is Verve sentiment.

Thanks for visiting.
Merry Christmas
