Happy Saturday! Boy is it looking like fall here in Maine. We've had such a dry summer that the leaves started drying and falling early this year thus resulting in less color for us to "awe" over. We usually have an abundance of "leaf peepers" visiting our state each year and some will surely be disappointed.

I'm so glad you are visiting today. We have a challenge at Create with Connie & Mary's Holiday Edition for our subscribers. Our challenge for this week was to create a favor! Do you have lots of empty embellishment containers laying around? That's what I decided to use for today:

If you keep scrolling you'll see what else is in store for you inside this container:

A one serving size of hot chocolate! I've included 4 tablespoons of hot chocolate & mini marshmallows mix and topped it off with a peppermint candy!

Project Supplies:
  • DSP: Candlelight Christmas
  • Cardstock: :Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler
  • Inks: Lucky Limeade, Pretty In Pink, Early Espresso
  • Accessories:Baker's Twine, 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Holiday Collection Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals, Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details
  • Stamps: Sensational Season, Itty Bitty Banners
