Make and Take for my Open House and some Chit Chat

Well I made it through my first BPA meeting (barely)....
Yesterday was full of highs and lows....
The day started off good. I got my ironing done and put away then I realized I hadn't mailed a birthday parcel...oooppss....
I decided I wanted to do an open house but quickly realized my order won't be here in time so I'll have to make do with what I have....
Brian came home with our Oiler hockey tickets for this year...YAH! I'm excited...except now I need to find a sitter for the weekday games...lol
Then we had our BPA meeting....another low spot....but I'll leave it at that....
Onto this little picture!
On Saturday I am going to have all the girls that have ordered something from me in the past year to stop by and make this quick little set! I think it turned out quite well. I kept it simple enough that they should finish it in no time but be happy with the end result. The 2, 5, 7, 10 box can be found at SCS in the Resource Project Section. The little card is a 3 x 3. I thought it would be nice to give with the box.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Merry & Bright
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Whisper White
Inks: Black Stazon, Blue Bayou and Soft Sky
Accessories: Scallop Punch, Paper Piercer, Word Window Punch, 1 1/4"and 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Crop-a-dile for the ribbon holes, White Organdy Ribbon

These are just precious! I love the scallop border on the box flap, and the scallop circles around the snowmen!
