MFT boxes and Jen's sketch

Hey girls!
Hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend!
Yesterday I had my first Christmas SAS and it went very well! The girls finished their 10 cards in about 3 hours....we stop to eat and chat....stamp....eat...stamp some more! HAHA!
I'm off to curling in another 20 minutes but wanted to get my pics up here while blogger was being nice today.
This first box I made as a 2, 5, 7, 10 box. I cut it in half, then added a piece of acetate that was three inches tall and scored it at 2, 5, 7 and 10 as well. Not sure if I did it right but it looks okay I think? Brian bought me some Pink M & M's to put in it but then I realized they were peanuts...yucky! I'll stop at Walmart after curling to pick up the regular ones ;) I'm sure Brian won't have any issues eating the peanut ones...lol
This next tin is one of those tins from the $1 spot at Michael's. I had bought these probably a year ago now. Since I had my MFT Think Pink set out I thought I'd grab a pink one and dress it up a bit. I'll put a bag of Pink M & M's in this too!
On Friday night we went out to a local scrapbooking store to see if I could find the new Basic Grey Figgy Pudding Designer Paper. No luck....I did find this tree stamp though! Bonus! It's from Inkadinkado. It's hard to tell in the pic but I stamped it in Choc Chip craft ink and then embossed it with Clear EP.
THIS is Figgy Puddy DP on the card though! My wonderful husband checked out a couple other stores yesterday while I was at my SAS. He picked me up TWO packs of it! YAH!
This card was made with Jen from i{heart}2stamp's sketch. I think I may have flipped the DP. I really like it though! Thanks for another great sketch Jen!
Ok....I'm off to gather the curling stuff! See you all tomorrow!
