I LOVE me some Cosmo Cricket!!

'Tis the Season for Giving...

And speaking of giving--I was floored when the doorbell rang during our dinner last night. I figured it was just something I had ordered for the holidays but nooooo....I was so excited to see the big white COSMO box---Inside: two paper packs (Be Good and Chemistry), ribbon, two chalkboard albums, chalkboard accents, buck naked ornaments, three holiday metallic rub on packs, two alpha rub on packs, and Sweet Mix rub-ons!

WOWZA! This was the blog candy I had won last week. The blog candy said that the winner would receive their choice of two paper packs and they would throw in some other coordinating embellishments. They went a bit above and beyond.....I felt like Christmas came early.

I have long loved Cosmo Cricket---my first love (and probably my favorite designer paper of ALL time) is Dutch Girl! So, when my my dh saw me come into the kitchen dancing around---he realized I was a bit excited and granted me a few minutes to play!!!

Here is a card I created with the Buck Naked Ornaments (Gotta LOVE a company who refers to a product as "Buck Naked"!), Be Good Paper Pack and the Jolly Rub-A-Dub-Dub Rub ons!

I covered the adorable mittens with the dp and added a little bit of ribbon trim. The sentiment is from the paper pack--I just trimmed around the shape and attached it...adding some button accents. I applied some rub-ons under the mittens and added the hemp tie and was done.

Beautiful was never so easy! This paper is GORGEOUS!

THANK YOU SO MUCH COSMO CRICKET!!!

Check out the Cosmo Cricket blog ---it is full of inspiring projects, funny stories, travels and giveaways! Right now they have a great blog series they are doing called Thrifty Gifty! They have some great ideas for some creative holiday gift giving!
