A Suitable Stocking Treat

"...While visions of Smurfberries dance in her head...."

 This little treat box all ready to be filled with some Smurfy sweet treats.
I absolutely love the versatility of this Stocking die....one that might seem like you  might only use at Christmas.  I'm going to show you a few other ideas at the end of this post.
First, though, let me tell you about my Melon Mambo....polka dotted....magically sweet treat for Linz.
I cut two of the stockings on my Big Shot using the Stocking Die and then decorated them to "suit" her fancy.  (ba dum bum!)   Then I used them as the front and back of a 3D box.


I added a little piece of ribbon as a hanger so I can hang it on our tree.  I put in a piece of shiny, black tissue to spice it up and....VOILA!


I know she's gonna love it.   So.....do YOU have the Stocking Die?  Well this is the perfect time!  Keep reading.....You'll be GLAD you did!

As I've posted several times this month's Stampin' Up! Special during the month of October is AWESOME...When you take advantage of the Stampin' Up! opportunity you receive either $100 of SU! products of your choice for FREE or you can get the
BIG SHOT (a $100 value) absolutely FREE.  
Well....I'm sweetening the deal during the last six days that this special is available.  Why? Well because I love being able to share everything that Stampin' Up! has to offer.  I love their products....their generosity and everything they stand for.  Stampin' Up! has something called the "Statement of the Heart" that pretty much sums it all up.
Here's what it says....
 "To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments...in this we make a difference"

Now here's how I'm sweetening the offer....For anyone who takes advantage of the special...I will send you your very own Stocking Die for FREE (a $32.95 value)  If you'd like more info about this awesome opportunity, email or call me to find out more.
There's NO pressure from me or from Stampin' Up! to hold workshops etc.  You can do with it what you'd like....and get a great discount to boot!  
Cha CHING! :-)

Ok...so here are a couple other ideas that I found online for some stinkin' cute projects made with the Stocking Die.....  Ready??

Ok.....Now how can you resist THAT??  I know my mind is racing with new ideas!
Alrighty....I'm off to sleep now.  Tomorrow is going to be a happy day.  I get my cast off in the morning.  WAHOOOO!  Hopefully by this time tomorrow night I'll just be in a boot and walking around without crutches.  :-)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
