Christmas is coming fast! STampin' Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stampin' Friends Blog Hop! We had a great hop last month and Cheryl Schuessler is our blog candy winner.  If you came from Sue's blog , thanks for continuing on the hop.
Stay tuned for details on this months blog candy. Tuesday was my birthday! Tombo took me shopping , it was strange to hear the Christmas music playing. It was November 14th! But the reality is Christmas is coming fast! I hope you have already started on on all your Christmas projects, but just in case you need some last minute ideas you have come to the right place. I have jumped on the Merry Cafe and Coffee Train this month. If you have been on facebook or very many blogs recently you have seen the coffee candles! They are everywhere. What a great little gift for a teacher, office mate, neighbor or as a table gift for a ladies luncheon or an open house. The ideas are endless. Aren't these cute?
You basically make a square box 2"x 2"x 2" and add a back piece. Decorate with Designer Series paper, stamp a greeting and your done. The back piece is doubled for strength, but can be made to hold a gift card.

The card I made is a gate-fold card. It was one of the first cards I ever made and I think it was what captured my interest. Take a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock and score at 2 1/8" from each end. The DSP is 2" x 5 3/8" from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper in the annual catalog. For the belly band I used a 1" strip of Red Glimmer paper folded around the card with the cup from the Coffee Cafe framelits cut out of the same paper using the opposite side.
This card really is a quick one to make that looks like a WOW card.
I hope these projects have inspired you to create some great Christmas projects to share with your family friends and those you can bless at Christmas time. IMPORTANT-
We have blog candy this month, so be sure to comment on each blog with the #SFBlogHop2017. Tell the blogger what you love about their projects. Also be sure to leave your email so we can contact you if you win! Keep hopping because you are going to love Andrea Tracy-Tucker's projects! Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by, please continue on the hop and Merry Christmas. Be blessed and have a great day.

 Love stamping in Dixe,
