Cringle Mingle card candy and a nite light holder

Yesterday was my Cringle Mingle for my downlines and hostesses and as I'd been in Plymouth all week I was still rushing around at the last minute trying to finish things up as they were walking in the door. I therefore didn't get any pix of what I'd prepared for them (sorry about that). Each guest got a sheet of card candy, a little box of chocolates and a package of snowman soup. Luckily I'd made extra card candy for hostess gifts in the new year so I can at least show you that, lol. I got the idea for this from some of the demos that went to convention and did a card candy swap.

Stamp sets: Darling Dots (hostess level 1), Fun and Fast Notes (for sentiments)
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Ruby Red, Old Olive
Punches: Eyelet Border, Scallop Circle, 1-3/8" Circle, 1-1/4" Circle, Word Window, Large Star, Tag, Small Tag
Other: Gold Elastic Cord, Buttons, Gold Brads, Fine Galaxy Glitter

We had an open crafting session with everyone doing their own thing but one project that we did all have a go at together, was to make a nite light holder, following this tutorial over at ILWS. Here's mine.

Stamp sets: Season of Joy, Scandinavian Season
Cardstock: Old Olive, Vellum
DSP: Holiday Treasures (retired)
Ink: Old Olive, Versamark
Punch: Eyelet Border
Other: White EP, Battery Tea Light

The battery operated tea light ensures that I won't burn the house down.

Now back to christmas card duty ...
