candy bags

Made these up for craft sales using our Cellophane bags (124134) also found in the Holiday mini.
Hope every one is getting in gear for all the holiday rush. Here with
little to no snow it is kind of hard to do maybe once the calender changes to December. I made stocking for my children and grandchildren so with the arrival of Alexis that is what I have been doing the last few days so she will have one hanging as well. Will post when it is done.

Punches are what made this card what it is... and it is easy to do..

Lest we forget Nov 11

Today is Remembrance day both in Canada and the USA. Our Canadian Flag flies in the back yard and in the front yard the US Flag. I attended many a service as my father was a vet and my son and daughter both were cadets for years.

Yesterday was quite nice and you can see we have no snow yet, but my husband brought out the snowmen and started to do the house for the holidays. So much easier when it's not so cold..

Have a great day and remember our soldier here and a far, with out them we would not be us!!!
