Red Hot Christmas Party

Well it's been one of those weeks for me...stressful!  I'm sure no one else has ever had a week like that. lol  As I'm writing this I can feel myself starting to relax a little because I know my busy week is almost done.  Whew...I survived!  I've enjoyed each thing I've done, but I think I need to slow down just a little.  Now on to today's cards.  Last night was our Red Hots' Christmas party and it's always a lot of fun!  We had great food, lots of laughs, games and of course gifts.  And this year we decided on a $5 gift exchange for our gifts.  All I can say is I am not a shopper so I decided to give a box of chocolates and make a few cards.  My last post shows a card that I made using gold snowflakes.  Well after cutting out the large snowflakes I could not throw away my scraps like I usually do because the glimmer paper is so pretty and I felt wasteful if I did.  So I set them aside then starting thinking that maybe I could use them somehow on a few cards for my gift and these are the cards I came up with...

I also decided to enter these into the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge since it's a monochromatic challenge and these seem perfect for it.  Plus I've been lacking in the challenge department this week!  

Of course I had to have a box to store them in too. :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
