StampTV's CSS Alumni Treasure Chest Blog Hop

Welcome to the last stop on today's CSS Treasure Chest Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from the very creative and crafty Carolina.  Today's Treasure Chest Challenge is to make a Treat Holder with a Christmas or New Year's theme.  I have been wanting to make a cone treat holder for a long time so this was a prefect time for me to do so.  Now there isn't much stamping on my holder, just the sentiment, so I made a little 4" note card to match.  I used Very Merry Christmas from Gina K. Designs. Here is what I came up with.
Here is a picture of the treat holder.  The candies really pick up the light so there is a glare.

 

 Here is a picture of the card.

 
Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (December 13), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!
If you came here without hopping you can start at StampTV.  I hope you have enjoyed hopping through and can paly along with us.  Thank you for stopping by.

I am also entering in the following challenges
