25 Days Christmas Countdown: Recipe Clothespin Holder + Giveaway
Sorry been missing it's been so busy here so much for us to do yet before Christmas; lots of gifts to finish making, Christmas cards, been up to our eyeballs in wrapping gifts and my poor pup also decided it was the time to get sick so off to the vet. When he is sick he is a bigger baby than I am. lol All he wants to do is cuddle. He finally ate this morning after not eating for 3 days. Thank goodness! Good thing I am not hosting this year. lol
I don't think I will get through all the 25 Days before Christmas now as planned so looks like this will be going after Christmas. lol This will effect when I mail out the prizes. They will be mailed out after the 25 Days Christmas Countdown is done so postage doesn't kill me. Thanks for understanding!

Purchase these two items together and save 10%. I LOVE this set the images are soo stinkin cute!!!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:
- You will need 1 large wood clothespin. Paint it a coordinating color; I used White Delta Craft Paint.
- Cut the Candy Cane Designer Series Paper to fit the clothespin and mod podge it. I applied several coats then sanded it.
- Stamp the Gingerbread Man from Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set in Early Espresso onto Whisper White card stock and punch it out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. Add some Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine and Brights Enamel Shapes (Real Red) to the gingerbread man. Attach with a Stampin' Dimensional.
Of course the recipe had to be for Gingerbread Cookies one of my favorites!
Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

- Add some Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and Early Espresso card stock to the bottom of the Whisper White card stock.
- At the top add some Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape.
- Glue the Whisper White card stock to a piece of Real Red card stock and slide into the clothespin at the top.
