Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party- Christmas

Today is my design team post for Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!
This linky party theme is Christmas. The sponsor is a $15 gift card to KaDoodle Bug Designs and a set of Cardz TV stamps. The more you link up, the better chance you have to win.  Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

I created some Christmas milk carton treat containers.  They are really fun to make and decorate.  I'll probably make a few more and put candy or little gifts in them.  The carton base and sentiment mat is from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  The reindeer is cut from the Create a Critter 2 Catridge cartridge.   The Santa is from Miss Kate Cuttables.  The snowman is from Too Cute By Jessica.  Those adorable little clothes pins are from Michael's.  I loved them so much I picked up 6 packs of them while they were on sale.  I used the My Mind's Eye "The Merry Days of Christmas" 6x6 pad for the papers.  The Happy Holidays is a little wooden stamp I've had forever but don't remember where I got it.  And then I just added some bling and googly eyes.  I hope to see everybody link up your Christmas projects!  Thanks for looking and have a great day!
