Our challenge this week at Cooking With Cricut was to create something Christmas-y that did not have the traditional red and green included. You could use one or the other, but not both. Do you know that in all of the 100's of sheets of scrapbook paper I
hoard own that I only have one or two pieces of holiday paper that has neither red or green on it! You have to understand . . . I'm a pretty traditional girl when it comes to Christmas. You won't see pink or purple or turquoise or any other wild color on my tree! I love golds, silvers, reds, burgundies, greens, blues and shades of white and ivory. So this challenge took me a little while to wrap my mind around.
This weekend we were still unpacking boxes in our living room and sun porch so that we could have the house looking nice for the holidays. One of the boxes that I unpacked had two metal milk cans that measure about 6 inches tall. (Our friend, Kelly, gave them to me following a banquet she catered -- they were part of the table decorations. Kelly is always bringing me neat containers or leftover decorations that she thinks I might be able to repurpose or use in some way!) For some reason, that little milk can stuck in my subconscious and I thought about it periodically Sunday as we decorated the house for Christmas. When we hung up the stockings our daughter, Demi said "Mom, I hope that I get Hershey's kisses in my stocking this year!" WHAM! All of a sudden I knew what I was going to make for our challenge this week!!!
