Use Your Stash Blog Hop - Around the House

Hello & welcome to the December "Use Your Stash" BlogHop and if you are coming from Wendy's Blog. You are on the right track. Now a Blog Hop is a circle that you can join and hop from blog to blog until you see all the great creations.

This month there are 7 "Close To My Heart" Independent Consultant participating and the theme is "around the house". Now there was no discussion on what "around the house" meant and there were several different thought on what that would mean as it turn out, so there is not much telling what you may see.

What I came up with was Snowman Tea lights. I had been seeing these and just loved them. I had picked up some little tea lights that I used for some table decorations for table decoration during a Christmas Dinner at my church. And I'm giving a few of them to some friends at a Christmas Party this week. 

Most supplies are  "Close To My Heart"
Paper body - White Daisy Cardstock
Buttons & hat band - Bronze Glitz™ Glitter Gel
ribbon - small pieces of retired CTMH  ribbon
I stamped "Merry Chirstmas" using the stamp in Workshops On The Go® Pear & Partridge Cardmaking Kit under the last button.
The Acrylix® stamp makes it see easy to curve the stamp to fit the circle
circles were cut with Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection 3 sizes 1 1/4", 2 1/2" & 3"
I used Liquid Glass to attach the light to body and Tombow® Adhesive to attach 2 circles together for the body.
I wish I could remember all the places where I have seen these little lights to give them credit because as  I tell everyone I have NO original ideas. LOL. 
Now Thanks for stopping by but before you hop over to Tabbi's Blog please leave my a comment, Yes, I read everyone & love to hear from YOU!
