Tonight our home group from church met at Rio for our Christmas Dinner together!
Boy these guys are a wild bunch! I prepared some trivia games for us to play and for a PRIZE! You should have seen them FIGHTING over who won! All over a bag of Christmas Kisses! Did I mention this was my home group from CHURCH? Just kidding. I love these guys!
I made each family a symbolic gift. We have been talking lately about being examples to those around us so I thought this went along perfectly with our study!
And since our products coordinate so beautifully, I had to have a coordinating card and package! I already had the card, so I simply added some of the Frosted Papers to one of our kraft ring boxes.
I inked the edges of the box with our Colonial White pigment ink. Then added colonial white card stock and Frosted B&T papers - along with a sparkle flourish, silver shimmer trim, and some of our metal flowers.
I tied a big bow around the box using our Slate Satin Polka Dot ribbon. I LOVE this ribbon - and it's on the retiring list! (Stock up while you still can!!!) I stamped a sentiment from the Perfect Fit - Holidays stamp set and cut the shapes from the Artiste Cricut cartridge!
Inside is a Sparkling Icicles candle from Bath & Body with the "symbolic" part - Let your light shine!
Then Jes handed out her gifts! Oh my! This woman is amazing! She shot the deer, then canned it, then decorated the can and included a coordinating card that she made at club last month! She even had a recipe inside the card to use with the venison!!
I must admit I'm a little unsure about this - but I keep hearing how good it is…..so I'm determined to try it. And coming from Jes, it has to be good! Anyone want to stop by for dinner?
Merry Christmas! Hope your Christmas parties are just as much fun!
