The Joy of Holiday Giving Blog Hop

Welcome to this co-hop with Die Cuttin’ Diva and Cut It Up. We are so glad that you joined us today and super excited to share our inspiration with you.  You should have made your way here from Anita's fabulous blog.  If you are just joining the hop be sure and start at the Die Cuttin' Diva's blog so you don't miss a thing :-)
Members of both teams are playing Secret Santa.  I will be sending this out next week as a surprise to one of them.  I hope she likes it. It's all about the joy of giving this holiday season!
I've used Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge for my project.  I haven't used this cart very much and it's perfect for treats.  I decided to put this cute little clothespin on it so she could open it easily.



 Ok, there isn't a treat in here yet.  I really want it to be a surprise...LOL!
