Christmas RAKs

I've seen these little treats before in catalogs, and recently saw Robyn, from My Pink Stamper make them also. Well, when I saw how easily she made them, I decided to give them a go, and I think I have a new favorite Christmas goodie. These are meant for my DS to give to the staff at his school, and if I time it right, I should have plenty for any last-minute gifts I may need. The recipe is: 2 cello bags. 1/2 C.  of instant Hot Cocoa mix in one bag. Cut bag to desired length, insert into 2nd bag, add 1/4 C. White chips, 1/4 C. chocolate chips, 1/2 C. Mini marshmallows, and tie bag with ribbon. I added tags made with TBBM, and JOTS. I also stamped the tags with a Christmas stamp. Paper is from Recollections. Ribbon from my stash. Super easy! Thanks Robyn for sharing these, they're lots of fun to make. Also, if you'd lie to now the cost-the add up to about $1.00/gift. I found the cello bags at Hobby Lobby for $1.99/25 bags.
YUM!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
