Gifts & Decorations SDD Style

 Hi crafters and followers, how are you all?  Is your christmas shopping on track or are you all organised and finished,  mine is about half way done.  Will be giving my last feed to my christmas cakes this weekend all ready for decorating.  Christmas tree is up and decorated, house looks lovely even if I do say so myself.  I do so love Christmas, all of it mind you I don't get worked up over it I have to say.  I suppose all the years I worked all over christmas has taught me how much I love it now.  Plus I only have one more week to go at work and then I finish until 6th Jan, wow, I can't wait.  Some major crafting will be done most definitely.
So my post today is my DT sample for SDD Challenge.  I have actually made three crackers and boxes for me, hubby and mom on the big day which will be table pressies.  Not sure what I will be putting in the boxes but it will be edible and yummy.
Shopping List
Tonic Cracker Die
Tonic Sentiment Die
Poinsettia Stamp
Wow embossing powder - Blue Glitz
I made the cracker using the Winter Wonderland Papers, put in a cracker snap and joke together with a Lindt chocolate - mmmmm.
The box I made using a template I had made whilst at a Jayne Nesterenko workshop a few years ago and is made from one piece of A4 card.
The flowers are poinsettia stamps which I embossed using wow embossing powders - blue glitz.
