Hot Chocolate Tree Box...BBTB Challenge

This past weeks challenge over at the Bitten By The Bug was to use the Tree Box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More...I decided to make a Hot Chocolate Tree Box filled with homemade Hot Chocolate mix and mini marshmallows...mmmmm...

I used CDS and stretched out the tree box as large as I could on a 12x12 mat using the Tag Window feature. But I have to tell you, these shaped boxes on TBBM can be a little difficult to get lined up correctly and I'm not sure if it's because I'm stretching it out (even though it gets stretch out evenly). Does anyone have this issue?

And I finally got to use this really cool CTMH Coffee Shop stamp set that I got a while ago that I've been dying to use! Which I'll definitely being using for some more Holiday projects and cards...

This is available on my Etsy store here.

And go over the Bitten By The Bug site to see all the amazing things the out DTs did with this challenge!







Hot Chocolate Mix:
-PP: DCWV Christmas Glitter Stack 2007
-Stamps: CTMH Coffee Shop

In response to your question.....YES - the Easter card is from WILD CARD and each card comes with it's matching envelope - it's an AWESOME cart - you NEED this one LOL If you go the the Cricut website on the INFORMATION screen you can see the book.
