Happy Christmas Eve!!!

Until one feels the spirit of Christmas, there is no Christmas. All else is outward display--so much tinsel and decorations. For it isn't the holly, it isn't the snow. It isn't the tree, not the firelight's glow. It's the warmth that comes to the hearts of men when the Christmas spirit returns again. -Anonymous
Hope you all are having a Wonderful Christmas Eve and that your chores are done, your food made, your gifts wrapped and that you were not forced to enter any kind of shopping establishment today!
My food is half done, my gifts mostly wrapped other than some little stuff that can wait until after the kiddo is snug in his bed. My house is as clean as it is going to get and I didn't leave the house today! All in all I think it turned out better than I had feared. :) I even had time to sit down and decorate a little box of Chocolate Raspberry Sticks for my Father. I used this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge as a jumping off point, working with Red, Green, White and Holly (my Favorite Christmas motif.) My colors ended up being more muted than the inspiration piece, but I am so happy with how this looks!!! This also works for this week's Stamp Something Challenge, Holiday Somethings.
I used an older Imaginisce paper for the wrap, then added a Zva Swirl, a Making Memories Holly Brad and a simple stamped sentiment. It was super easy and quick, but I don't think you would guess it by looking. ;)
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful, warm and safe Holiday!!
