Are they M&Ms????

They certainly are!  I have used the Sweet Treats Cups again, filling it with M&Ms to make the Christmas ornament.  As soon as I saw the Sweet Treats cups in the new Summer Mini Catalogue I knew I had to make a card like this.  I am really pleased with how it came out, however I will not be making more of these for my own Christmas card stash.....I ate way too many M&Ms just making this one card!!

The tree branch was made using the single tree in the Lovely as a Tree stamp set, stamped in three different greens to give it some texture.  Our new 1 3/8" Circle Punch co-ordinates perfectly with the Sweet Treats cups so it was really easy to get the cup inserted in the card.....getting the M&Ms out again will be another matter entirely though!!

Stay tuned to see what other fantastic new products we have in the new Summer Mini catalogue!
