Happy Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends and I have LOTS to cover today so please stay tune.
First up ....... Our fearless leader Tracy at CraftJunkieToo ( asked her Design Team Member (that would be ME!) to create a project that represents COLD and use cold colors and images ..... so ...... here's what I created ......
I grabbed my Big Shot and the Box Number 2 Die and cut out two of these boxes with some Brushed Silver Cardstock.
I achieved that look and feel of "COLD" to my Number 2 Box when I grabbed my SnowBurst Textured Impressions Folder and used that folder only on the center section of my box.  I used Sticky Tape to adhere both of my boxes together - Creating a fun little tote holder that I was able to fill full of yummy Coffee for Two.
I layered two tags together to create my FUN gift tag!
All that I had left to do was fill my holder with some yummy Starbucks VIA packets and add a packet of shortbread cookies.  BUT WAIT just wouldn't be complete without a sampling of super yummy "CHOCOLATE" and these chocolate covered cherries were just what I was looking for.
Here's a closer look at my constructed tote.  I added a sparkly snowflake to all four sides and finished it all off by wrapping the tote with a retired piece of Brocade Blue Ribbon.
All the pieces combined makes me want to grab some hot water and a couple coffee mugs and curl up on the sofa and pop a movie in and RELAX!
The VIA coffee packets will surely warm up anyone who might have spent a little too much time out in the cold.
I'm thrilled with the way this little treat caddy turned out.  It was a Super quick and Super fun project that came together pretty quickly.  Hope my favorite friends back in Wisconsin enjoy this little caddy ......... as the weather is getting colder and the only thing that might need to be changed up is to switch out the coffee and make my next caddy with hot chocolate. 

Please head over to Tracy's blog ( to link up to all the rest of my fellow CJToo Design Team Members.
