*Merry Christmas* Tree Duo & Altered Tin

Happy Friday!!!

I picked up the cute KI *Merry Christmas* paper the other day...how could I resist the pink? It teamed up perfectly with Stampin' Up's Pixie Pink and the sweet polka dot paper is KI dp that I've had for years! I stamped the A Muse MB Tree Duo in Versafine Onyx Black and then tied some black May Arts ribbon around the belly band. I'm all for non-traditional Holiday colors!
{Hey you A Muse Fans...what does the MB stand for?}
I'm trying to come up with quick, cute and useful gift items....I altered this tin with some fabulous Amy Butler dp. I tried to stay with paper that had green in it..why? Inside the tin is Tazo Zen Green Tea Bags...aha! What do you think?
The tag is from Packaging Specialties...The cup is from SU's Like it a Latte and the sentiment is A Muse.
A nice change from the usual gift card or chocolate treats I'd put in the tins...

I have a super busy weekend....my girl is having her last soccer game tomorrow...we have 2 more games for the boy. I'm looking forward to our Gift Fair this weekend but hope to be better prepared for the one in December :)
I'll be back on Monday...have a super weekend peeps!

    (ps: if i had to guess, in this context, i'd say "MB" stood for "merry & bright"...but probably it's the designer's initials??)

  25. Gorgeously decorated tin! I also like how you stamped the trees on polka dot paper...like the effect! The MB stands for Missy Ballance for her A Muse designs (http://missyballance.typepad.com/crafty_carnival/). She does a ton of crafty stuff on other mediums, too...besides being a real sweet gal:) Have a great day! Tinla
