holiday card and snowman soup!

Snowman soup, i bet you are wondering what the heck i'm talking about, i know my hubby did when i told him that's what me and the kids had done that day!
Snowman soup is just a fun way to give away little packets of hot chocolate - even better if you have white hot chocolate! I made a few white ones for the girls back at my old job and i made some with a homemade hot chocolate mix (found a recipe online) for my hubby's employees.

the boys were excellent helpers. i would put the hot chocolate mix in the baggie then Brady would put in some mini chocolate chips and Charlie would finish it by adding some mini marshmallows. (of course they had fun eating the chips and marshmallows! ) don't worry people i made sure they washed their hands before. Then you finish it off by stapling a piece of colorful cardstock, punching two holes, passing a ribbon through and attaching a candy cane stick and the snowman soup poem (there are different variations you can find on the web) i used this one: When the weather outside is frightful,

Snowman Soup can be delightful.
May it warm your spirit and your soul.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

When you feel a chill or 'burrrrrr',
Use the peppermint stick to stir.
Add hot water and sip it slow.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.

here's another card i made with the Collage Press papers!

don't forget to drop by on the 18th for my announcement!

Thanks for stopping by,
