Share the Magic SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. This month we are featuring "Share the Magic" stamp set that includes a Santa, snowman, reindeer, Christmas tree, packages, candy cane, and a cute cuddle bear. It also has a "To" and "From" for tag making.

Now if you have come from Judy's blog you are on the right track. For my project I have made a gift bag/tag, a box of soup, and the coordinating card.

A box of Snowman Soup with soup instructions.

Open the card to see the soup instructions. "Share the Magic" just put the box of soup in a gift bag to share with someone special.

A little 2X2 gift bag tag attached to the bag.

And... a card to write a note and stick in the bag.
Now it's time to hop over to Shannon's blog and see what magic she had for you.
Snowman Soup
You've been real good this year,
Always glad to hear it!
With colder weather drawing near,
You'll need to warm the spirit.
So here's a little snowman soup,
Complete with stirring stick.
Add hot water, sip it slow,
It's sure to do the trick.
