For my Blog Candy at Cricutcraftingrammy I will be selecting a winner from all my blog hop comments this month.  So make sure you have left a comment on December 2, 9, 10 and  the 15th.  That will give you four chances to win.  I will draw the random winner on the 17th using  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate from Michaels or Joanns (your choice)

Before I share my project I would like to ask you to check out my friend Brenda's blog.  A friend of Brenda's nephew who is 12 years old has been diagnosed with cancer.  He will be starting chemo and she is asking for anyone who wishes to send him cards to get him through this tough time.  So if you have any extra cards or would like to make one please check this out and join me in sending Chris a card.  Thanks you so much. 

For the hop today, I've created a Rosette Christmas Tree
Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut Instructions 
For this tree I cut three each at 11.5 long of 3.5, 3.25, 3.0, and  2.75 
These are then scored at 1/2 inch with a scoreboard and folded accordian fold.  
Then glue the three pieces together to perform a ring and glue down to a circle

I then cut two each at 11.5 of 2.5,  2.25, 2.0, 1.75. and 1.50  and scored at 1/2 inch and made rosettes 
For the top I used Tim Holtz rosette die cut with my Cuttlebug there are 3 sizes.
These are automatically scored at 1/4 inch.  
No Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge 
Cut 12 inch strips of paper at the same sizes above.  You can leave edges straight or punch with a punch to decorate edge.  
I then stacked the rosettes by size and decorated with glitter, snow, snowflakes and a snowflake garland I had in my stash.
