Enjoy a Ski Holiday This Christmas

It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since we first met our mouse friend in the Cookie Cutter Christmas series.  But 2021 saw the release of the tenth ornament in the series, so it has to be that long.  This entry is another winner.

This year, our mouse friend is going skiing.  Yes, my first thought was he’d already done that, but then I remembered the first in the series was sledding, not skiing.  Anyway, he’s smiling as he heads down the slope.  As you look closer, you can see the candy inspired elements of the ornament.  Behind him are mountains made of ice cream cones.  He’s skis have a peppermint red and white stripe pattern.  His poles just might have Lifesavers on the end.  The rocks look like hard candy, and the snowman he is skiing by has some more candy on him.

Now, you may be saying to yourself – this all looks great, Mark, but where does the Cookie Cutter come into play?  The scene I described earlier is contained in a snowman shaped cookie cutter.  And that’s why I love this series so much.  The way the scenes fit into and compliment the outer frame is always so creative.

This particular snowman has a rounded bottom, so that means the ornament doesn’t sit out very well.  Instead, it rolls to the side.  But you’ll find that it does hang straight.

If you are looking for the series marker, you’ll find it on the back of the ornament under the handle for the cookie cutter.  Hallmark artist Nina Aube really does think of everything.

And it is the details like the handle and the sweets hidden in the scene that continue to make this ornament series so much fun.  And they are always so cute, too.

Whether you are already a fan of the series or just looking for something different for your Christmas tree, you’ll enjoy the tenth Cookie Cutter Christmas ornament.
