Challenge 165 - Boxing Day!

In Canada today we celebrate Boxing Day...

Despite its name, Boxing Day, which is celebrated on December 26 in Great Britain, has nothing to do with pugilistic competition. Nor is it a day for people to return unwanted Christmas presents. While the exact origins of the holiday are obscure, it is likely that Boxing Day began in England during the Middle Ages.
Some historians say the holiday developed because servants were required to work on Christmas Day, but took the following day off. As servants prepared to leave to visit their families, their employers would present them with gift boxes.

So I am asking everyone to put a box on your project... or a square!  Just a nice easy challenge for this day of unwinding or crazy shopping as some like to do.

LRW #161--Trim the Tree

Hello, Tammy here this week.  I realized this weekend, as I was putting up our tree and decorating the house, that it's (well now) less than a month before Christmas --yikes!-- I know!! . . . So why not make this week's challenge about trees!!  That's right. . .

 I'm challenging you to use a tree on your project (but I'm not limiting you to a Christmas tree)

I have two little projects for you. They worked as a set I gave as a hostess gift this
 weekend--a card and wine bottle tag.

Here's a close up on the card:

 Here's the tag:

Lots of glitter on both--tis' the season!

Check out what the rest of our tree-rific DT has created,
then please link up your tree-mendous creation below!

Good Morning!  Today's challenge is all about texture!  I love working with embossing folders, so that is my challenge for you.  Pull out your embossing folders and create something with texture.

I decided it was time to get going on my Christmas cards, so I made up this pretty card using an embossing folder and an ornament cut with my Silhouette.

Challenge # 158 - Coloring!

Dee here...

It is my turn this week and since I had not used my copics to color in a while, I thought it would be a good idea to do that, and make everyone else color with me!

I choose an image from a stamp set a friend designed... she is uber talented!
