ABC ‘W’ for Wrapping ,,,,,,

Good Morning all :-)  Did you know that it is only 40 days before Santa comes down the chimney !! I am sure that most of you will be well under way with cards but have you thought about the wrapping and packaging of gifts ?? NO !! Well have we got THE challenge for you over on the ABC Christmas Blog  !!

'W'for WRAPPING !! 

  so make some wrapping paper, a gift box or bag. You could also make a card using an image that is wrapping Christmas gifts if you prefer :-)

We have 2 fabulous sponsors for this challenge
The lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky entrant
A $15 voucher to spend in her store
Simon Says Stamp
1st Prize = 3 digi stamps
2nd Prize = 2 digi stamps

I decided to make a quick and easy pillow box on my Silhouette Cameo,, LOVE this machine !! :-)

I will link all the products at the bottom of this post ,,, I did feel guilty about making the box in about 5 minutes so thought I would make a matching card to go with it :-)

I have just bought this Snow Much Joy set from Hero Arts and LOVE it :-) There is a matching die to cut out the larger snowman,,, that I FORGOT to order with it !!!! It is now on its way ,,,, but it was easy to cut out and I used a Memory Box Twigs and Berries die for the arms  :-) The paper is from an old My Minds Eye Christmas Glitter pack that is discontinued.
I used the snowflakes in the set to emboss a background and used the emboss resist technique and distress inks to create the sky :-)

Thanks for looking , the DT have made some gorgeous packages so please hop on over to the ABC Christmas challenge blog to see them :-)
