Gift Box & Card!


Finally...I have a chance to get to the scrapbooking room and create! Life just seems just so busy lately and I got so behind in all my challenges that I love to do...I also did not get to visit all the blogs. I really missed that, as that is were all my inspiration comes from! So now I hope to be back into the swing of things....until the housework piles up, dinners to make, baking to do, hockey games to get too, well you all know what I mean!!!




Here is my entry for the WinterWonderland Challenge! This week they wanted us to create a gift bag, a gift box or just decorate your own wrapping paper! Well I went for the gift box with a card to match. I used my just rite stamp set to make this project. I embossed the sentiment around the hot chocolate mug with white embossing powder, used my MS snowflake punch for the bottom of the box, papertrey ribbon with some silver ribbon I had hanging around! For the card I ran a small piece of white cardstock thru the cuttlebug using my snowflake template.
Well I am off to catch up on all the challenges at Magnolia Down Under which is to include buttons on your card, Just Magnolia which is grey & pink with black being optional, Cute Card Thursday is Buzz off...Black and Yellow combo and last but not least is Stamptacular's Challenge, they are calling for a tag!
