Hi Ladies! I hope you all had a great weekend! We had some unexpected friends & family visit from out of town :) That surely was a nice surprise! Of course, that means visiting & eating & not much time for crafting. I am a bit late on entering in some challenges, but I sure had fun making my much needed Gingerbread Boy / Peppermint Gift set :) That's what matters most to me! I have a lot to prepare for this week in my crafting world - this Wednesday, November 25th is the PTI Monthly Blog Hop, Saturday, November 28th, I will be the Hostess for the Just Us Girls template challenge & Sunday, November 29th, I will be the the Hostess at the Pile it On! challenge site. If you get a chance, please don't be afraid to stop by to take a peek and see what I have created :) I made this Gingerbread Boy / Peppermint Gift set to have on hand :) I combined several challenges - in no particular order 1. For color inspiration: The Colorthrowdown #69, CTD69 2. For sketch inspiration: CPS142 & 3. Pile it On! - Use Rub Ons
challenge. If you haven't already, stop by all of these sites to see what the DT's have created for inspiration! I would love to know if you like Gingerbread or chocolate covered peppermint sticks? Be Sweet!
I stamped the background paper with an oldie but goldie SU set that I bought gently used at a rubber stamp show. One stamper's junk is another stamper's treasure! :)
One of my ALL time favorite My Timeless Templates designed by the amazingly talented Lauren Meader is the Fold N' Go. It is the perfect size treat box!!! It holds a generous amount of treats & it is big enough to decorate!
Did you find the Rub On? Amongst all the stamping - there is a Rub On! OK - it is the little tree image in the center of all the HAPPY HOLIDAYS tags! I rubbed it on a piece of cs, punched it out using a small EK Success circle punch then adhered it to the tag! That is the first Rub On I ever used - of course, they were one of those items that I just HAD to have but NEVER used! I bet you have some of those items too?
