Holiday Treats...CR84FN8 47

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, December 19, 2010 @ 12:31 AM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all having a great weekend :) Thanks to all who played along with last week's challenge - there were 23 awesome projects!

Let's get to the randomly selected participant for the first CR84FN challenge of 2011 Guest Designer spot is:
Gladys, I would be honored if you would join along as my Guest for the CR84FN9 challenge beginning January 2nd :)
Next, I would like to introduce you to this week's Guest Designer:
You can see all of Suzanne's beautiful artwork at Suzanne's Stamping Spot.

Suzanne made this elegant card:
I love the bold and bright pink flowers that seem to jump right off the card.
Thank you so much Suzanne for joining me with this week's challenge... I hope you all visit Suzanne's blog: Suzanne's Stamping Spot for complete details and to share some love :)

I made some last minute gifts by filling 3 Ball mini jars with various tasty Holiday treats then dressing the jars up with a ribbon, tag and jar topper. I inked up a decorative image from Vintage Circles, Small with gray ink then using a S4-293 Lacey Circle die template, cut/embossed the stamped image and added a Poinsettia blossom made using a S4-219 Nested Poinsettia die template:
Jar #1 is full of mini peppermint sticks:
Jar #2 contains Peppermint Bark:
and Jar #3 is full of Peanut Brittle:
All 3 tags were made by combining a label from Very Vintage Labels No. 4 and cut/embossed using a S4-190 Labels Four die template.

Thank you for looking :) I hope you feel inspired to play along!

Now for the CR84FN Challenge details:

I would like to invite ONE randomly selected participant as the next challenge's Guest Designer :) I would like to keep things on an even playing ground so in order to do so, all you need to do is follow a few simple guidelines:

*Please display the CR84FN graphic with your post if you have a blog. Leslie graciously offers her photos as inspiration and I would like to give her proper recognition. My dear hubby Scott takes the time to create the graphic. Seeing the graphic makes it much easier to locate your entry on your blog.

*Please do not combine the CR84FN with any other COLOR challenges.

*Work must be original.

*You are more than welcome to submit as many creations as you like however, the number associated with your first entry will be the number considered in the random generator.

Once you have your project photographed and uploaded to your blog or on-line gallery, please link the URL to your entry on this post using Inklinkz. If you use an on-line gallery, please be sure to use CR84FN8 as the keyword and if you have a blog, please display the graphic so I can easily find your entry. I hope you come join along and Create For Fun!

*** Due to the Holidays, the CR84FN8 Challenge will run for 2 weeks*** 

Challenge ends: Saturday, January 1 9:00 PM Eastern US time.
