Xmas Box

Good Morning!  I can't believe how quickly XMAS is coming up!  I pulled out all my decorations this weekend.  I got all by my tree out.  I also got all my XMAS cards done but now I can't find envelopes.  Who would ever think that envelopes would be my problem!  I have been to 4 stores and noone has A4 envy's.  Now I just need to finish my shopping and plan XMAS eve.  I have my family over for drinks and snakes and we do a gift card yankee swap.  It is alot of fun.

Today is Tuesday so that means another great challenge at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.  This weeks theme is Christmas Gift or Gift Holder.  I made this box.  It gives me so many choices.  I can put a gift card in it, Jewelry or Candy!   I haven't decided yet who is going to get it.  Maybe my Mother.  I am not usually one to make anything but cards but this was alot of fun.  I can see me doing this again.  This is why I like challenges.  It makes me try things I normally would not do.

So take a break from all the shopping, parties, decorating and be creative!  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

The other great challenges this card fits are:

Lexi's Creations - Blue & Silver - I love blue's and silver so when I started making this box I reached for my blue Bo Bunny paper and the had to add the silver cording when I thought I wanted something whimsey.  I like the way it came out

Lollipop Crafts - Winter - What says winter better than snowflakes!  I love this paper and the snowflakes added to the top.

One Stitch at a Time - Old Stash / New Stash - Old on this box is my CS/Silver Cording and pearls.  New is the DP and the Crepe paper.

Totally Papercrafts - XMAS punches - I love this snowflake punch.  Of all my winter punches I would say this is my favorite.

Crafty Pad - Anything Goes - Great theme for me this week!!

The Stamp Man - 3 colors - My 3 colors are Light Blue, Dark Blue and Silver or white.

Bee Crafty - Winter, not XMAS - Snowflakes definitely say Winter!  Of course, I can wait until after XMAS for any Flakes to fall from the sky.  

My Sheri Crafts - Blue & Silver - I love the blues in this DP and I think the Silver Cording added just enough to the box.

Craft your Days Away - Texture - I love my new Crepe Paper by Melissa Francis.  It adds alot of texture to the flower on the top of the box.  I want to reach for it every time I make something.

Fussy & Fancy - Anything but a card -  I usually on make cards but I had so much fun making this box I can see me doing it again.

Fun with Shapes - Everything but a card - I really like this box and the biggest decision I have is who will get their present in it for XMAS.

Paper Romance - Winter -  I love snowflakes made with punches and paper.  Nothing says winter more than snow.

Moving along with the Times - For someone special - I think having a beautiful box to put your gift in says you are special to that person.  I think the special person getting this will be my mother.

Digi Doodle Shop Best - Let it Snow - Okay but only on paper!  I love all the snowflakes on this box.

Cute Card Thursday - Blue - I love blue on winter cards so, of course, I used blue for my box.

Alot Rubber Stamps - Snowflakes - Yes, there are snowflakes on my DP and on the top of my box.

Crafty Creations - Gift Card Holder - I am putting a gift card in this for my mother.

Stampavie & More - Snow /Snowflakes - I love the blue flakes on this box.

Thanks for visiting.  Thanks to everyone who leaves comments.  I love reading all of them.
