It's Official....

Greetings everyone, and happy "Black Friday" to all of you.  It's official... we here in the U.S. are headed full steam ahead toward the Christmas season.  Today has to be the BIGGEST shopping day of the year, and I'm just NOT crazy enough to go to any stores.  There is nothing that is so important for me to find that I must deal with crazy crowds, and waiting in LONG Lines at the store.  My craft room, and staying cozy in my PJ's is pretty inviting.

Soooooo, with all that being said... I have a couple of things to show you today.

First of all, Janiel and I are sharing a post over on the Digi Bells Blog today, we have decided that we would both use "Lil' Lynda's Piano Forte", and create something with a "holiday theme". 

Rather than making another holiday card, I decided that I would decorate a small tin, that you could use to put a small gift inside.  I didn't take pictures of the inside, simply because I've not yet figured out what I'd like to put inside it.

A view of the top of the tin.



Another view from the side...  You can hardly see it in this picture, but the paper used is a "Musical" design from K&Company.  Of course you can see the lace, as well as the velvet ribbon that borders the lid.

Why not stop over at Janiel's Blog, and see the GORGEOUS card she's created with this darling Digi.  Oh how I love this sweet Digital Stamp from Elisabeth Bell.  After all, this one was made especially for me, for my birthday.  Am I a lucky girl or what???

Now, how about a little more holiday inspiration?

We are following a sketch that I created for this months challenge over at
Elisabeth Bells World Challenge Blog

Here I go again, creating something OTHER than a card....
This time it's a gift bag... 

I decorated both sides of the gift bag, identically, following the sketch. 
The only difference is....  The stamp that was used...  Both stamps are from Whiff of Joy, and designed by none other than our very talented Elisabeth Bell.


and the other side


So what do you think?  You have a whole month to join us in this months challenge.
All you need to do, is use ANY Elisabeth Bell Stamp, and follow the sketch.
It's that simple... We can't wait to see what you'll create.
