Before I begin my post, I would to just like to take a moment to remember Veterans Day and all the guys who fought and who are fighting for our country. We would not be who we are today without our troops. Thank you! Thanks also to all the families for the hardships they endure because their loved ones are in the service.

Now on for my take on today's challenges.....
Today's challenges were so much fun. I challenged myself to combine the Flutter By Wednesday and Inky Impressions challenges and create one project. I love how it turned out but my photo doesn't show what it looks like IRL!! I took 30 photos and still could not get the picture I wanted. Hate when that happens!!!
Today's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is to create a card or project which shows thankfulness AND HAS A BUTTERFLY, ANGEL, or FAIRY on it.
This weeks challenge at Inky Impressions is to create an ornament or add an ornament to your card or project. Using Inky Impressions Stamp/Images is not required for this challenge but if you got them why not use them. This challenge is also part of a design team call they are having (more details to follow at the end of the post. If you are applying for the dt call this challenge must be completed by November 24th at Midnight Eastern Time.
Here is my take on both challenges:
I created a shaker ornament box that can be hung in the tree if you would like or just used as a gift. It does hang, although, I could not hang it for the purpose of this photo. I used the new release Angelica's Sled and Angelica's Pretty Gifts from Inky Impressions. The ornament hangs inside the box. It is a really glittery purple ornament that has a round pinecone type shape. In front of the ornament is my shaker snow to create my scene. I colored the image with prisma color pencils and gamsol and used paper tole for dimension. I also added Liquid Applique for snow and green/gold cording for the sled string. The dp is sewn in the background as well for some added elegance and detail. In case you are unable to spot my angel, it is a charm hanging from the snowflake.
On the tag coming off of the gifts, I created a tag that says thank you. this ornament is just one of many that I am creating for gifts at Christmas. I am Assistant Superintendent of Sunday School and I have 12 of these to create to give to the teacher's for Christmas as a way of saying thanks. I better get busy. One down and 11 to go. Ugh!
I hope this creation inspires you to create a card or project for either Inky Impressions or Flutter by Wednesday. Since this is a long post, here is a recap.
