Happy Friday Everyone!!  I hope you all are doing well and that those in the USA had a good Thanksgiving with lots of Thanksgiving "Stuffing".  We was a quiet one with just our immediate family as we were trying to be on the mend so we could leave on our weekend adventure today.  We decided that although we are still hacking and not at all 100% that we would go any way since our hotel reservations are nonrefundable and we had been looking forward to this for so long.  I hope we have a good time despite all our coughing, sneezing and the like... is a new Wags n Whiskers challenge.  This week our host is the sweet and ever so sweet Nikki!!  Nikki has challenged us toWrap it up! - We would like to see your Gift Bag, Box or Tag.  Yes that means no cards this time.
Don't forget the Wags n Whiskers challenge is now open. Anyone can play along and you DO NOT need to use a Wags 'n Whiskers image.

Each challenge we have two prizes:

One random participant will win a

Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of their choice.
Any entry using a Wags 'n Whiskers image on their card will be entered into a drawing for a W'nW Digital stamp of their choice!!

Therefore, anyone who uses a Wags 'n Whiskers image will be entered into both prizes of a rubber stamp and a digital stamp!!

The only requirements are that you link directly to your challenge project - not to the main page of your blog. You must have a new project (no back linking) and you must link your card to the challenge post.
If you do not have a blog, you can still enter the challenges by uploading your cards to an open gallery such as Splitcoaststampers.
Here is my take on the challenge using the adorable and beautiful Nichola fairy from Wags n Whiskers.  I colored her with copics, cut her out and popped her up on a mini pizza box I created.
The layout uses the Midnight Madness Sketch.

Enter one style or both this week.
The designer paper is the new dp from Whimsy called Very Merry.  It is the most beautiful Christmas paper ever. 
*NEW Very Merry

The snowflakes at the corners is the new snowflakes die called Winter's Jewel I from Whimsy's Shapeology die collection. I just love it!!
*NEW Winter's Jewel 1

While it is hard to see the sparkle all the red paper is glitter paper.

Such pretty designs!
My favourite Christmas memory ...difficult question as many to choose from. One favourite, my Dad set up the card table in front of our beautifully decorated Christmas tree, and we had homemade meat pie followed by Christmas pudding or cookies (cookies were my choice as I don't like pudding). After, we would head off to church for the service where many Christmas hymns were sung -- my favourite, Silent Night.

Pam said...

What a fabulous covered box! I love all the layers and dimension! And of course the stitching!

Gunn (MsPlum) said...
