Happy Monday All!! I hope you all had a great weekend!!    Mine went well but was extremely busy!!!

Today I am popping in to share this week's Stamp and Create Product Spotlight!!  This week's spotlight is Christmas images.  All Christmas images are up to 25% off!!!!  This sale begins at noon EST today!!!

For todays post I created a Christmas Gift box (lunchbox) using the adorable Betty Mouse with Candy Cane. I colored it with copics. The bow is created with Ivory Silk Ribbon and the bow easy.  The paper is Basic Grey Jovial.  The image is framed with Lacey Circles from Spellbinders.  The background is embossed with Swiss Dots.  The sentiment tag is attached with a snowflake button and cording.  The shape of the tag is created with the Stampin Up tags (small and large).  The borders used are the Daisy Edge punch and Fence punch from Martha Stewart. The lunch box design uses the "Let's Do Lunch" template designed by Lauren Meader for Papertrey Ink.  I added a gold pinecone and silver baubles to my ribbon bow with silver cording.

 For more inspiration using Stamp and Create's stamps and products please visit:   LaceyHeidiVicky and  Jeanette.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day!!  Your comments are deeply appreciated!!
