Happy Monday All!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!  It is hard to believe a new week has begun.  Where does the time go.  Weekends especially seem to fly by.  Before you know it, it will be Christmas!!!

Today's project is one that I made in preparation for the holidays....a gift for a friend.  I have been so preoccupied and busy with the move and selling the house, I have not been able to create as much as the past.  It feels good to be able to join my fellow Stamp and Create team this week!!!

Anywho...this project focuses on this week's Product Spotlight at Stamp and Create....THE BOW EASY!!  If you don't have one, you really must invest in one.  Now is the time since they are up to 25% off!!!  I know I should invest in a few more...it is one of my tools that I always seem to misplace...go figure!!  I just love it!! It makes perfect bows every time!!!

Since it is a new month, it is also time for a new challenge.  This months challenge at Stamp and Create is "VINTAGE".  The challenge will go until January 8!!!

The project I created for you today uses the Bow Easy, Ivory Silk Ribbon (May Arts), and
Whiff of Joy Henry Angel Mouse  from the Stamp and Create store.

 The box is created using the Tea Tabbed Box Template created by Lauren Meader available at My Time Made Easy.  The paper is Bo Bunny Snowfall.  It's kind of hard to make a treat box with Henry Angel Mouse vintage so I gave it a somewhat Victorian flair with the bells, lace, and pearls.





We hope you can join the monthly challenge!!
The prize is a $25 Gift Certificate to Stamp and Create!
**You are welcome to use any stamp for our challenges, but please make sure to adhere to the challenge theme and mention our challenge in your post** You can link your vintage creation here.

 For more inspiration using Stamp and Create's stamps and products or for more takes on the "Vintage" challenge, please visit my dt sisters:   LaceyHeidiVicky and  Jeanette.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day!!  Your comments are deeply appreciated!!  I hope you are able to join the challenge this month!!

hugs,
