Fun Gift Box


My wonderfully creative friend Donna from Butternut Sage Designs recently had this beautiful ELEGANT gift  box on her blog.....she is the queen of elegance.  I am NOT the queen of elegance, so when I made the box using her fabulous template, I went fun and snowy:




I used the colors from the Colour Q Challenge #10, shown here:



Isn't this an adorable snowman?  I just had to dig into some of my older Christmas DP stash and pair it with some fun snowmen images and sentiments from Whippersnapper, SU, Impression Obsession and PTI.  Although some of the colors in the DP don't match the challenge exactly, I thought they were close enough!!

Gee whizzies, in all my excitement of making such a fun project, I realize I forgot my GLITTER!  I added bling, but no glitter!!!  I will have to rectify that immediately!  Can't have snowmen without glitter.  Then I have to think of WHAT I can put inside the box???!!  Something for DD probably, as she likes snowmen too!

And because Donna has been such a sweet blogging friend, and such an encourager to me, and I am SUCH a fan of her work, I sent her THIS card:


Thank you so much for visiting today!  In the next couple weeks, my posting and commenting may be know how it is!  Take time to enjoy YOUR families.....blogging will always be here, your loved ones may not!
