Just Add Ink #585 // Time Out #203

 2 challenges inspired today's project...

Just Add Ink // #JAI585 ...A gift packaging challenge!!  When you have 7 people in your office and you want a little treat for each of get creative!!  These little snowmen chap-stick holders were created using Stampin Up's Snow Place bundle.  I gave each snowman a stocking hat by cutting the fingers off of a child size glove.  I think they turned out pretty cute!!

Time Out // #203 ...A theme challenge!! INSPIRATION!!  My inspiration came from the gift giving that takes place this time of year.  Keeping it small and remembering that it is the thought that counts.  I also incorporated the optional twist of layers...the snowman is layers onto the chap-stick, and the scarf is layered onto the snowman!!  The final layer is the stocking hat slide over the chap-stick and snowman die cut.

Verse of the Day:

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
