First we want to wish our American Friends a Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we have so much fun for all of you holiday crafters. It was difficult to narrow our crafty works to 1 item, but you don't have to. Show us all of your holiday creations!




Diana's vintage card holder for stockings had me jumping up and down
like a kid on Christmas eve




Our newest team member, 
Katelyn combined awesome black and white layers, to bring you "Warmest Wishes"

Cathy is longing for the Alberta (haha) with this super cute "Let it Snow" wall hanging

  6. Kim, It looks as if I'm going to have to comment on your make here...I love all that glitter on the trees or is that Soft Fallen Snow? Santa and his sleigh look great magically flying across your moonlit sky! Beautiful Christmas scene! Hugs!

    1. LOL Sara, you're awesome. I will hopefully write up the directions for the weekend. It's been hectic with a funeral and classes starting. The trees are Tim Holtz mirror and edge die I brushed them with a mix of lucky clover and walnut stain and then yes it was a very light dusting of the snow powder and heat setting before the paint fully dried.

    1. I don't plan on having a limit yet. I'm so small and haven't had more then12-14 entries so add away. If it comes up maybe I will cap it at 5 but j don't intend to stop the creative sharing yet :). Thank you for the excellent question and things to think about for the future.

  13. Wow, your DT projects look amazing! So impressive and inspiring! I am new here and I just joined as a follower! I am Canadian so I was super excited to find your challenge! I just linked up my gift set, but I can't see my entry. I tried it a second time but I still don't see it. Here's my link - maybe you can let me know if there's a problem:

  14. I tried a third time, silly me, but I still don't see it. I have the proper link to your challenge in my blog post so I'm really not sure what I'm doing wrong. I've entered 3 times with the same blog post, but I think it's okay because my blog post contained 3 items: a card, tag, and snow globe. Thank you so much!

  23. Hi Kim - I was going to stop at 5 but I am so happy how my sled turned out I wanted to post it here - sometimes I amaze myself and I really do not mean to be bragging on me - but I am just amazed I got this sled to look like this by mixing chalk, markers, and ink - So sorry about the technical difficulties - I sent an email regarding #3 upload here - have a blessed evening.
