The sweetest Christmas gift

jsldt22nddec 001 copy

Just a reminder that the ABC (Anything But a Card) challenge at Just Some Lines  is still running until 11:59 pm EST on Thursday 27th December.Plenty of time to join us then!You could be in the running for a super prize.You need play along with a Just Some Lines image  to enter and one random winner will get a $12 Gift Certificate to spend in the shop.It doesn’t stop there tho’ as the Top 3 will get one digi stamp each too!There is a freebie to get you started too or you can choose one from Just Some Lines here.

I decided to create this Maria’s Treat Box after finding a great tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers.So easy to make and put together 🙂 I’ve used Emo in a Gift Box by Just Some Lines and coloured her with Copic Ciao Markers,adding some white gel pen highlights.Isn’t she sweet peeping out of the box like that!

Instead of giving this away I’m going to sit it on my mantelpiece filled with sweet treats for my family.Hence using papers from the same set as my So Tweet for Christmas project.I’ve also added a kraft card and Distress Crackle Paint snowflake to match it too and a punched kraft border dabbed with more paint.I wrapped some lovely stitched ribbon around it too to pick up the dots on the paper along with the highlights on the image.The sentiment can be found in the Christmas Word Art section at Just Some Lines.I hope my family like this extra little treat I have in store for them!

Image & Sentiment : Emo in a Gift Box,Feel the Season Christmas Word Art both by Just Some Lines
Mediums : Copic Ciao Markers,Sakura white Gelly Roll pen,Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint
