2 For Christmas

Happy Friday! I'm kind of glad this week is drawing to an end. It's been one of those weeks. I am trying to finish up my challenges for the Bugaboo Christmas Chaos challenges.

So I have two projects today to finish off the challenge:

This is for Day 6: Gift Wrap. I made a tag for a wine bottle that we'll be giving as a gift. It Christmas Bear - candy cane bear from Bugaboo. I colored him with Copic markers and embellished him with Diamond Stickles on his hat. The stitched party banner die is from Lawn Fawn. The Merry Christmas die is from Paper Smooches. I added some candy cane ribbon to tie the banner to the wine bottle.
I am entering these challenges:

My second project is for Day 7 of the Christmas Chaos challenge:

I used the embossing, ribbon and Santa row of the challenge.

The Bugaboo image is Santa - presents.  The background paper is from my scrap bin. I embossed the holly paper at the bottom with the Holly Swirl embossing folder. I added some polka dotted ribbon and ties a know at the side. The Santa is cut out of MFT Cross Stitched Ovals and popped up from the card base. There's a layer of kraft card stock under the designer paper and the base of the card is red. And my favorite die of the season from Paper Smooches. Where would I be without it. LOL!
I am entering these challenges:
I have a ton to do this week. My daughter Tricia wants to make boxes for some baked goodies she's making for gifts. I have to write out my Christmas cards and decorate the house. I haven't started yet. And we've had another death in the family and a friend's sister passed away yesterday so I have sympathy cards to make. No rest for me this weekend. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
