Wild Orchid Challenge....SWEET STUFF!!!

 
A very happy Monday to everyone!!! I hope that each of you had a marvelous weekend and are ready for a grand week also!! I hope that all of you who braved the Black Friday sales survived and found everything that you were looking for!
 
During this fortnight at Wild Orchid Challenge the requirement is to make something for a child using Wild Orchid Crafts products. We would love for you to come over and join in with us this time because as always there is a lovely prize for some lucky participant!
 
I decorated a couple of gift boxes using products from the WOC shop and they were so quick and easy that I almost feel guily. They were a request by a friend who wanted them for her grandson and granddaughter. I used a couple of Whimsy Prints which are already pre-colored and cut out and ready to play with!!
 
 
For the little boy's box I used Snowshoe Bunny from the Winter's Magic Prints Collection. The double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from MME Winter Wonderland. I added Stardust Stickles for all of the snowflakes and on the ground for a little sparkle. All of the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts: Large Red Poinsettias, Moonstone Brads, Organza Ribbon, Satin Ribbon, and Miniature Silver Ringing Bells.
 
 
 
For the little girlie box I used Meadow Magic from the Christmas Joy Prints Collection and the CS is Bazzill. Again I used Stardust Stickles for the halo, snowflakes, and snow. I simply added some gingham ribbon tied into double flat bows on each end of the box, a couple of snowflake ornaments topped with Self-Adhesive Pearls and some holly leaves topped with some Open Roses.
 
 
SWEET STUFF!!!
 
And since it's challenge day, I guess that means a little bit of SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS!!! Today I have 2 sets of Inkadinkado clear stamps to offer. Warm Holiday Wishes has 21 stamps and Tags and Wishes has 17 stamps. This is the best picture I could get so I hope you can tell that in each set there are two layers of stamps. All you have to do is leave your comment before Wednesday, November 28, at 8 AM EST if you wish to be in for the draw!! Good Luck!!
 
Thank you so much for your visit today and I hope you come back often! Have a delightful week and until we meet again...I send big hugs!!

Having read this I thought it was very informative.
I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this information together.

I once again find myself spending a significant
amount of time both reading and leaving comments. But so
what, it was still worthwhile!
