ABC Christmas Challenge

Happy Wednesday to all of you!  Today starts a new challenge over on the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog.  It is Samantha's turn to host the challenge and using the letter "P", she has decided to go with Christmas presents/packaging. 

I decided to decorate this little gift pail to be used for Christmas cookies or candy, or you could even use it to hold a gift.  I'm sure you've seen these little clear pails around - I found mine at my LSS.  I used Lenny Christmas and colored him with copics and colored pencils.  I used Fluffy Stuff on his hat and shirt.  I used a metallic pen and Glamour Dust on the ornament.  I tied some ribbon on the handles and I even decorated the top. 

Samantha is asking that you make a gift, gift box/bag, or a gift card/tag using this photo as your inspiration.  Be sure to stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog to see the fabulous projects everyone created.  Why not get a head-start on your Christmas packing by playing along in their challenge?

Thank you so much for stopping by.
