Hello!  This is my first time participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  The theme of the hop is a quick and easy wrapping or tag.  I chose to make one of these super quick and easy 2-5-7-10 Boxes, but I left an open top.  I used Aqua Mist cs for the base and some dp from the Rustic Snowflakes paper pad.  I stamped one of the trees from Tree Trimming Trio with Aqua Mist and added the Pure Poppy ornaments.  The sentiment is from Signature Christmas.  Very quick and easy!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello!  It's so nice that the kids are home this week--no school, no activities, which means I don't have to run all over the place and I can play in some SCS challenges!!!  Today's Color Challenge was to use Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, and Bermuda Bay.  I seriously went a little overboard this year with Christmas stamps lol, but I am determined to put them all to good use!  There are just soooo many adorable images out there, and I am a sucker for adorable!  Anywho, I used C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies Nora for this card.  For the snowflake bg I used a stamp that comes with the Your Next Stamp set Fhiona and Friend Penguin.  I stamped the snowflakes with Bermuda Bay, but stamped off once to get the lighter color.
