Outlawz Color Challenge: Purple, Green, White
Well, this is the time of year when everyone is running around trying to find that perfect gift!  Something to top the perfect gift of last year!  It seems to me that the person who this day was created to honor, was never harried or rushed.  Never concerned so much about the material things in life, but more the spiritual.  Personally, I think he would like my card!

Supplies: Neenah Solar White Linen CS; Bazzill Basics Purple CS, Astro-Brights Lime Green Text Paper; Image: GinaK Stamps "Falling for You" collection; Sentiment: Kraftin Kimmie Stamps; Die Cut: Memory Box "Meridian Border", Pearls: Zva Creative, Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics: YG07, V17

Just For You

This is my non-traditional X-mas tree.  I don't normally do X-mas themed projects, however, This week's Greetings Challenge at Outlawz was "Gift Wrapped" and I wanted to stick with the theme. I could have done a Chanukah card, but I don't believe it giving gifts at Chanukah...makes it seem like X-mas. But I didn't believe in giving gifts at X-mas either.  I don't like the commericialization of  religious holidays.
Supplies:  Neenah Classic Crest - Ivory CS; Lost&Found Two - Sunshine DP, Recollections Printed Scrapbook Papers; Spellbinders Nesties; cArt-Us Embossing Folders; Momento Rich Cocoa Ink; Ribbons, Pearls, Stickles.
