Now on to:
Challenge 169

For today's challenge I'd like to see something 'all wrapped up' on your Christmas creation - perhaps a snowman, a person, a gift ... whatever you choose to show 'all wrapped up'

The first sponsor is Cupids clear stamps:

Peelable Clear Stamps. They are supplied on a clear plastic sheet, simply peel the stamp from the carrier and place on a clear acrylic block with no adhesive required.

Rubber Stamps. They are supplied on red natural rubber in sheet form just cut and mount with your preffered method.'


The randomly chosen winner will receive two sets of Cupids clear stamps:



The second sponsor is Crafts 4 eternity:

Please visit the websites of these generous sponsors and support them -
you will be spoiled for choice!

For my card I used  'snowman's gifts' kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Crafty sentiments - featuring 'all wrapped up' in two ways - the snowman and the gift - more info on My Crafty Outlook here:

You can enter as many times as you wish  and also link to any other challenges that allow you to do so, but new work only, please.
