Hello!  This week we are celebrating the 100th DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge!  Each participant will be giving away Blog Candy!  WooHoo!  Be sure to leave a comment before midnight on Sunday to be entered in my drawing. I will announce the winner sometime on Monday.

I decided it was about time to get going on my Christmas cards, here's what I made using this sketch.
The DSP is from the Trim the Tree paper stack found in the 2014 Holiday catalog.  I punched out the oval in the top half using my Extra Large Oval punch.  I used images from the Holiday Home stamp set and used markers to color the snowman.  I must say this was a challenge in's one small stamp!
The banner is from the retired Petal Cone Die, but it would be easy enough to make one using your paper trimmer and a scoring tool.
Here's my blog candy...If you win, I will send you the supplies you need to make a couple of these cute little boxes.  (You must live in the United States in order to participate.)

Don't forget to leave comments on my fellow STARS blogs as well to enter their giveaways, good luck!

Ink/Markers:  Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Early Espresso
