Die Cuts R Us Challenge #21 - Using your Christmas/Holiday "Leftovers"

Welcome!  The entries for the Challenge 20 "Color Inspiration" were truly amazing and inspiring.  Great job, friends.  I enjoyed seeing the many Design Team entries, too.  There's still time to apply for the Design Team positions at Die Cuts R Us.  All the details are posted here on the DCRU DT blog.

On to this week's Challenge Number 21 which is to create something with your Christmas/holiday leftovers.  When I opened my box of Christmas paper one of the first things I saw was this lonesome colored-in Vivi.  I also found a perfectly cut piece from the Eskimo Kisses Collection and layered it on a blue scrap that an oval Nestabilities had been cut out of.  In my ribbon scraps was a matching grosgrain ribbon and voila, Vivi is happy to be on a card.  But Vivi is going back in the box since the holidays are over.  But come this Christmas, I'll already have ONE card made...79 more to go.  You can find all the supplies used on the DT blog here.

So grab your Christmas or holiday leftovers and start creating! Hope you'll join us this week! Remember you have until Sunday at midnight EST to link your project to Mr. Linky on the DCRU DT blog.
