Hero Art's November Challenge

I have to say I'm really missing my blog and the time to create. Working full time again in an office setting is more challenging than I remember. Sitting in front of a computer all day just exhausts me.

I did find a little creative time on Sunday so I thought I'd share with you what I came up with. This month's challenge over on the Hero Art's flicker group is ...


So here is my Gift Card holder made from a CD holder. Love it when I can recycle something.

Here is the front of the CD case. I opened it so you could see the spine. I love how that little sentiment fit just perfectly in that little space. I used a glue pad to stamp the starry background and added some fine white glitter. For the snow on the mound I used Polar White Flower soft. The reindeer was colored with Copics.

For the inside I created a little pocket for the gift card.

And to finish it off I extended the scene over to the back.

I hope you all enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We are looking forward to having all 3 of our kids together and spending time with good friends, family and good food, yum!!
