Stamp TV's CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Hi there,
 time for the STV CSS Alumni's blog hop. This time it's our Sketch Challenge (brought to us by our fav sketch designer, Melissa Cash) where some lucky person will win a FREE GKD Stamp Set.
Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (November 1), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

You should have come from the wonderful designer Lori McAree to here - if not, you can start from the beginning from STV.

here is Melissa's wonderful sketch


so using two sets from GKD "Showtime Stamp Kit - holiday cheer" and sentiment from "Showtime Stamp Kit - holiday greetings"....I decided to make this great "drawer box" ...tutorial is over on SCS .

This drawer holds up to TEN standard size cards WITH envelopes - how perfect for gifts for so many!



i tried so hard to get all the glitter to show! - each snowflake and scallop is popped with a dot of Stickles - they sparkle so pretty!!
Cardstock is GKD's Red Hot, retired dp from SU, ribbon from GKD, nesties and MS snowflake punches...making a mix match using these supplies while I have them all out...plan on doing 3 of these boxes with 10 cards each for my co-workers...
hope you are enjoying our hop!
remember to leave a comment for a chance to win a free set (-:
your next stop is over to the amazing blog of Kay Simmons

hugs and blessings,
 
ps I saw this adorable box a while ago over on Vicki Dutcher's blog who is also in this hop...this lady is really a "stampin machine" (-:
