Pixie Cottage Challenge #2...Celebrate!




Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday Wishes To You!

This weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge theme is to make a card based on the word "Celebrate"! This is a awesome challenge because you are in control of what you want to do! How cool is that?! Before I go any further, I also want to thank all of the participants who participated in our first Pixie Cottage Challenge. We had 34 participants!!!! Way to go Pixie Cottage! As of this moment, I don't know who the winners are but to see if you are a winner.....click here.



To participate in this weeks challenge, you can use any stamp that you desire. If you have Pixie Cottage Stamps, feel free to use them. You can also combine your challenge card with other blog challenges as well! You have 10 days to complete your card. Once you are finished with your card, link it up to the Pixie Cottage Blog. All "celebrate" challenge cards are due by November 8th and must be posted to the Pixie Cottage Blog by midnight (EST). Have fun with the challenge and we look forward to viewing your creations!



For my "celebrate" card, I chose this delightful image (A Little Witch In All Of Us) created by our multi-talented DT leader, Kristen Kelsey. My card is a easel style card and I found the instructions for this card here (A picture by picture tutorial by Suzanne Dean). I was hesitant to make on of these cards because it looked difficult but they are really super easy to make!
I also made a matching treat box for my card. My kids feel that they are "too old" to go Trick-or-Treating and my boys wouldn't be caught dead with this box! Once I fill the box with candy, I think my daughter will give it to one of her friends...either way.....I'm fine with the kids decision.
