My Artistic Adventures Challenge #2 "The First Day of Christmas"

Hello Friends!!
Welcome to the 2nd
"My Artistic Adventures Challenge"
Our 2nd Challenge Theme is
"The First Day of Christmas"
and of course you need to use elements from one of my
 Digital Collage Sheets.
Create any tangible item, Card, tag, ATC, Layout, altered art piece, Banner, pretty much anything you can come up with that is tangible.
(Sorry no digital entrees) 
and make sure you follow the theme .
So you can make a Christmas item, or something that inspires you when you hear "The first day of Christmas."  

(that would be me)
On the first day of Christmas....I bought myself a Black Cat Cougar Digital cutter :0)  Which allowed me to create this fabby little bracelet below using my Heart Focal Collage Sheet.
(now that is an interesting twist on "the first day of Christmas").
You can see more photos of this project and the sweet little gift box that I made to place it in on my earlier post I did today
My Frilly and Funkie Guest Designer Post!

Here are a few things I have made in the past using some of the sheets.  
Using my Shabby Vintage Mitten set

Vintage Christmas Mitten Set

Victorian Christmas Boot

Created these Glittery Ornaments using text box elements from the my candy canes and vintage Angel Peace on Earth set!!

Created this fabby Bluebird tag with my Bluebird tag set.

Here is a close up of Sandi's Fabby embellishments!

Created these darling Christmas Pocket using my Primitive heart Pocket set, Cute little Cherubs Set and Vintage Christmas Mitten Set 
Look at that little Cherub snowboarding on that candy cane :0)  too sweet....
The other side

Created this beautiful Gift box using my  Music background Tags, my Hugs & Pooches set and my Romantic Tags and sentiments sets.

Created this lovely fudge tin..using the  Bluebird tag set.  You got to read about her fudge :0)

 I am looking forward to seeing everyone's creations!!
I have created a badge for my challenges, which I would soooo appreciate if you were to place it on your blogs.
You can find the HTML code in the Gadget box in my Upper Left Column.  This is what it looks like.
If you don't know how to add the HTML code to your blog, 
you can see my tutorial on YouTube here.
Interested in being a Guest Designer??  The DT and I will be picking our top three Favorite Projects (hopefully we get at least three entrees)..who will receive a "Top Three Badge" and a coupon code for 20% off their next purchase.  
We will be choosing our Designer's Top Pick, which will receive a badge,  be given the opportunity to Guest Design, and receive free images to design with.
