Digital-Ink Co's 1st Holiday Challenge

Hi! This is my first challenge post as part of the DT for Digital-Ink Co. Today I am sharing with you 2 projects that I have made using this cute digital stamp called "Reindeer Games". This stamp was created by Stamp'en with CJ and is available for purchase at the Digital-Ink Co. Store for just $1.50.When I saw this image for the first time I immediately thought of the song "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer". I wanted to somehow incorporate this song into my projects, so I typed the song lyrics over and over and printed it out to use as my background paper. I added glitter to the snow to get the look as if it was a bright sunny day out. You know how the sun hits the new fallen snow and it just seems to sparkle.
Here is another view of the box that I made. This was my first attempt at making a box.
Inside my box is a puzzle that I made using the digital stamp. I thought that the phrase "Reindeer Games" was perfect to add to the front of the box. I had planned to put this set under the Christmas tree for my daughter to find on Christmas morning but she discovered it earlier (poor hiding on my part) and she has been playing with it quite a bit over the past couple of days.
I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Christmas traditions that we have at our house. On Christmas eve we have a special family movie night. We pull out all the classic Christmas cartoons and sit and watch each one of them as a family before the kids head off to bed for the night. So using this image for this challenge was extra special for me because it reminded me of all those wonderful memories.
Now It's your turn to show us what you can do. Head on over to the DICo Challenge blog and get the details on how to enter this holiday challenge. There will be 3 winners plus blog candy sponsored by Cosmo Cricket!!! Don't have a DICo image? Don't worry. I've been told that there will be an opportunity for players to get a freebie image so everyone can participate in the challenge.
