CCMC Holiday Edition Saturday Challenge-Week 1

Today is our VERY FIRST Saturday Challenge for our subscribers of the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition. One of the great things about the Saturday Challenges for our subscribers is each time they participate in the challenge, their names are entered into our drawing for one of TWO FREE Subscriptions to the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition or one of TWO FREE $75 Merchandise Gift Certificates. Our Saturday challenges are shared on our personal blogs for everyone to see, but only subscribers can win our drawings! It is not too late to subscribe to the HOLIDAY EDITION and you can still access all the projects that were presented this week and have some fun with us during challenge Saturday's!

The photo below is a sketch challenge for our first week:

This week on our subscribers site, one of the stamp sets we are featuring is the "Out On A Limb" stamp set. I thought I would incorporate that stamp set in this week's challenge. I also made a matching "goodie box":

My Card:

Notice on both projects, I have something special sitting in the middle of each. Look below and you'll see what happens with the middles:

These are called "Peekaboo Frames" and are created with the "Peekaboo Frames Die":

And look how I decorated my little "Nugget" chocolate pieces......using "It's A Wrap Holidays" stamp set:
