Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: Anything but a Card....and Blog Candy!

Happy Tuesday!!! I hope you you enjoyed your weekend.  Minus working all weekend, It was rather quiet.  I had a little bit of time to do some crafting and worked on this altered cigar box, for this weeks "Anything But A Card" challenge.  I have to tell you that I LOVED making this project and since making this one, I have made another and started working on my 3rd....Great way to use up your scrap papers and they are really fun to make.  This is my first one and I actually made it for ME....LOL...I made it to match my bedroom and decided it will look great on my dresser.  It is not completely done, as I would like something else on top in the middle, but
until I can find the "perfect" something, it is staying the way it is.  If you are needing a last minute holiday gift, you may want to consider making one of these. It cost under $10.00 to make and it is a fairly quick make.  I even got the Tim Holtz legs on sale...wahooo...
   As I mentioned, not only are we having a great challenge this week, but I have decided to give away some blog Candy.....because of the upcoming holidays, I have decided to keep it a surprise...all you have to do is leave a comment on this weeks post stating what your FAVORITE themed challenges are to participate and why.....example, I love Halloween and I am always up for a Halloween challenge. Next tuesday I will choose I random winner and send your package off.  I also want to mention that this weeks challenge will be the last challenge of the year...We are taking off a few weeks for the Holidays. Going Grey With Scrap-Creations will start up again in the beginning of January....
   Last week we had a HUGE number of participants and that always makes me excited....but it also makes it REALLY hard to choose the weeks TOP 3......after much consideration, Last weeks TOP 3 of the Christmas Challenge are:

Sandy: Gorgeous Coloring and love the papers
 
Lena: Stunning coloring and I love the colors and embellishments.

 
Mona: Great colors and image for the theme.
 


Fabulous cards ladies Please feel free to grab the I made TOP 3 banner on the right of my blog!

Gorgeous projects from one and all! our box project is wonderful! My favorite type of challenge is sketches and recipes or sometimes tic tac toe. I enjoy trying to put things together so it;s more of a challenge if there are a list of things to do in the one card. Thanks for the chance! Love the challenge this week!

Lovely inspiration, hope you all have a lovely Christmas. My favourite challenges are those asking for special items, like use lace, ribbon, fabric etc. Makes me look in my drawers lol.
