AiFactory DT CALL and Challenge #17 ~ Last Minute Gifts

Happy Tuesday everyone! I cannot believe that Christmas is only 3 days away! I am almost ready, I just need to get something for my mom and dad! I cannot think of anything to buy. Hopefully, I come up with something soon LOL.

It is time for another AiFactory Challenge and this week the DT is featuring the clipart set Season Greetings. We've all experienced that last minute need for a gift for friends who stop by during the holidays or that special someone we overlooked. So are challenge for you ~ Show us those gifts or cards that can be created quickly and given to practically anyone. You do not have to use AiFactory images but if you have them we would love to see them! Also, there are FREEBIES available in the store for you to use!

This week I decided to use one of the great templates available from Papertrey Ink. This one is called the Cash or Charge Collection and it includes three different templates for creating gift card holders. I printed the template on to Pure Poppy cs and the dsp is from Martha Stewart. I used circle and scallop nestabilities to cut out the gingerbread man from the Season Greeting set.

To play along and be eligible for this weeks prize please upload your card or project to Mr. Linky on the AiFactory Blog by Monday Jan 4th (yep that's 2 weeks) at Midnight EST. What are you playing for...a free clipart set of your choice. If you upload to an online gallery please use AIF017. For more inspiration, be sure and visit the rest of the fabulous Design Team:

Carole * Erin * Kerry * Lola * Fink

Thanks for stopping by,

Love your project Angie! A great idea! Just in case you want to send it to me, I love Barnes and Noble and of course Michael's or AC Moore. HA!
