Snowbuddy Loves You Like I Do

Happy Sunday to you all.  I hope you are blessed where ever you are.

Today I have a project I created just for fun.  I love the images by Christy Croll from Tiddly Inks but I haven't used one in a few months.  I really missed them and joining in the challenges over there so I'm hoping to jump back into the game.
This time I chose a super cute new image called Winter Wryn.  I love Wryn's skinny, skinny arms and legs.  She is so cute.  I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and added tinsel glitter to the fur on her hat and dress.
I decided to make something besides a card.  I filled a small canning jar with M&M's (my favorite) and "built" a holder around it.  The very glittery polka dot paper is from MME (LOVE their paper!).  I added some white tulle (from my sewing stash) behind the image and some pearls in the corners.
The top of the holder comes together and wraps over itself.  I punched an oval in the top and added 2 (very, very old) brads to keep it closed.
I used the sentiment that came with Wryn on the inside.  This would even be great for Valentine's Day if I changed out the colors....

I am entering my box in the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks - Anything Goes
Cupcake Challenge Blog - Anything But a Card
Papertake Weekly - Baby It's Cold Outside
City Crafter - Winter Blues (hence my color scheme!!)

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs,
