 It's Friday again!  And that means it's time for another challenge on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog!  Today's challenge is Anything BUT a Card.  You can use any stamp, any paper, any embellishments you want as long as 1) it is a Christmas/holiday project and 2) it is NOT a card.  And the PRIZE, you ask?  Well, it's a surprise, but I know it will be a good one.  So head on over to the CSAYL bog to get all the details, check out the other Design Team members' projects and get busy creating anything that is not a card.  I used this adorable template from My Time Made Easy: Mini Card Candy Wrap.  It measures about 3x3x1 inches and it is so cute!  My cover design was created to fit three other challenges and then when I went to post it, I realized they were all for LAST week.  This is always happening to me. : )  Oh well.  It stretches me anyway, right?
