Phindy's Place Challenge #36 - Give Thanks With Scraps

Welcome to the latest Phindy's Place Challenge, it's Christmas Eve and I'm sure you're all rushed off your feet, but don't worry you have two weeks to enter our challenge, to give the DT a bit of well-earned time off!

We have made a few changes to the challenge, to shake things up a bit!  We have decided to open the challenge to all-comers and you will no longer need to use a Phindy's Place image to enter. However, what we love best of all is to see your projects that use Phindy's Place images! If you enter using a Phindy's Place image, you will get two entries to the draw to win a gift certificate. To do this, enter your project as usual to Inklinkz. Then, make a further entry (you won't be able to link to the same blog entry) and, this time, leave your name with "Phindy image" added.

The winner of the Challenge will be chosen by and will receive an $8 Gift Certificate to the Phindy's Place store. As it says above, entrants using a Phindy's Place image will get a second entry to the draw. The Pick of the Week wins a 20% off voucher for the Phindy's Place store. Don't forget that once a month we will choose an overall winner from the weekly winners and they will be offered a Guest position on the DT - and of course a free image from Phindy's Place to use for that week's challenge!

OK now on to the Challenge... This week we are making "Thank You" cards and projects, everyone needs Thank You cards after Christmas! There is an additional, optional challenge to use up your scraps. 

My project is a Thank You tag.  This has been a sad week for crafting in the UK, Graphicus, a big and much loved retailer and wholesaler has gone into liquidation.  I decided to print off some of the lovely tags on their Essence of Nature CD and based my Thank You on this.  The gold embossed sentiment is Elusive Images and my Flower Top Fairy Rose image, from Phindy's Place is printed twice: the second print is onto vellum and I've used the wings from this, lightly coloured and glued down to the fairy's body but left free of the tag above her.  I've added lots of Stickles to the fairy and the tag.  
You're probably wondering where the scraps are...  OK I got a bit carried away with my tag and realised I'd neglected the scrap part LOL!  So I went to my ribbon bag and pulled out some little lengths that weren't enough to make a bow for a card and threaded them through the scallops at the bottom.  Sorted!

My project is for the following challenges:
Simon Says - anything goes
Paper Sundaes - cut it out
Papertake Weekly -  anything goes
Cupcake Crafts - thank you
CDSunday - tag it
Stamp Something - with a tag or pocket
Paperplay Challenges - anything but a card
Winter Wonderland - Thank You
