Week #39 - 'Tis The Season!

I am your host this week for the #39 challenge, and I have chosen the theme of  'Tis The Season' for us all to play along with this week!  What I'd love to see you create is a holiday gift item or gift set.  Now this is really open for interpretation ... maybe you'll make someone a handmade card or set of cards ... maybe you'll make a plate of homemade cookies with a little gift tag ... maybe you'll be inspired by the Shabby Girls and come up with a gift that will knock our socks off!  We cannot wait to see what you all create :)

Here are a couple of inspiration photos to get your creative juices flowing and kick start your mojo ...

Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple guidelines (listed on the sidebar) will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for understanding and playing along!

Please take a moment to help me welcome our Guest Designer this week, Ira Huberts! Ira earned this Guest Designer Spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #31 - "Pumpkin Patch" challenge. Please stop by her blog and leave her a bit of shabby {love}!
