THT068 Snowflake Covered Pecans for A Teacher

Yep it is Thursday again and time for another fantastic TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE. This week is # 068 - For A Teacher. I really struggled with this challenge but I guess that is why they are called CHALLENGES, huh? Anyway my 2 girls have been out of school for quite some time but now one of them is back in school with pre-k children so she is my teacher that I made something for. Shannon loves pecans almost as much as I do so I covered her a can of them but shhhh don't tell her. LOL.This is also for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 291 - Tag You're It. I made a tag to go along with my gift. For my base I used some dark blue cs around the can and then cut a circle for the top as well. The snowflake images are from a new set due to be released Oct 1st called Wonder of Christmas. I used the cluster image to go around the can. The tag was made using one of the single snowflake images, a sentiment from that same set and the tag itself is from BEARY BIRTHDAY digital set. I am not sure I am overly impressed with this attempt at this challenge but after 2 strike outs this one had to do. I have to get to bed so I can work tomorrow. All digital images are from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL LINE.
This is also for today's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 289 - Holiday Headstart. Well I have that covered since I am getting ahead of the game on making altered gift items to go with the Christmas cards. I love to hand deliver these type of gifts just to see their faces when they discover what is inside or under the paper.
Now don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created, theres are so much better. Then you create something and show me up, I am sure you can do that. Be sure to provide a link from your direct post to the TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE # 068 post so we can check out what you came up with.
