Moxxie Holiday Challenge and Hop

Hello and welcome to the Moxxie Holiday Challenge and Hop!
Today our Muses have many eye-popping designs to inspire you. We also have a fun challenge and a Prize! So lets get right to it shall we?

Our theme this month is Holiday/Winter/Christmas
and the prize, you say? 
Oh just one of these amazing lines!

 For all your furry friend's fun, holiday antics!
This line is perfect for documenting all of that holiday fun, but it's not just for your pets. Check out the awesome projects our designers created with this line, pets or no this is perfect for the holidays!

But if you're not in the market for this fun holiday line you can opt for the gorgeous Winterland!

For my Christmas project, I've altered white wooden letters from the craft store, spelling out the word JOY. I used Moxxie's Happy Pawlidays line. I turned each letter over and traced around it on the opposite side of the paper that I wanted to show on the front. Then I cut around each paper letter and glued them to the wooden letters with a glue stick. I trimmed off any edges that needed it and added my stickers and embellishments.

The letter J was covered with the b side of the Pawliday Cutouts paper. I punched two scallops from the Merry Christmas paper - one scallop from each side. On top of those, I added the cat stickers from the Pawliday Cardstock sticker sheet. Finally, I tied a gold jingle bell with red and white twine around the letter.

The letter O has a picture of our chihuahua in the center. We got Chiquita 12 years ago, on Dec. 22. She was so tiny! There were no dog sweaters that would fit her - so we had to cut holes in one of my husband's socks for her to wear!

The O was covered with the b side of the Define Naughty paper. To finish it, I added the Happy Pawlidays banner sticker and red berry stickers from my stash.

I covered the Y with the b side of Santa's Little Helper paper. I fussy cut the white chihuahua from the Pawliday Cut Outs sheet and the Santa hat from the Santa's Little Helper paper. I layered a white snowflake doily, a green scalloped circle punched from Santa's Little Helper paper and the chihuahua in the Santa hat to the letter. Lastly, I tied a red ribbon around the top of the Y.
