Awww Lee!!!!
I signed up for your Countdown newsletter when Sandi Mac Iver sent me an email about it but I never got any from you. I signed up with all of the designers and the only countdown newsletters I got were from Sandi and Carol Anne.
I just signed up for it again hoping to get this latest project.

I love your box tutorial - so very elegant. Today is my 56th Birthday - so maybe I might have a chance to win your blog candy - not holding my breath but one never knows.
Thank you for doing the Christmas Countdown - even though I wasn't able to get the PDF's of the projects - I sure have enjoyed seeing your projects.

This has inspired me to decorate some plain boxes that were free with Christmas ornaments that I purchased. Hmmm . . . my mind is humming with possibilities!

Thanks,
JoAnn

Lee, this is just so beautiful! It is dramatic, elegant and Christmas-y all at the same time! I love what you've done with the ribbon, and the delicate texture of the ribbon plays nicely off the texture you've put on the box sides. The box is a keepsake all in itself! Thanks for sharing your beautiful ideas!
