12 Days of Scary Christmas - Day 7

Hey y'all!  It's time for Day 7 over at Simply B's 12 Days of Scary Christmas.  This theme is...the shape of Christmas.  What does that mean?  A star?  A tree?  Are you kidding??  Of course not!  The team at Simply B want to see.....COFFINS!  That's right, coffins all decked out for Christmas!  (Well, I guess vampires have to celebrate the holidays, too....right?)  Betty even included a link to a fabulous treat box tutorial over at

Let me tell you...the tutorial was AWESOME!  It worked great, even my very first time!  I will definitely be making more of these....possibly for EVERY holiday. LOL  I usually give treat boxes to my coworkers for the holidays, and this one will be perfect!

I used the fabulous Vampiress Tilly.  I just love her sassy attitude!  I merged her with a great frame I found over at The image was colored with Copics and Spica Markers.  Flowers and ribbon are from my stash.  Flowers started out white, then I colored them with my Copic.  the leaves are from a Sizzix die.  Papers from DCWV.

Well, I hope you like it!  If you have a chance, check out the tutorial and come play along!  The prize is a digi from a surprise, not yet released line.  I don't know what it's going to be.....but knowing Betty, I know it's going to be fabulous!  =D

Thanks so much for stopping by.  See you soon!
