This swap is part of the seasonal challenge swap we started last summer. Each season I will (try to!) post a different challenge. This one is not for a season, but for a holiday: Christmas.

Here's how it works: When I assign partners, I will send everyone in the swap a digital image sheet that can be used in a craft you will be making. Everyone gets the same sheet. Your challenge is to make something fun, thoughtful, and creative for your partner. This is Sender's Choice, so make whatever you want but you must use at least one of the images on the digital sheet that I send you. The digital image will be appropriate for Christmas, but will not be overtly religious. The idea is to highlight the digital image, so try to make that a prominent or easily recognizable element in your craft. And, of course, it must be in the Somerset Style.

Some ideas:
-a chunky wooden house
-a mini Christmas tree
-a Christmas stocking or ornament
-a garland or banner
-a shrine
-an altered votive holder or candle
-a set of tags or magnets
-a wall hanging
-a decorated box or tin
-original art
You get the idea.

The only other requirement relates to quality. Make something you are proud to share. Can we make our partners squeal with delight? I bet we can.

Thanks to all who have given me such positive feedback on these challenge swaps and asked for more. :)

I can't help it. I keep thinking well, just this one more, but these challenges are such great ideas, so here I go again.

Ha! I know what you mean! I had a lot of fun shopping for this image sheet thinking of all the ways to use them.
