The Most Versatile Block EVER

I'm combining design team projects today, and the versatility of The Block from The Cutting Cafe made it all possible (thank you, Regina!).  Here's the story:  as a DigiStamps4Joy designer, we're given chances to guest design when DS4J sponsors other challenges.  Today, I'm guest designing at the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge Blog, and the theme is "anything but a card".  And, The Cutting Cafe assignment for today is The Block.So, combining these two projects worked -- you'll see!
I have multiple views of this block to show you.
The block can be made in several sizes and and styles.  I made the 2.5 inch block, so my images could be shown off.  Each image used is a DigiStamps4Joy image.  This one is called, "Christmas Tree."
Here's another side of the block -- it uses the image "King 1 -- time to go".  The 3D puffy star on top is from My Scrap Chick.
All the images were colored with Copic markers.  Here's the 3rd side of the block, using "Christmas Paper":
And, the last side, uses "King 3 -- We're Late"
And, one last view, for good measure:

The "King 1 -- It's time to go" image is this month's image for the DigiStamps4Joy Christmas Challenge.  I'll be linking this project up with that challenge.
I just know the other Cutting Cafe designers are going to have fantastic projects with this block! Check them all out HERE!  Leave a comment and you could win 3 sets of your choice!
