Nanny's Christmas box - all wrapped up!

Morning lovely blogland folk, followers old and new! I hope you are well and happy - I had a good time yesterday and even managed to catch up on most things and start to get ahead again - brilliant! It does make you feel better! I was also lucky enough to receive the liebster award from my friend and teamy at the crafty pad Pauline. Thanks Pauline - I will get onto that asap!

Today I've got my entry to Penny Black's Cute Christmas to share with you - I hope you like it.

Its a box from yellow moon that had spoons to decorate in it (for the rainbows) - I've turned the box inside out and found it was white - then used that snowflake stamp free with craft stamper magazine and stamped snowflakes directly onto the box using DI milled lavendar, worn lipstick and dusty concorde. Then I made the tag  - I used worn lipstick distress stain, dried then added DI milled lavendar and dusty conconcorde - spritzed and flicked with water and dried. Then I added my stamped image of Mimi and the glitter paper strip at the bottom and finally added the word Nanny. Then into the box I put the goodies that my girls have bought for nanny for Christmas and I tied it all up with ribbon.

My mum - who reads this blog - is going to be uber excited when she sees this!!!! She's like a kid at Christmas - its so lovely! xx Bless you mum xx
