Hello there! Well the weather's getting more and more crazy here - last night we tried carol singing - but only managed 40 minutes before the hail was coming down so fast and hard we had to give up. Poor little Penny was crying bless her! Anyway - it gave me some time to craft last night so things all work out for the best in the end!
Today I'd like to share with you my 12 days of Christmas box - I got this and decorated it last year but have overhauled it this year so its all been done with LOTV stamps and papers.
The trees and snowflakes have been cut using die'sire dies. The hearts on the internal boxes are wooden and have been stained with weathered wood Distress stain. The two LOTV stamps have been coloured with speccies. The lettering is from Claritystamps. I have had a family photo done as a jigsaw puzzle - its got 204 pieces and I've split these between the boxes = we have the first box on Christmas day and a new box each subsequent day! I hope it goes down well - last year I bought hair clips and the like so its a bit different this year.
I'd like to enter this box into the following challenges:
LOTV ideastoinspirechallenge- ABAC
ALBCpaulaholifieldcrafts albc-christmas-cheer: Christmas cheer
ABAC:anythingbutacard Holiday twist
SSSMonsimonsaysstampblog: Use a stamp
Lastly I have my final tag from the funkie junkie's 12 tags of Christmas to share with you - this challenge is sponsored by the funkiejunkie Boutique and Linda's original tag can be found here. I took the horse and carriage as inspiration plus the sideways tag.
I used the only horse and carriage stamp I have - its from claritystamps. The snow stamp is from sheena douglass. I'd like to enter this tag into the thefunkiejunkie-12-tags-of-christmas tag 12 challenge.
Thats all for today. Thankyou for visiting my blog and leaving your pearls of wisdom and lovely comments - I really do appreciate it!
I'm off to the Hornby Ladies Christmas dinner tonight - looking forward to that as it was so beautiful last year! Here's hoping it will be as much fun tonight!
Big Hugs to you!
