I started with an Xmas card, using on of the second set of Miss Anya stamps by The Greeting Farm, coloured with my Copics. I also used some Stickles glitter glue on the fur of her coat and boots....a girl needs some sparkle. The papers are all October Afternoon "Good Cheer" from an 8x8 pad I got from The Craft Emporium...Thanks Lynn. Finally I added some ribbon from my stash, a couple of heart pins and a sentiment by Craftwork Cards (I looove 'em).
Next I made a Milk Carton project. I paid and downloaded from Becky (www.inkingidaho.blogspot.com) using papers by Creative Imaginations....I love the fruity theme. We did have a fit of hysterics while I was making this though....The stickers that came with the kit had a sticker containing the word "Spunk"....now all the Brits will know this has a different meaning here than in the US.....so you can image the laughter than this bought. If you don't know the UK meaning....either email me or ask a friend from the UK...be warned it is a little rude (for those with a delicate demeanor).
So anyway, this Milk Carton holder can have gifts put into each of the cartons....I plan on putting some fruity toiletries and sweets into this one.
Finally I decided that after almost 2 years of hanging around the floor of my craft room, or in the loft, that this Advent Calender box that I got from B&Q in the sale back in 2007 needed to be decorated....so I took a couple of sheets of Making Memories "FaLaLaLaLa" paper and cut squares out to cover the drawer fronts, and then added some die-cut numbers that I got earlier this year from www.shabbychiccrafts.blogspot.com . I had to cut a couple of them down to make them fit....but overall I am pleased (as was Georgia). It is not quite finished as I am making a wreath with my Martha Stewart "Branch" punch to go on the big door....
I was really pleased to have been so productive and finished a project that had been hanging around a while, one new one, and a start to my Xmas cards....2 xmas cards down....unsure of how many to go....LOL.
