A Christmas Box

>> Sunday, 15 November 2009

Hi everyone. I hope you are enjoying a relaxing Sunday. After the wet and wild weather of yesterday I’m sitting here in a T shirt with the sun pouring through the window enjoying a rare couple of hours with the house all to myself – bliss! I’ve got a cup of tea by my computer and I’ve just finished the last few squares of a Milka bar (which I have to hide otherwise my darling husband would scoff it in a second).


HPIM1761 I got the idea for this box from Kirsten’s blog. Kirsten makes the most gorgeous boxes and she has several templates on her blog that you can use. I’ve been itching to use my new Stempelglede stamps and I’m really pleased with the result. My gorjuss girl is coloured with distress inks, cut out with an oval nestie and I pierced a frame around the edge. The flowers were stamped and then punched and all the papers have been distressed with faded jeans distress ink.


HPIM1762 I’ve decorated the inside of the box lid too with the Stempelglede stamps and a sentiment stamp from Crafty Individuals.

I’m going to enter this box into these challenges:

Sketch Saturday

Totally Gorjuss – Christmas Blues

Secret Crafter – Four Seasons

Colour Create – Blue, white & silver

Stampavie & More – Not a card

I’m going to enjoy a game of tennis with some friends this afternoon - whatever you’re doing have a fabulous Sunday!
