Christmas Is A Coming.....

"Christmas is a Coming"
Good Morning from a Cold ,Damp Foggie Norfolk.Well Christmas is a Coming quicker than we think!So even though im as yet not in the christmas Spirt,i have been making a few gifts for my daughters friends.with a matching card.
The above piccy is of a wee takeaway box whihc i have made ,decorated with D/papers form last year .Used the lovely Tilda image .Coloured with copics and various stickles to co-ordinate with their dresses.The next project is a Cracker and cant remember where i saw this project ,im pretty sure on someones blog.So if anyone knows please let me know as i would love to mention it on this post.I have again used last years D/Paper cut to the appropriate lengths distressed the edges of all sections .To the front ive added some beautiful lace which received in a beautiful package from a friend as RAK.Again Tilda is coloured in Copics and distressed,sticklers to
co=ordinate with their head bands and dresses.
One is filled with crafty bits thats the cracker the box with choclates & candy
Below piccy is close up of the Tildas on the fronty of the cracker

These little gals are so cute! You do a fabulous job selecting just the right colors (colours!) to set the holiday mood. Love the boxes. re: your question about the curio box-it is Tim Holtz's Configurations box. With your talent, I know you would do something spectacular!
hugs, Vicki
