Good Morning from a very dark drab and snowy Norfolk.I have been busy doing a configuration box to add to my display on my window sill.But i got the idea from this weeks cchallenge over at Simons Days Stamp and Show the them is to show some Projects with Depth.So if you fancy joining you have 2 days left before closing. Also entering it into this months challenge over at the Artistic Stamper the theme is Christmas .

ABC Christmas Challenge :Anything Goes Christmas .Ive had soo much trouble getting good photos so dark this morning.But here goes i hope you like my creation.
The papers ive used are from Graphic 45 ,Tim Holtz Configuration box,Grunge ideology seasonal shapes the lamp,ideology glass bottle,and TimHoltz tissue tape.Antique linen Distress inks.Flower soft White snow,flowers from my stash as well as the ornaments santa,mrs santa and sleigh.Corners and snowflake from Funkie Junkie ESTY Shop.

Ilined the box with the graphic 45 papers then added tissue tape .I used Antique line D/Inks all over the edges.Added flower soft snow to the bottom of the configuration compartments.
I used bottle cap and added a wee stamped image then glossy accents ontop.In the corner is an altered domino with beautiful image from Denziworld then added small gems around the edges.
The light ive used black soot d/I and then for the light it self i have used Stampendous Glitzy glitter Tigerlily, The walls on one is stamped sentiment naughty or nice in d/inks antique linen on opposite wall is a embellishment from bo -bunny.
The compartment on the left has Mrs Claus in with a wee arrangement ive made form Tim Holtz greenery die and small wooden spool added pearl pin which ive made so looks like a wee floral arrangement Large gem star to the side . Top left is the metalic filigree star ,small ideology bottle full of snow.The Noel hanging is from my stash think i originally purchased last year at card shop,but never used.You can also see the ceramic wreath hanging from the mail compartment. Thats also from my Crimbo crafty stash last years!The reinderr ive inked with distress inks and added wee holly charm around it's neck.

The flowers i have arranged are from my stock Prima &

Love it Jude. So cheerful and festive and the red flowers finish it off perfectly.
Hope you have a good weekend - we (me and Sorrel) are just back from a walk and it snowed. First time she has seen snow and it was so funny watching her prance about - she thought she was a reindeer.
