Christmas Card and Box

Good Evening to you all and I hope your all having a good day,
This afternoon I found time to make a card and a box for a number of challenges, I’m just loving being able to take my time and enter so many challenges and boy there are some good ones out there just now and I want to enter them all :-)
I should have been planting Petunias in my window box’s but the card and box won, I shall do that tomorrow morning and craft in the afternoon ohh I have grocery shopping to do as well, thinking shall I put DH on a diet lol but then again he’s going to the UK next week for a conference so he’ll blow the diet anyway !!

Onto my card and box, I decided to do an easel card after I had seen quiet a few on other blogs and thought ohh must have a go at that and this is the result. I quiet like these because using double sided paper the inside is already done for you so all you have to do is decorate it, if you want to, I just added Happy Christmas to mine but you could put another image if you desired. The images on the main panel are from the Inkidoodle - Gift Tag Set I bought myself, similar to the one in my candy.

The box I did with my Score Pal and used the same paper with snowflakes inside, I intend to have templates in my suitcase and make them up in the UK to match the Christmas cards, ideal for friends filled with chocs.

I have entered both into the following challenges:

Pennys Challenge - Winter Theme to include Ribbon and Glitter or Sparkle.

Saturday Spotlight - Repeated Image

Crafty Ann's - Celebrate

All Sorts Challenge – Bling

Secret Crafter – Easel Card

By the Cute and Girly - Winter Wonderland

Stamp for the Weekend - Festive Goodie Box


Paper, Ribbon, Flower – Bo Bunny
Image - Inkidoodle - Gift Tag Set
Bling – Kaban
Brad – K and Co
Pearl – Big C
White Ribbon on Box – Stash
Coloured – HO2 Twinkles
Glitter – Stickles
Sentiment – From Cyprus but it has no name on it.

Don't forget their's a new challenge tommorow on Cute Daisy May

Thank you for popping by and don't forget my blog candy which is drawn on the 29th November and good luck to you all, see you all later.
