‘W’ for Wrapping :-)

Crikey ,,, it is only 33 days left till Santa will be popping in for a glass of sherry and a mince pie ! Better get a wiggle on if we are going to be ready !

I am here with a mid week reminder for the current ABC Christmas Challenge, you still have till next Tuesday evening to join in so get your paper and glue out and join in ! :-)

‘W’ for WRAPPING  :-)

so bags, boxes, wrapping paper ,, you can use an image of a character wrapping gifts ,,, but not a pile of parcels ,,,, get the idea ??  :-)

now,,, we have had quite a few non bona fido entries ( yes I know that is mis-spelled lol )   and these have been deleted ,,, but it is a faff, so please follow the theme :-) 
We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher on offer 


The Stamping Boutique  will be giving 2 prizes of  a choice of digi images :-)

so you have 3 chances to win a prize !! :-) Woo Hoo !! :-)

As most of you will know I recently bought a Silhouette Cameo machine and I have to say ,,, again ,,, how much I LOVE it !! and it is BRILLIANT for making all sorts of cool stuff !! :-) When I saw this fab Christmas ornament box I thought it would be perfect for this challenge :-)

I had a 12x12 pack of Papermania Luxury Laser card that I have had for a couple of years, gathering dust, and I thought it would be great for this ! I also printed the sentiment and cut the banner on the machine and I popped some acetate in the aperture.

Of course I then had to make a bauble to pop in it !! 
I used white  neenah card , cut it on the Silhouette, used a Hero Arts Flourish  stamp and embossed with white powder, swirled Stormy Sky Distress ink over the top then sprayed with studio calico shine ,,,, so shimmery IRL. I finished with ribbons from the  Crafty Ribbons Store.
Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some gorgeous creations so hop on over to the challenge blog to see themSmile
