Mid Month Just For Fun

Good Morning blogland,
Can you believe we are already over 1/2 way through December?? Just where has the time gone?
I am here because today is the Mid-moth inspiration for the Just For Fun challenge blog.
This months theme was Christmas and started on 1st December so you still have time to enter, and there is a great prize up for grabs so do pop over and check out the DT projects and show us your creations.

This months prize was donated by our Blog challenge owner Elaine

Onto my project, I have made an Advent box using the Me To You Do Crafts Cd Rom and Papercraft kit. 

There is 24 drawers to hold a small sweet/treat to be opened every day like on a normal advent calander and then I have created an exploding box for the top which is numbered as '25' to be opened on Christmas morning.

SeemaCrafts Monthly Challenge - Christmas

Good Morning Blogland, 
Well this post was meant to go live yesterday morning but for whatever reason Blogger decided not to play and it didnt work so I have had to do this manually this morning.
Yesterday saw us start a new month so it also means we started a brand new challenge over at Seemacrafts

This month the challenge is CHRISTMAS, I know lots of people will be sick of the sight of Christmas stuff by now but I am really far behind on all my Christmas makes so this was a great opportunity for me to get making some things. 

There is a great prize up for grabs from the very talented Lindsay over at LEJ designs. The lucky winner will be able to pick 3 of her fab digi's from the great array of designs.
Ok so onto my project. I decided to make a candle gift box card as I have lots of these to make as gifts for neighbours and distant family so thought i would kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I did a tutorial on how to make these you can view this HERE
