Morning Everyone,

I hope you are keeping well and have not had too much snow.  It was a rainy here yesterday so hopefully we seemed to have missed this latest batch of icy weather.

It is time for another challenge over at As You Like It and this time we would like you to tell us if you prefer to decorate bags or boxes and to showcase a project.  I have chosen a box as I think they are sturdier than bags, they are fairly easy to make and can make smaller presents such as jewellery look a bit more special.

For my little pillow box I have used paper from an 8" First Edition pad, Gilded Winter, but I stuck it onto a piece of white card first to make it that little bit stronger.  I have decorated it with a gold edged ribbon, a large white flower which I edged with gold coloured stickles and some pearl and gold embellishments.  The little gold balls are rescued from the Christmas crackers we had last year.  I've also added a little tag stamped in gold metallic ink.

The sponsor for the challenge is

with a $10 voucher for the lucky winner.

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the inspiration from the rest of the team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Anything Christmas Goes
Dream Valley - Christmas
Crafty Calendar - Christmas
Brown Sugar - Anything But a Card
Paper Creator's Crafts - Christmas and New Year
Noor Design - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I appreciate any comments you leave.  In the meantime keep warm,

Lynne x
