Happy New Year!!!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and if you were lucky enough to receive some new crafty goods, I hope you are having fun playing with them.
I know that we have only just finished with Christmas, but we at ABC Christmas Challenges love to make Christmas cards all through the year knowing that we won't have a last-minute panic come December. It would be great if you want to join us this year - we work our way through the alphabet over the year and each month we have some fun challenges to get your juices flowing. And did I mention that we also have a prize each month??? What's not to like as they say lol!
Our first challenge themes are
Helen is our lovely host this month and she has a great prize for the winner.
A for Anything Christmas Goes
This is a gift box I made with a die from The Greetery called Stationery Box. I used yellow and grey card for the box and decorated it with stamps from the Winter Birds set from My Favorite Things. I used coloured pencils for the colouring and want to practice more with them this year so any tips will be welcome.
The candy-stripe circle sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I added little magnets to the box to keep it closed, and it contained a necklace I had bought as a gift for my daughter. I love making a gift box like this because it is very versatile and doesn't need to be wrapped. I hope to use the box dies again to make some notelet gift sets.
