Secretcrafters Saturday Challenge 166. Anything Goes.

this challenge lasts for 2 weeks. I have made these little table boxes for the Home where my dad lives. The staff will add a few sweets to them On Christmas day. I have used the mini milk carton die from Stampin Up, available to order from me, The holly leaf is from a Sizzix long die and the bird is a Stampin Up punch. I had to make 32 of them and enjoyed every minute. I love making boxes and things.

Have a lovely Christmas everyone and see you very soon.

Hi Everyone, It is my turn this week to set the challenge. I did intent to do an outer space card but I have had extra childminding duties this week. So didnt get to make my card until yesterday afternoon. My granddaughter Megan has tonsillitis so I have been looking after Finn so mum could look after Megan properly. She had a temperature of 103.8....Today she is feeling much better. We were so worried yesterday about her. Anyway back to my card. I used a really old Penny Black stamp.....Most of my Penny Blacks are a good few years old. lol. Papers are from a pad of First Edition papers called Spring Feast. I used my Stampin Up punches.
Coloured with copics.
Thank you for looking.

The I got my Martha Stewart Fern punch and using an old pack of Hot Off The Press Christmas papers, I punches loads and loads of fern. I got in a right old mess with the glue but Im happy with how it turned out. I hope you like it too.

The first Set, is Tre Chic. I have to admit the first card, with the 30 on, I cased. If this was your card, Im sorry I dont have your name to credit you.

It makes a nice change to have everything co-ordinating to make some quick cards with little effort.
