JayGee's Nook Challenge 14

Good Morning Crafty People,

I can't believe that another month has flown by...  but here we are, the last Sunday in November.  And this means a new CHALLENGE for JayGee's Nook.  I don't know about you, but with this challenge I have finally started my little gift baskets for all my boys' teachers.  Here is the inspiration photo, and it should certainly get your Christmas juices flowing (Hahahaha!).

I have kept my design very CAS (this certainly helps when you have a lot to do LOL!),  I have used MFT heart and snowflake die (sprinkled with dazzling diamonds), and a simple sentiment from Hero Arts.

For this little gift box I have used a simple christmas tree from Hero Arts and some absolutely gorgeous paper from MME 'Breeze'

Stamps:  Laughter & Joy (Hero Arts), Holiday Sayings (Hero Arts),
Card:  Kraft, Bitty box basics (PTI), Breeze (MME)
Ink:  Chocolate chip, real red, kiwi kiss, crumb cake
AccessoriesTwine, dazzling diamonds, Favor it box 2 & 3 (PTI), heart & snowflake die (MFT)

Thanks for stopping by
and have a great day ...

xx Ange

PS:  I apologise for the photos, I will replace them shortly ... :)
