Totally Papercrafts - Challenge # 43 - Snow & Snowflakes.

Good Morning Crafters.
Friday here again ~ where are the days going? This week as flown by, like the wind. The weather as just been awful hasn't it? So glad we don't live anywhere near the floods. My heart does go out to those that have suffered's just terrible...with Christmas being so close too.

So we have Totally Papercrafts Challenge, which as been picked by the lovely Caroline. The theme is Snow & Snowflakes.
I arranged a swap/challenge between us all ( the design team ) for a little fun of our own. We have altered large kitchen match-boxes, with a Christmas theme and filled the box with lots of Christmas craft goodies. I decided to show you mine for the TPC challenge.

I of course have used a Tilda - just had too. Glittered her jacket and the around her feet for the snow. Used a large die-cut snowflake, in which I added small gems and a large brad in the middle.

The ribbon on the box.....was a freebie. Actually I recycle lots of ribbons and buttons. This ribbon was on some PJ's which were bought for one of my girls last year from Primark. Bless them, they all took them off, neatly folded them and placed them in my ribbon box. I have brain washed them well, haven't I? The ribbon is actually lovely...soft pink with white snowflakes. Lush!

Flower from Wildorchidcrafts - link on my side bar, for those that have never shopped there. They have such a wonderful selection of flower's. A must have!!!
"Let it Snow" tag is an old Craftworkcards die I bought a couple of years ago. Finished off with a heart and key charm.

This is the contents of the box - it's amazing what you can fit in there. Such a lot of things. I placed all blue and white bits & bobs in mine. From flowers/labels/ribbon/brads and charms. So one lucky Lady will have lots to play with.
Well, thank you so much for popping over - do come again. I look forward to seeing all your lovely cards in this weeks challenge....not too hard for you all this week!
Congratulations to the winner and top 3 - every ones cards were amazing. Well done. Do check out the design team blogs and leave them a comment too.
I will be entering this match-box in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Sparkle!
Also Just Magnolia Challenge - week 83 White + 1 other colour.

Do have a great weekend....don't over spend on your Christmas shopping. Hey, I have only bought one thing, and thats Holly's first bike. Can't wait to take her out on it. She will love it!
Take Care
