All Wrapped Up ~ Crafty Individuals Challenge & Blog Candy Winners

Wasn't sure if I'd manage to enter the Crafty Individuals Challenge this time, as I'm all christmas crafted out, but it is such a lovely challenge blog that I just had to LOL. The theme is All Wrapped Up.

This is one of the set of three boxes made for a friend and is all wrapped up now, but I forgot to take a photo of the inside of the box, but it is lined with some prima paper. It is painted with my usual matt paint from B& Q, The main image is CI - 302 stamped in archival ink and painted with water colours.

Whilst on the theme of boxes I thought I'd show you the final one. Made in the same way. Using my favourite set of Tim Holtz papillon stamps & another favourite, carte postale from stampendous cling. This one is lined with Bo Bunny paper.

Still taking pics with my phone :-( I had ordered a great panasonic camera for christmas, but have had to claim a chargeback on my credit card as the company look decidedly dodgy and haven't delivered it. So no xmas present for me until the new year now oh dear, as Jason Orange (from TT) would say 'Buy cheap, you buy twice'  LOL.

Now Blog Candy Winners, sorry its late, I'm so like Alice's White Rabbit even more so at this time of year.

Winner of set one is Marjorie's Owl &  Elly is the Winner of set two, if you could both let me have your addresses I will post out ASAP.

Thank you to everyone for entering & Happy Crafting. XX

A stunning box Paula, love it!! Despite taking photos with your phone they look great!

By the way,Itkapilli has new java script codes on her blog for her backgrounds, with bloggers new settings a lot of her old ones come up wonky. Putting the new code in sorts the problem. (Yours comes up funny on my computer at least....)

These are stunning, you have such a delicate and beautiful style and it is always a joy to look at your blog. So sorry about your camera. There is always something that goes wrong at Christmas. I ordered a gift voucher for my niece and it got sent to me instead of to her!
