Anything But a Card...

I know you will find this hard to believe but this creation has nothing to do with Christmas! (apart from the fact that it could be a Christmas pressie that is).  The challenge at Jellypark Friends this week is "ABC- Anything But a Card".  I have been so short of time lately that I had to try & make something that didn't take too long so I used my Ultimate Pro to make a box using Basic Grey card stock & the "Clothes, Shoes, Handbag Shop" digital stamp, which is one of today's new releases.  I paper pieced the shop & dress & coloured the rest with ProMarkers.  The finishing touches were Glamour Dust (almost obligatory lol), a circle flower, ribbon & brad.  The box is filled with some childrens jewellery that I made.  The DT have absolutely excelled themselves for this challenge so I hope you will check their designs out & that you can find time to join us (& perhaps make some last minute Christmas gifts).

The challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Anything Goes (with ribbon)
Delightful - Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad - Send Someone a Smile... No Christmas or Birthday Cards
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
The Paper Variety - Anything Goes
Anything Goes - Anything But a Card

I'm sorry I haven't had much time for commenting lately but work has been very busy & I've (still) got lots of stuff to sort out for Christmas (I love this time of year!).  Hopefully I will soon be organised & be able to visit all your fabulous blogs :o)
