Hi, what a chilly day it's been, I thought a bit of warming up with some hot drinks was in order...I found this gift box freebie kit on one of the cardmaking sites and gave it a go (it's the pink one which comes out pre-coloured and you just glue it altogether) the blue one I made myself for the boy version using some d/load paper from Creative Cottage which is sadly no more. So the digi image on the boy one is from Paper Pretties 'winter warmer', (a win, many thanks), coloured with Promarkers, sentiment from a stamp in my stash.
The tops of both using an oval and some freebie stamps that came with a magazine.
Closer one
The inside bases lined.

Maybe a tangerine or two is less fattening. Hope you liked the inspiration...I'm afraid there's lots of challenges to get through mainly on the Christmas theme so I'll list them here..Papertake Weekly, Lexis Creations, Promarker, i Love Promarkers, Ladybug Crafts Ink, LEJ, Stamp and Create, Natalie & Amy, Paper Shelter, Allsorts, Love to create, Paper pretties Wednesday, Sentimental Sundays, Incy Wincy, Bunny Zoes, Creative Card Crew and Dream Valley. Whhhhopppeeee..that's a lot there! Many thanks for coming over, stay warm wherever you are, bye!

Very cute project. I like the tangerine idea. We all eat so many sweets this time of year and it is nice to have something a little healthier. Great job on both.

Thanks for showing us your shining stars at Creative Card Crew.
