More gift boxes

I've had a lovely day out today. Visited my Mum and her hubby and then met up with my friends Lynsey and Lisa for an Italian lunch. We exchanged cards and pressies so I can now share two of their gift boxes with you. I've really had fun making these this year.

The first one is an LOTV image and I used the fab sketch at Lili of the Valley. I made the box using the Top Score again and some sheets of Christmas card I bought at the NEC. Papers are DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas. The borders were cut with an MS simple scallop punch. I added lots of glitter to the fur and die cut some snowflakes using Marianne dies and glitter card.

I am also entering this into the challenges of:
Bunny Zoe Sparkle and Shine
By the Cute and Girly Children
Cupcake Non traditional Christmas
Incy Wincy Non traditional Christmas
Everybody Art Self made present
Crafty Creations Photo inspiration

This one was made using a Pollycraft digi image and BG Eskimo Kisses papers with Papermania glitter strips. I am entering this into the digi challenge at Stamp Something and Sparkling Christmas at Digital Tuesday.

I visited two craft shops today and picked up some half price Christmas goodies, lots of papers so that's me off to a good start for making next year's Christmas cards.
