Anything but a card with Lexi's Creations!

Good morning you lovelies.....hope you're all well! A gorgeous morning
again today.....and one of the kids back to college.....2 back tomorrow
 then another on Thursday......yay, more craft time lol!
So anyway, for today I'm sharing my DT make for the new challenge 
over at Lexi's Creations and this fortnight we have the theme of 
ANYTHING BUT A CARD! A nice easy theme for you this time you
 have until September 14th to play and you could be the lucky winner of 
5 digis from Fairy Dust Crafts! For my DT make I had a go at a little
box scene....all guesswork, no measurements involved and this is how
it turned out...I'm quite pleased with it and can't wait to try it again!
I started with a scrap of blue card, die cut an aperture with a Spellbinder
nestie which I then used as a mat for the image, scored & folded down
 each side. Underneath the image you can just see some blue Christmas
paper....another scrap....then it was just a case of decorating the
front with the die cut trees, a snowman, snowballs and a pressie....oh
and the snowflakes at the top & the gems down the side!
So that's it from me for today....off to buy Nic some school shoes!
Thanks for calling......hope to see you at Lexi's!

  13. Fabulous little scene here Jo. Love how you went off piste and did it all without actual measurements, and it has turned out so beautiful.

    As Emma and Hook climb a beanstalk in search of a magic compass, Emma thinks about her past and how she met Henry's father. Meanwhile, Aurora in the Enchanted Forest and Henry in Storybrook both have the same nightmare.
