Food, Glorious Food

Good morning blogworld,

You may have realised this is my busy week for DT's.  I think I know what gave it away - was it that I posted more than once this week?

Anyways reason for this post is that it's a new challenge over at Digi Choosday and, as you may have guessed, the theme this challenge is 'Food, Glorious food'.

You have until Thurs 19th Dec to enter and the winner will be announced on Tues 23rd Dec. The winner of this challenge will win a HUGE download bundle and our favourite Top 3 will also win downloads too!

So I decided to go for something other than a card for this challenge.  I'm making fudge as presents this year and thought this would be a cute presentation box.  I used a milk carton template from Paper boutique vol 1 and printed off two sheets of paper from Paper Boutique creative Christmas.

Unfortunately my printer is playing up a bit and printed a line through the paper - but I thought it looked fine so used it anyway!  My image is Emma Canning  - Christmas Pudding and I coloured her with my ProMarkers. I also printed off a Polkadoodles sentiment and highlighted it with chalks and glitter glue - a little bit of ribbon and the box is done!

The only other things I used were a nestie to cut out the sentiment and some chalk and Stickles for highlight.

Would be lovely to see you over at the challenge!  My Teamies have created some wonderful cards and projects for inspiration - do take a wander over and look, you won't be disappointed - I promise!

See you soon,
