The DT at Artfullcrafts have been putting up some

very cool Christmas Ideas.

They are also running a Christmas challenge, which

i decided to join in with.The first one was to make

a simple Christmas card...... Not being much of a

card maker i thought "simple" yep i can do that hehe

So above is my card,i used 2 pages out of a 6x6 pad

and a couple of punches ,i actually had fun doing this

once i got going.Check out there blog here.

Alter it monthly

My sister lost her beloved cat and wonted a very special place

to keep him close to her,i had seen something like this in a shop

so decided to have a go at making her one.

Firstly i painted the box with acrylic black paint ,then using stamps

i stamped using versamark ink then embossed it with gold in the pattern

i desired,my theme was ancient Egypt as her cat looked just like this one

but he was cream.

The inside was black,and the inside of the top i embossed a symbol,

(which means ever lasting life)

I got a cat tag with his name on it and placed it in the circle.

i added a small amount of blue around the bottom of the box to match the cat and

to pull it all together .I attached the cat with 3m glue.
