It's 'Flaming June' and the sun is shining on this beautiful Friday morning. Over at Bah! Humbug! Challenges it's always Christmas and we have another terrific theme this week - Surprise! Surprise!!For my DT submission I decided to attempt an Easel Card with Drawer to create a card and gift in one fell swoop! I found video instructions HERE and set to work with gusto ... well ... I set to work at least lol!
I made up the easel card using Smirk Christmas papers, which were already glittered and good old reliable silver mirri card for matting.
The drawer was super easy to make and I even wrapped pretty purple ribbon around it before securing with a brad. This not only looks nice but has the added advantage of holding it together if you're not too confident that your glue will stick ... tee hee.
Then, I got into a bit of a guddle making the wraparound base. UH OH! Due to 'user error' rather than inadequate instructions, I hasten to add, as everyone knows that concentration is not my strong point. Anyway, I managed to make it all fit eventually and have convinced myself that no one will notice the teeth marks unless they look closely. *snigger*
So there you are ... FINISHED! JOB DONE!
You'll be pleased to hear that we have 2 surprise new Guest Designers staying with us at Humbug Hall but I can't tell you who they are ... it's a SURPRISE! Hahahahaha! They have created fantastic projects to show off for this week's challenge so I suggest you hotfoot it over there PDQ.
There's also a fabby-licious Prize up for grabs for one lucky randomly selected entry, to mark the 1st challenge of a new month and you definitely wouldn't want to miss out, so grab your bits'n'bobs and head over for a looksee before joining in the fun. G'aaaaannnnn ... You know you want to!
