Snowflakes @ Ladybugs Craft Ink

Ho Ho Ho it's getting close to that time of year and I have so many lovely things planned first!
This is scheduled because I'm away in London, as last night I was lucky enough to get tickets to go and see the Royal Variety Performance! I'll let you know with my next post how it was.

I'm back today with a new challenge at


and this week the very lovely Diane has set us a theme of


That was the easy bit! Queen Ladybug went and made it more of a challenge for us (no resting of our little ladybug wings for her team!) and sent us all a plastic box to alter for this challenge and boy did I find this a challenge!!

At first that was!! I got really into this after an awful lot of stressing.
I filled mine with candy canes that were just £1 from the local supermarket and trimmed it up to match the colours. I also stuck on lots of sparkly Nailheads that are available from LCI  HERE. 
They come pre glued and I used my Kandi Kane to stick mine, don't look too close - I slipped twice and melted my box a bit!!

The boxes are also available at following sizes and price
4 1/8" x 4 1/16" x 1" - 45p each
5 5/8" x 5 1/2" x 1" - 60p each
4 7/8" x 6 5/8" x 1" - 60p each
6 1/8" x 6 1/16" x 1" - 70p each
4 1/2" x 5 7/8" x 1" -  60p each
These are the perfect size to fit standard size cards in if you wanted to use them as a gift box for a set of homemade notecards too!
Head over to the main challenge blog for lots of inspiration from the very talented bunch of girls and check out all the details of this weeks challenge while you're there.

That's all from me, thank you for stopping by
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
