My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

18 June 2011

A Little Box

Good morning everyone and a big welcome to my new followers, I hope you enjoy your visits and like what you see!  Well it's lovely and sunny here in Coventry this morning and I do hope it stays that way as it's my Daughter's Summer Fayre this afternoon - her last one before she moves up to Secondary school in September and they get to have their own stalls and she is also in the gym display too, so hopefully weather permitting I shall pop off later to see her.

I really don't know who is stealing the weeks from me, but the last two have flown by, I really thought this Summer term would be a long one, but with so much going on, it seems to be going very quickly indeed!

Anyway, todays make is my first Pay It Forward gift, which by now should have arrived at it's destination and I hope she liked it!

I filled it with some crafting goodies and a little tag.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Divas by Design Anything But A Card
Southern Girls 21 Anything Goes
Delightful Anything Goes
Crafts 4 Eternity24 Embelishments Beginning with "R"
Hooked on Craft 1 Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by today - I will be back on a catch up this weekend, so watch out for more posts!

Have a fab day!
