2 Projects again - a card and a gift - D

Tonight I have made another card, which I think may be my final one.  I used an image from the internet and the frame is a cheery lynn die cut.  I used glossy accents over them both just to give a bit of a shine.  I stamped using a music stamp by Darcies and used distress ink over the top.  I then distressed a piece of card and used the inks over that also.  I made the sentiment on word.  I needed a quick and easy card as to be honest I am almost Christmassed out!

This has been entered into the following challenges

Craftymess - vintage christmas 28d

LEJ designs - santa coming to town 31d 

For my final project for tonight I put together a tray like shape using chipboard.  In fact it was a pretty crude way to make a shallow type box.  I lay the chipboard pieces together and used masking tape to hold them whilst I lay scraps of white paper with pva glue.  It worked. I then used my fave tin foil effect.  Just love it.  i then printed alot of family photos from my pc and collaged them on the bottom.  I then mod podged the entire item.  I made this for my father to sit on his table next to him so he can place his keys, pens, book, glasses etc and get to see my family at the same time.  I just hope he likes it.  I think I will get him a book token to go with it.(just in case!)

Well that is definitely it for me for today.. well early morning!
I hope you like my projects and feel free to visit me again real soon.  Oh I forgot to mention that my challenge blog has an Anything goes challenge for another 2 weeks. - ECLECTIC ELLAPU.
