Warning!!! Picture heavy post
It's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Natascha's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Anything But A Card" - So no cards this time please. As soon as I saw the theme, I thought this is my chance to make a Christmas gift. When I went to a LOTV workshop to make recipe box, I knew I would make more, and my sister asked me to make her one. So this is for my sister. I didn't have a template so took the measurements and design from the one I made then just adjusted the size to suit. It's all re-inforced so very sturdy, I also made index cards too, leaving some blank for her to add her own catagories. Now I did think it was a bit plain without Embellishments, and was going to add ribbon and a bow, but then thought if she's taking the lid on and off will ribbon and embellies get in the way. What do you think, should I add anything?
And of course my favourite stamp was used, which may I add my sister said "you will never find a use for that stamp" when I bought it. Ha I did!
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.
Now to talk you through the pictures:-
