DT Monday - Mimosa meets Mr Penguin!

Lalalala.. Monday!! DT day!! At STAMP WITH FUN, the challenge is to make an Advent calender or a Christmas decoration. The winner (randomly) takes home a beautiful price from Tina a Hanglar stamp! I decorated a box and inside the box I put 12 tags (double sided) with the numbers 1-24. I filled the tags with a wisdom card, so instead of chocolate my friend will receive 24 wisdoms, I wonder if she will be happy, lol??

At There's Magic In The Air, you get this beautiful and fun image Free, Penguin Skating. The challenge this week is to "Use a reflective material (e.g., metallic paper, foil, mirrors, etc) on the project". Nina's price is beautiful brads and ribbons! As you can see I used a piece of foil decorated with a stamp and glitter glue around it. I also made, for the first time, an easel card. I followed Erika's instructions, you find it HERE!.

Recipe SWF:
Stamp: Mimosa Bildmalarna
Papers: My Minds Eye and Basic Grey
Flowers,brads: Making Memories
Ribbons: from stash

Recipe TMITA:
Stamp: (c)Nina.J.May
Paper: My Minds Eye
Charm: Bunny Zoe's Craft

All colored of course with Copics!

Nina said...

Nilla, ((mouth dropped open)) what a loving generous gift that advent box is!! It certainly is a wonderful idea and I might just have to fit time it to make one for a few friends! Did you make your box as well? I would be interested in knowing. It is just a wonderful idea and beautiful beyond words! Someone is going to be very blessed to receive a box of wisdom as well!

Your card is just stunningly beautiful from the colors to just everything!!

Wonderful things here on this blog!
