Hi everyone out there - is it me or does it feel as if Christmas is nearly here??  The same thing is happening again - I've suddenly been asked if I have any cards going spare.  So here I go again, I hate saying no so that means I need to make a few more - and as you know I just can't do quick cards - well only very rarely!  I guess having a mumble helps - not!  Anyway this fortnight the OSAAT theme is Anything Goes with the colour Red - so I chose to make this little milk carton gift box using a beautiful little digi from Beary Dust at the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.

This is our last challenge until January and we have the following prize for you to win


Digi - 'Hot Chocolate' by Beary Dust from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet
Stardust card - stash
Milk carton gift box template - internet tutorial
Ancient Peel-off Stickers - Create and Craft
Spellbinders Dies - Long Classic Rectangles Large die
Britannia Dies - Poinsettia die
Signature Dies - Joanna Sheen's 'Holly Berries'
Copic markers
'Stardust' glitter glue
Ribbon and Tassel - stash - again very ancient!
Very yummy mini Marshmallows (I didn't scoff many 'cos they were soooo sweet)

I'm really pleased with this little gift box and it was so easy to make - which is a huge bonus!  Hope you can find time to enter our last challenge of 2015, you have until round about January 8 2016 to enter.

Take care all of you and in case I don't post until after Christmas (hope not, but you never know!) enjoy yourselves and have a peaceful and relaxing time.

Hugs to you all.

Love Sue xxx
