Someone please remind me it is still summer .....

Oh dear, I know it is August, but I've got yet another Christmas project to share with you today as I'm a guest designer for ABC Christmas for this fortnight's challenge.

ABC Christmas are being sponsored by StampFairy, and because I'm one of the Stamp Fairy DT, I've been allowed to join in the fun with the ABC Christmas girls. 


Ok, I admit I am really enjoying making some Christmas projects, and this one is a little bit special as I've been able to create something a bit different rather than a card.

So here's my sample creation for this fortnight's challenge, chosen by the lovely Samantha, which is "P for Presents", combined with a photo inspiration. 

Here's the photo inspiration we've been provided with :

And here's my project, a handmade decorated gift box with lid in red, green and white :

Card Recipe:
I hope to see you all join in the P for Presents (with photo inspiration) challenge at ABC Christmas, and please pop over to the challenge blog to see the other fab designs by the other DT members who are joined by some more of my Stamp Fairy teamies.

I've been inspired by :
Happy crafting

Awww!! Adorable!! And it fits perfect with the challenge!! Who doesn't love 'presents'!!

I had been on a 'Christmas in July' binge for awhile and really enjoyed it. Plus, it helped me get quite a few cards done ahead of time for the Holidays!!

Of course, I really LOVE Summer and will not want it to end, so I'm hoping that it last a whole lot longer...there is just NO way I want any true sign of winter or the cold!! No no no!! Such a dreadful thought!

Thanks for brightening my day!!
