Stampin for the Weekend - My challenge

Morning stampers......another Friday that means another Stampin for the Weekend challenge and guess's a challenge that I've come up with entitled Festive Goodie Box.  Thought I would do something a lil different and get those grey cells!!!!

And what I'd like you to create is, as the name suggests, a christmassy themed box with the added extra of it being distressed....i.e. tattered 'n' torn.  Over at split coast stampers, I saw THIS TUTORIAL but there are plenty of others on that site or you tube, or if you already have designs of your own just go with that, as long as it's a box to hold some christmassy treats that's fine.

I've gone with my favourite colour scheme of cream, brown and gold and  followed the tutorial over at SCS to make one of the boxes, the other I used my new Sizzix Bigz die Box#3.  The scrummy papers are MME "Signature Christmas" oh they really are lushious, shame the photo doesn't show the lovely glittery bits or the delish Ferrero Rocher that's inside the box, mind you I've eaten them all!!!!  The images and sentiments  are Stampin Up "Old Fashioned Christmas"

And if you enter my Stampin for the Weekend challenge, you could just win this lil lot.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all of my lovely SFTW teamies who have come up with some absolutely fantastic boxes this week and even though some of them were completely out of their comfort zone, they did an outstanding job I'm so chuffed and very proud of them, well done girlies.  Our two guest design team members this week are Gry-Heidi and Benedicte, thank you ladies for joining us at SFTW and what amazing boxes you've created too.  Please pop over to check out these lovely ladies blogs.

Well I am getting all excited, cos on Sunday I'm going to the NEC for the very first time.....I can't wait....YAY!!!!!  I've been wanting to go for the last couple of years and not got around to it.  But my luvly Taffy mate Clare asked if I would be interested in going with her......would I!!! So we're meeting up really early Sunday morning for the coach trip there,  ooooo I don't do Sunday mornings usually.....pmsl.  I know most peeps are going on Saturday but if any of you are going on Sunday, please let me know would be great to meet up. 

Right gotta dash, I'm off to the hairdressers to have me hair coloured, cut and blow dried.  I usually just colour my own hair but as I've  not been pampered for ages  this is my treat to!!!!
