Christmas in August - Deep Ocean DT

Evening all,
As it's Tuesday it's time for a new 

This fortnight it's all about....

'Christmas in August.'
and the prize is another GDT spot with us!

I've got into the swing of doing a few Christmas bits and pieces now so it doesn't seem so alien to think 'Christmas' every now and again. 
As LOTV have the same theme this month, it was the perfect opportunity to use one of their beautiful Christmas stamps that have had for ages and haven't had the chance to ink up until now. I had great fun colouring it in and it gave me the idea to add it to an advent box (made out of an old delivery box)

LOTV Christmas cupboard coloured with Distress Inks, silver gel pen detail and machine stitched edges
Papers - Magnolia
Magnolia DooHickeys - flag and poinsettia (the 'leaves' are green poinsettia doohickey cut up)
Sentiment stamp - Magnolia
Pom pom ribbon and bead string from stash

I cut each window for the matchbox drawers, covered the fronts with coordinating papers and adding different brads for handles

I did a 'patchwork' lid using more of the beautiful Magnolia Christmas papers

Challenge I would like to enter:
 Christmas in August

I will be back with my Marvelous Magnolia creation on Thursday, so until then continue having a lovely crafty week!
