Little Boxes (bet you are singing that now lol)

 Morning and I saw these little boxes on Patricia's blog and made a couple -my DIL saw them and asked if I would make 25 for Christmas as an alternative to an Advent calendar so I made 25 fist of all for them both to share-quite theraputic making them so yesterday when my spine and shoulder were bad I just sat and made another 25 so they both had one.

I used all scraps of paper and numbers found in stash just have  to buy double the chocolates to put inside.

Welcome to my new follower ANGELA.

Two More Monochrome

 Morning and I have two more monochrome cards to share using the slimline aperture dies I bought off a FB selling page and no packaging.

The die-cut flowers/foliage are I think Memory Box a fitting name as the biggest lie I told myself when putting all small dies on magnetic sheets and throwing away packaging was I will remember whose they are lol, not sure I why I believed that because I can go in another room and forget why I am there!!! No sentiment yet as not sure whether Thank You or Birthday writing this I could have done one of each really!
