....And A Snowman Under A Christmas Tree

The fabulous Gez has chosen the theme this week over at Stampotique Towers, and she's gone for er Christmas :-) As far as I'm concerned Gez you can pick this every week 'cos Christmas in July has really brought in the Summer! I must admit 99% of my Christmas stash is tucked away safely in the loft, but here's my take on the 12 Days of Christmas.

I've been admiring everyone's Artist Trading Blocks for months now, so I decided to make one of my own. So after three everyone, you know the tune...
On the 5th day of Christmas my Stampotique love gave to me
5 golden snowflakes
made with Giant Snowflake on shrink plastic, coloured with gold PanPastel.
4 calling birds made with the oh so cute Quails Cube 
3 French hens, made with 
both made with shrink plastic and coloured with Prisma pencils.
My 2 turtle doves are on the head of 
Grumpy Koala and the shrink 
and finally 
my snowman under a Christmas tree is my favourites

This was great fun to make, and I actually managed to measure and cut in a straight line!
So come on, get out of the sun and pretend it's Christmas (but without the stress)
I'm also entering this into the Christmas in July challenge at That's Crafty
I hope you like my box, and thanks very much for looking x
