Three Green Trees

After a very busy weekend, it has taken until now to feel like doing anything! We had two dinners and a lunch and then my folks for tea on Sunday night, so needless to say I had to catch up with the ironing last night. Tomorrow is Emma's Graduation exhibition - so no more being a student!! Then I'm off to Melbourne for work until Sunday night - so probably no more posts until next week.
Tonight's post is for this weeks LIM Challenge - Colour Green.

So onto the challenge 
It's the first week of the month and so once more it's a Colour challenge, this week we have chosen
We're being kind, thinking that this challenge may allow you to catch up on any Christmas cards you may need to make... but of course any occasion card will be wonderful

Xmas Chockie Boxes

A glorious afternoon and what better way to spend it, than to have lunch and a craft shop tour with our Thursday craft group - as everyone is getting busy leading up to Christmas we decided to have our lunch early this year. We had a lovely lunch at Endue, then went to Paper Flourish and Craft Worm - have to go on lengthy detours due to the road works! Needless to say it didn't stop us spending up! My penance was doing the ironing when I got home - (I know Jacki - I used that word again!!!)

Thanks to inspiration from Merry's blog - I decided to follow her link to Kaye at Craft Mad's tutorial for card / chocolate boxes - I made one each for the girls in my craft group - I photographed them before I filled them - but you can get the idea. I had trouble with the tabs sticking down so I think I will have to try glue next time. Thanks again for the inspiration and the tutorial.
