Blue Christmas at City Crafters

Hello and Good Morning to you all ... I'ts a cold wintery morning here in the UK ... and our new challenge at City Crafter could not be more appropriate "Blue Christmas" ... Fortunately I am cosy and warm ... my heating all up and working ...
At City Crafter we have Linda Robinson hosting for us and the talented Tante Kathe guest designing with some great examples to get you inspired ... As always there is a prize on offer - this week courtesy of Linda who, by the way, is a very brilliant photographer as well as crafter! Leslie at A creative Mint has allowed us to use this fabulous inspirational photo ...



So on to my project  ... I made this cute little sled to hold a gift or treats ...


I couldn't resist putting this sweet little robin in the shot .... but I have to tell you that photographing this sled was so difficult ... trying to give a proper idea of the shape ...


Everything is cut from card and the template was a freebie from Here ... I glittered the rails and attached them with snowflake brads and just added some pearls 


I honestly can't remember who makes this paper ... it is a pad that I have had for a long time ... the bells, ribbon and trim are all from my stash 


I just popped in some candy canes and some sweets ... but you could put anything in there ... a candle fits nicely or maybe some hot chocolate and marshmallows would be good ... 

I hope you are going to join us this week ... I look forward to seeing you 
Till soon

It is funny that I am at your blog when you are at mine! I love your sleigh filled with treats. I may have to make some for my grandchildren, although I should hurry or Christmas will be here and over with! what a beautiful idea! I love the idea of blue for christmas, I used to have two trees and decorated one with all blue ornaments. Don't have room anymore!
