Christmas Elf Box PFP & Some News

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!! I thought I would try and sneak in with this one for the Passion for Promarkers challenge. Their challenge this week was to use any colours and produce anything but a card for Christmas and New Year. If I'm quiet they will never notice.
I was asked by a dear friend to make a gift box for a Crimbo pressie she had. She attends art classes and they were all taking part guessed it Secret Santa. They have a competition for the best dressed gift, so when she set me the challenge I of course accepted. Wendy (the friend) has quite a sense of humour and her gift is a miniature art easel, mini paint tubes, mini canvases...........etc. The packaging was taking up a lot of room, so I broke it open and made some dividers for inside the box.
You may have noticed that I used this image before on one of my cards, but last time I coloured in red and green. The image is Pollycraft Cherry Kisses Elf and I love it. This time I went with blues, silver, green and white. I have used my usual amount of bling too. Sorry about the pics but the light wasn't great today.
Here is a little dimensional shot for you. Let's hope we win the best dressed secret santa!!
Now for the recipe................

I wanted to share with you all my exciting news........................Nikky at PolkaDoodles has asked me to join the team of Polkadoodlettes and I'm thrilled that they think me worthy. I can't wait to start working with everybody and using their stash. They might regret asking me after a couple of weeks, as they don't know how nutty I am yet. LOL.
Anyways that's enough excitement for one day. Take care and thank you all for the lovely comments. Nettie.xx
