DT Magnolia Down Under Challenges #97: Christmas in may

Yay! Time for another challenge over at  MDUC again :)
This time we´d like you to create something with christmas in mind. So time to dig out those Maggie christmas stamps and dies and being creative with those :)

I had this matchbox laying around screaming for me to alter it! ;)
So said and done I added some cs and Magnolia patterned papers from last years "A merry little christmas" collection. And yes: good news! You are not in need of glasses! ;) I have ACTUALLY done something in red. I love red and I adore all of those red creations I see in my friends blogs but I´m a total loser at it! It´s the colour I dread working with the most. At the same time I also want to create something beautiful in red so I asked a friend over this past weekend and we had so much fun talking and crafting... Well..I´m ashamed but this altered matchbox is all I managed to put togheter in all of those hours! That´s what happens when I think about going with red...;) This time I´m actually happy with how it turned out in the end though and that feels good :) Don´t count on seeing something red in here before december ;) He,he,he!

If you need some more inspiration to get started using those christmassy stamps and embellies I KNOW my wonderful and extremily talaned teamies has some great creations to show you over here.

Adorable ginger bread Tilda is coloured with distresser on 300 g watercolourpapers. Added lot´s of stickles star dust to her - as usual. Why break a trend that working for ya? ;)

The backside of the matchbox. I have used the pennents die from Whiff of joy and the fence die from Magnolia. The alphabeth stickers says: GOD JUL = MERRY CHRISTMAS. It´s a good thing both words are spelled with three letters in swedish ;)
