Allsorts Challenge 445

It is Saturday again and that can only mean the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week my lovely teamie Helene is the host and she has chosen
A perfect challenge for this week as it has been trying to snow here for the last few days following Storm Caroline, so far we have not had the heavy snow that has been forecast.
Check out what my lovely teamies have to share with you here along with all the challenge details.
This week l have gone for something completely different - l went to Hobbycraft on monday for a sewing kit gift and came out with loads of goodies including this MDF advent tree which l gave a makeover

A work in progress

Decorated edge

MDF Tree Hobbycraft
Acrylic Paint
Snowflake stencil 
Gems, Numbers

We have been generously sponsored by. Marianne Design

Firstly l painted the tree shape and drawers in blue acrylic paint, when dry l used the stencil to apply snowflakes with the silver acrylic paint. I added touches of silver randomly on edges, when completely dry l added a gem to the centre of each snowflake on drawer fronts as well as a gem on each drawer knob. I also bought a little box of numbers - which were next to the trees on the shop shelf and you would have thought that each box had enough, not enough No. 1's so hubby just trimmed a few 7's down.....shame on you hobbycraft as l was not making a 60 mile round trip to buy another box.  Anyway job done and l am pleased with the result - just need to get a few treats for the remaining days.

Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x
