ANYTHING BUT A CARD

Hi there it's just me again ...What do you think of my desk calender, the object of this was to use these little boxes from CRAFTY RIBBONS which they use as button boxes to send to the customers with the buttons in....now why throw them away when you can make good use of them?? there is only two on here but you could stack more together if need be. I think if you had12/ 14 of them they would make a fab advent calender decorated...as the draws would open from both sides..anyway that's next years project as i need to save all the boxes first..lol
Which leads me too the challenge which is starting today over at CRAFTY RIBBONS CHALLENGE BLOG, "ANYTHING BUT A CARD"
All the ribbon used on here is from CRAFTY RIBBONS love the dotted ribbon, one of my favourite, used a brad to attach the ribbon loops on the front of the boxes to make the draw which can keep your paper clips in or drawing pins or anything really. I have stamped "Today is a new day" on the top next to the calender. Images have just been coloured in grey with a highlighted colour , and the buttons are also from CRAFTY RIBBONS
I am adding this creation to the following challenges
karen doodles......black and white + 1 other colour
Heart song inspiration.....anything goes

bye for now and thanks for popping by,
hugs carol x
