Samantha's Candy Challenge :-)

Samantha aka Penrith Crafts,my lovely Boss on the ABC Christmas Challenge, has a surprise candy on offer ,, all we have to do is join in with her challenge to make something ,,, BUT ,, not a card :-)

Well I have seen a couple of these faux leather wallets on buddies blogs and have been meaning to have a go at making one too. You can see the instructions here :-)

I used SU Lovely Lilac card and some stripey paper and brad from Papermania :-) I embossed the card with a Tim Holtz Burlap folder, inked with Dusty Concord distress ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I also got out my sewing machine for the edges . The instructions suggest using a magnet fastening ,,, which I tried but it wouldn't stay closed so I stuck a bit of velcro on it ,,, not very nice looking but it worked !! I remember someone else saying that they had the same problem too ,,,,sorry but I can't remember who it was now ! :-/ if you know who it was please let me know so I can link to her blog too xx

this is for a friend ,,, can't say any more cos she might read this !!!! suffice it to say this is her fave colour !! :-)

wishing you all a very Merry Christmas ,,, hope you're all enjoying a fab Christmas eve ,,, we are listening to Christmas Carols and enjoying a glass of sherry :-) My turkey is stuffed ( Paxo sage and onion ,,,, I love it !!lol ) and the pressies are wrapped and under the tree ,,, being guarded by Jessie ,,, bless her ,,, there is a bone wrapped too and she isn't leaving it there for the cats to steal ,,, lol :-)
