City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 185 ~ Hold it

Hey I am back, and here for a new challenge at



This week Ros want us to make something to 

HOLD IT!

a container, a box, a gift pillow, whatever you can think of or find to served as a box/case/basket to hold something.

I dig out my PTI die to make a gift basket 


for a new friend Victoria, whom I met while I went to Germany in the summer.


Victoria lives in the same town as my girlfriend Ann, she drove us to Rosenheim while I was visiting Ann and also invited us to her house for afternoon tea.
Victoria loves needle work so I make a pin cushion, throw in a few holiday tags in the same basket for her.



Come play along with us, check out the lovely work of our guest Milagros and the team
