Craft Challenge DT Project - Red + Challenges

Good Morning, I hope you are all having a lovely start to your day. It's our regular day to pick up my twin Grandson's from school, play with them, feed them and keep them amused until 6.30pm, then my Daughter brings the oldest Grandson to us. They then all stay with Grandad whilst Janie and I attend night school, we are doing an IT course ( this is our third year) and we are doing really well, I don't think I would ever have blogged if I had not attended it.

Any way I digress, here is my project this week for C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 34 which this week is a colour theme of RED, you can do anything you choose but your project must be primarily RED.
Our sponsor this week is the lovely Donnas Den of Crafts so do pop over to C.R.A.F.T. to find out the details of the prize and of course to see the other DT's creations.

I've made a STASH CASH BOX, well that's what I'm calling it. As you know it was my birthday on Sunday and beside all the lovely crafting gifts I also received some cash and as I had some Christmas cash left over I decided to make a little box to keep my cash in, I will be adding to it weekly and spending it in March at the Big Craft Show in Glasgow. My Daughter Janie is also putting a weekly amount away in my box so that we can go together and have a fab day out.
That's why I've used the sentiment of Here Come The Girls!! look out craft show!!!

The chocolate toffee box in the bottom picture (emptied on Sun of it's contents) is the template I used to make the box, I've kept it and it will get used again and again so I'm recycling it over and over.

The challenges I'm entering are:
1. Die Cut Dreams Challenge: Recycling - hope my box counts
2. Passion for ProMarkers Challenge: Any colour this week with the theme of Girls, Girls Girls.
3. Quixotic Challenge: Ink up an old stamp. Which I have done.
4. Incy Wincy Designs Challenge: Colour me Wonderful - use your favourite medium.

Thank you for popping in to visit, I hope you enjoyed your stay and that you will come back and see me soon.
