Ava's Treat

Hello back again!!! I have been messing about today as we never got to go to the Christmas Market, force gale winds kept us in so I made this "Easel Card drawer"  The backing papers are Nitwits, Marianne dies,Wild Orchid flowers. I have seen lots of these about but none with metric measurements and I am not so good with feet and inches these days, So I just made a drawer and put the easel card on top.  I hope you like it.
I plan to fill it with sweet treats for my Granddaughter Ava. shhhh her mum doesn't know!!!!! 
I would like to enter this into
Wild Orchid Crafts  "Easel Cards"
Delightful Challenges "Blue Christmas"
Moving Along with the Times "Last Minute Christmas"
