The 25 days of Christmas and a black eye!

I am thinking about Christmas , I know it's very , very early...  we've not had Halloween yet but I sign up for the 25 days of Christmas matchbox swap and I have started putting my swap together... 25 matchboxes each with a special gift inside.  I haven't got to that bit yet! Each matchbox is different but still in same colours. Red , green and old gold. 

I love the old world charm of the images I have used. They have Victoria feel to them. I am using a small gold bell to number each one. One to twenty five. I only have fifteen to go. The tinkling of the bells as I tie them on is driving Acorn crazy. But Willow is unfazed and went to sleep.

Also I had mail in the form of three ATC from my friend Sandi from Maximum Embellishment.
She thought they would make me laugh and they did because today I went to have my eyes tested... ha ha I have been seeing this image all day... so funny that they turned up to day of all days... Do you get the joke  A black eye, the red eye and pink eye... I love them.. Thank you Sandi you rock! 

Well back to work.
