Tellen's Place is Back

Hope this year has been kind to you all so far.
Tellen's Place Design's are back with a brand new challenge for you all. Easy one to start your year off, all you have to do is use at least one punch.
The divas have worked their own kind of special magic and created some beautiful and striking works of art so it's well worth you going to look at them all.

For my project this week I have used 4 punches.

Wavy line for the roof, lace for the curtains, corner rounder on the door and drippy goo for the "sugar" dripping from the eaves.
The entire box was made using thin chipboard then covered in a variety of plain and patterned papers, the 2 DP were the spiders web paper on the sides from Crafty Chaos and on the back from the Angel Company.
Where is my TPD image? Round the back.....

one of the new images available from the store called Witch Hansel. Coloured using distress Inks for witchy and promarkers for Hansel.

All this "effort" into producing a box to house some gingerbreadmen as a gift for a friend.
There were a few casualties which were gobbled up by my big kids here, which is why I always make a "double batch"

Now it's your turn to "Show Us Your Punches". Create something to show us and be in with a chance to win 3 images of your choice from the store. Terry has even provided a gorgeous little fairy freebie to get you started. Can't wait to see your projects.

I am entering this into the challenge over at Craft Your Passion for their "Anything Goes" Challenge.
Also into the challenge on Fab 'n' Funky make some thing that meets a need - I needed a gift box for the gingerbread men for a new year gift.
I am entering this into the challenge over at Rainbow Lady's challenge blog - It's all new to me. This is a new digi. Also used a new hot glue gun. I also used choc chips in the gingerbread men instead of my usual currents. The intended recipient doesn't like vine fruits!
