Countdown to Christmas - Day 18

Will you sing along with me - lol
'O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree' ......

Day 18 - just one week to go now - are you excited? 

Today's matchbox was made by Elena of

The box is decorated on the outside with a
beautiful metal Christmas tree charm encrusted with glittery snow!
This is a very poignant box as at the top of the tree is a little
breast cancer charm.  The theme continues on the inside
with the message of 'hope'

inside the little wrapped parcel was this

A hand painted heart shaped charm.

It's beautiful Elena, thank you!

If you'd like to see more altered matchboxes go over to
where Linda who is hosting this swap has provided links
to the blogs of all the participants.

Hope you can come back tomorrow to see box number 19!
