Lollipop Ladies Challenge #10: Choc Honeycomb

It's time for another Lollipop Ladies Challenge and we have have this yummy treat of Choc honeycomb for you to be inspired. The bonus challenge this fortnight is something hidden.

Here is my creation. I am definitely in Christmas mode at the moment so made an Advent Calender for my kids to countdown to Christmas.

Close up with treats. Little choc Santas and chocolate coins.
The Santas don't hide so well but it's cute with their little heads sticking out.

It is so much more fun now that my eldest is four, he knows what Christmas is and gets excited. Makes Christmas all the more special. I was inspired by the choc honeycomb because as a child, mum always bought one of those choc advent calenders. I wanted to start the tradition with my kids and thought it would be nice to have a handmade one. I used Kaisercraft 'Tis The Season" papers. Perfect colours with the browns and caramel colours. If you want to make one yourself I got the idea here.

I have been wanting to make some handmade decorations for our home for a while now and finally this year I have got my behind into gear and started making some. The calender is my first one and I am going to make some decorations for the tree and around the house. I will post these when I have finished making them.

Enough babbling from me, please head over and check out the Design Teams wonderful creations here and give it a go yourself. There's a great prize to be won.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Wednesday.
