Little Box, BIG Pressy!!

 Had to try out this box card after Kate demoing  it at Oldmeldrum on Saturday. Came home with the template as no way would I have remembered how she did it. Simple when you know how! Was a super day, met some new crafters, hi Trish, it was lovely to have a good natter and a laugh and thank you for your kind comments since on my blog. Hope we meet again some day. Bought a few new stamps and a Snowflake die and some yummy papers. Oh, and a couple of odds and ends, ha ha, you know how it goes! Just need to get creative now!  Saying that, I decided to do some much needed housework yesterday and I know why I don't do it too often. Went and done myself in and didn't feel like playing with my stash after. Went off to bed early and hopefully going to make up for it at my friend Auds later today and catch up with you all later. Going to spend the afternoon colouring and a bit of chit chat in between. Ooooo, wonder if she's been baking again lol! She made a mean fresh cream cake last week.

Lost & Found Christmas papers
Marianne Die Merry Christmas/Poinsettia
Cheery Lyn - Holly Flourish
Red/Kraft card 

Could give this to Hubby! He could buy me a new neckless for Christmas you think or a Craft Voucher, on second thoughts, both sounds good to me lol and put it inside, just enough room I think. Would definitely have to drop a few hints what you would use it for! Oh dear I do give my dear hubby a hard time of it. - Make your own Embelishments

bye for now.

This is really lovely Carol looks like a lot of work tho.. but a great result. Im sorry to dissapoint you with the fresh cream cake you will have to settle for a piece of M&S swiss roll which is yummy too. Aud x

Fabulous box Carol. Beautiful DPs and die cuts, all so well put together.

Kat said...

Love your box Carol. I made one too on Saturday night. Even added some Christmas paper but didn't get round to finishing it! I've got a wee list of things I need to do first. Enjoyed Kate's demos and got a lot of ideas!

Hope you had a lovely afternoon at Aud's.

Hi Carol, love your box, I have made a couple but not so fancy as yours. I thought they would do for money holders for the grandchildren this year. Your one looks lovely and Christmassy, must try some more. I hope your feeling a bit better, and yes I do hope we bump into each other again I love to listen to the girls chat about their cards. Take care...Trish.
