Gift time and this weeks candy



Our Sarah would like us to Make a Gift at Allsorts this week and our super sponsors are A Passion for Stamps and the Craft Barn and a warning in advance, this post is rather picture heavy !

Before I tell you about my DT creation I want to say thank you so much to you all for your kind words of understanding both on my blog and e.mails whilst I continue through my copy and past comment period, you have no idea how much they are appreciated.

OK now for my share and due to being Mrs Fumblefingers what I intended making for this theme didn't materialise as stamping remain a challenge to say the least, so I came up with this alternative which was more forgiving when it comes to accuracy.
********
The lovely floral images as Nicecrane Vintage Flower Postcards all printed onto linen cardstock and the box was made using my screoboard, covered with Tonic DP's and some die cut leaves and Roses made with Ruth's Tonic punch and stamp Rose set.

********
I won't begin to tell you how long this took me with all the fumbling about but I did thoroughly enjoy making it, so thanks for the theme Sarah.

And I thought I would give this to one of my DIL's as a little extra for her Birthday in a couple of weeks, she loves anything pretty and feminine so I think these will appeal and be useful at the same time.

********
I also thought I would share this little gift box as well, again using Nicecrane images from the recent Joyful Christmas release, I really fell in love with these sweet Victorian children and it will be lovely filled with sweets.
                         
The images are really useful for making quick cards, but of course the sky is the limit if you want to go to town with all your lovely embellishments.

And if you want to try out this little box the instructions are here on one of my older posts.

Now onto my Saturday candy and last weeks candy winner is Karen, please mail me with your full name and postal addy. And this week I have a gorgeous Art Deco stamp and feathers from the Urban Stamps range.

    15. A really delightful idea & so pretty & feminine,the tiny roses ribbon trim you've used looks as if it was made for the rose patterning of the box itself & it's beautifully set off by your white lace.
      Do take care & it remains a delight to visit.
