More Paisley....

Again, a bit late in posting this card, as the paisley stamps are now retired from the Summer Mini Catalogue....but I do still love them.

Dimensional Banner

Love it......if a bit busier than my usual style of late!!

Next in the birthday present series....

I've decided that this is a fantastic birthday gift for all the children's friends this year.  Personalised for each child. 

DD2's friend again, this time favourite colours are pink and green. 

BTW - this is a great way to use up all that retired DSP that is loitering around my house.  And I still love Raspberry Tart DSP.

Please excuse thumb nail on the edge.....I had to hold the frame at the right angle to get rid of the glare on the glass.

This is a close up of the girl, who I coloured with Copic Markers.  Sorry, can't tell you which markers or what the stamp is as both were borrowed while at a friends house.

Sale-a-Brate Easter, just a little late......

Hmmmmm.......not very organised am I?????

Anyhoo....better late than never.

These are a couple of the chocolate pull boxes that I made for my children's teachers for Easter.  I found a great special on Lindt chocolate just before Easter, so I decided to go this way rather than the traditional Easter Egg gift.  As I'd bought 70% cocoa dark chocolate, they were rather well received!

These are just 2 versions, that I remembered to take a photo of before sending said children off to school with the other versions, but I did use the Everyday Enchantment DSP from the SAB catalogue for all of the others as well.

I also made these cute acetate boxes for my last technique class.....had to buy the Easter eggs for this one, but then it doubled as a gift for the next door neighbours!
