A long time between posts.......

Being a teacher is very rewarding and a wonderful career.....but doesn't leave much time for oneself after looking after my own family as well.  Stamping, sadly, often comes last on the list.
This project was one of those times where I had to combine family and stamping.....YEAH!! 
DD 1 wanted a birthday gift for a friend, and found the present, but wanted Mum to make a gift box.  So 9.45pm on Friday night, Mum sat down and whipped up this little number. 
And on the inside.......

Yes, purple and pink were the colours of the evening!!  A little bit of retired ribbon, but the rest is all current......except the Rimmel nail polish.....which is actually really good and doesn't chip.  Hehe....not that I bought any for myself :-)
Stamp Set: Lacy and Lovely, Label Love
Card stock: Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise
Other:  Retired ribbon and brad, Artisan Label punch
Happy Stamping.....Manda
