Two Awards, A RAK and A Box!!

Still busy with buckets of water!!! My Brother is here at the moment trying to sort out a temporary measure but is struggling so it looks like we're going to have to put up with it until the Plumber can fit us in!! When I was catching up on my blogging last night, I visited Andrea's blog and she has made a card which is so apt for me at the moment.....it really did make me giggle, so please take a look and tell me what you think!!!
I received some lovely post yesterday from Sue who kindly stamped me some images and look at the gorgeous folder she made to put them in. It's beautiful Sue and thanks so much!


I also received two more awards!! This one is from Fran and was awarded to the Tilda and Friends Forum and I've been informed that as I'm a Member, I'm entitled to it!!!


The second award is from Zoe......



.....thank you so much girls. Makes no difference to me if I've received the award before, because I always feel touched that people consider me when handing the awards out!

The PTW challenge this week is a box tutorial by Claudia. I know I'm late again completing another challenge as the new one will be set tomorrow but thought I would have a quick go while the boys were out this morning. To be honest, I'm not happy with the finished article as I think it's too plain but at least it will do the job!!!




The actual box was really quite simple to make and looking at it now, I wish I'd used patterned card, however, couldn't find two of any pattern which tells me I should do a bit of shopping!!! I've used Bazzill c.s. in a turqoise and lime green and used my Cricut to cut out the flowers. The letters are stickers from Sue Dreamer. Brads are from my stash and ric rac ribbon is from Doodlebug. Did get a bit adventurous and made some dividers for the inside and used my SU punch to make the tabs. Fixed these onto the dividers with eyelets from my stash. Anyway, it serves a purpose because I have received loads of lovely images from all you kind girlies out there so I can now sort them and know exactly what I've got!! I can even fit Sue's image folder in the box as well!!

Time to stop now for lunch......hope you all have a good Sunday!!

Sorry to hear that there's still trouble with the plumbing...too true about Andrea's card. That gave me a giggle too! Hope the plumber rescues you soon. :)

Love the box! What a neat idea too. I need to find a way to store all my images and that looks perfect! Love the colors, a great display piece too. Great job with the challenge. :)

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
