A Box for me.

Hi all,
Just a short post today. I was playing with some boxes and came up with this one. It will have notelets in it and is a present for a friend of mine. 

I made the box from white card and decorated it with a red card with gold embossing on it.
The fastener is covered by a gold button and a red card candi in the centre
As it has an oriental look I decided to enter it in this challenge.

Best Wishes,

April Just for Fun Challenge Card

Good morning everyone,
It looks like spring is here with the daffodils in full bloom and Easter just around the corner. And the temperature is definitely a bit warmer.  The sun is struggling to part the clouds and shine as I write.
This months word at the Just for Fun Challenge is EASTER and can be found HERE.

 I took my cue from the daffodils and decided to draw some. In the end one splendid daffodil made it to the card and as it was for a friend I put this sentiment on it. 

Here is my hand drawn daffodil. It is coloured with Pro Markers. The Spellbinders die behind Is coloured with distress inks.

So hop on over to the Just for Fun Challenge Blog and enter your Easter card.
You will find lots of inspiration from the Design Team and from the other entrants.
I'm entering this in the following challenges
I hope you all have a Happy Easter and a wonderful Spring.

Christmas Fun DT card for April

Hi Everybody,
Isn't the year flying. Here we are into April with Easter in a couple of weeks, the Summer not far off and I'm making Christmas cards. This is because I'm in the Christmas Fun Challenge group HERE 

The challenge for this month is a card for a man or Anything goes. Its up to you what you make.
This month I made a simple card that could be used for a man or woman. I folded an A4 card in half and folded back the front to the left. The topper is from Kanban and the die cut is a Spellbinders Adorning squares die.
I love snowmen and this one is so cute.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

Here is the inside, I over did the the foam pads so had to put an image on the inside of the topper to cover them up.  It finishes it off.

Lots of sparkle too.

I'm entering this card in these challenges,

 I'm making more of these so I'll have a good few cards for Christmas and you can use this idea for any type of card. 
Have fun playing along
