I love nothing more than a drizzly day! This time last week it was 36 degrees and I felt so sad because I was sure winter was over, but it seems to be back for a last hurrah today. I love it!!!
Anyway, I'm not posting to chat about the weather, but rather to share a couple of projects I've completed today...
First up is my take on this week's Jingle Scraps weekly challenge over at Scrapz. It has been donkey's since I've had a chance to participate in the weekly challenges, but I simply had to make time this week when Kerryn challenged us to create one of Mel's Surprise Boxes with a pop-up inside. Here's mine;
My pop-out looks a little boring but it is intended as a spot to write a message to the recipient - kind of like a card but in box form!
Here's the box with it's lid on;
I also whipped up this quick card using the Mitten Weather collection from Cosmo Cricket, my #1 Christmas range for 2010;
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - Cosmo Cricket, Alphas - Basic Grey, Bling - Zva Creative, Foam adhesive.
I think this will be Tilly's Christmas card for this year.
Lastly, I'd like to share another of my 'slap-together' cards that I made after my post the other day;
I cannot share them yet because my Mum reads my blog and she hasn't yet received hers, but today I finished making my wedding invitations!!! I am so happy with how they turned out! I cannot wait to hand them out to our guests! I'll share them here once I've done so.
I think that's everything covered! Thanks for dropping by!
I'll leave you with this irresistably gorgeous pic of Ollie that I took the other day - he was helping me clean up after I did some baking. Doesn't get much cuter than this!!!
Have a great evening xxx
