I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Nothing fun going on here this weekend,,,,,my husband is working, so I'm working on some cards!
Next weekend, however, we're going on a camping rally here in FL, and we're having a Yankee Swap,,,,,,,I have to bring something worth 20 dollars.
So I decided, since I got this fabulous paper for my birthday, and I just bought some amazing Stampin Up stamps (discontinued, of course,,,,,why is it I always fall in love with Stampin Up stamps AFTER they are discontinued??), so I thought I'd make a set of cards and a matching box,,,,,,
and boy did I have fun!!!!!!!
|Here is the box, itself, with that gorgeous Graphic 45 paper, By the Sea.|
|Close up of the Bow. Isn't that "note in a bottle" darling?|
|Cards in the box, with envies.|
|Here they all are laid out so you can see each one.|
|And here I wanted to show you my NEW LOVE,,,,,,,,Derwent Inktense pencils! Oooo la la, love that vivid color!|
I had SUCH a hard time NOT adding bows, buttons, gems, etc,,,,,,,but since this is a gift set, I don't want the recipient to have any issues with postage and have them go unused due to that,,,,,,,
so, I made up for the FLATNESS of the cards on the cover of the box!
I hope you enjoyed the box and cards! Leave me a note so I know to go see YOUR blog!!!!!
Thanks for looking, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
