Another box

Hi Ya everyone,
This is another box for Christmas. This one is for Leigh-Anne's teacher, Mr Frances who has quite the sweet tooth.
I have used a Dulux paint again, can't tell you the colour because I have lost the label, tutt tutt. The black and white paper is from my Glitter Stack. The chipboard "J" is from the $2 shop. Ribbon and other card stock are from my stash and a little of Kindy Glitz to blend it with the paper.
Of course I still need to add the chocolate which for Mr Frances will be Turkish Delight because I believe this is his fav.
That's it for me for now I'm off to have a crafting afternoon and hopefully finish a couple of project that I have only half done.
Thanks for stopping by

A Simple Card

Hi ya everyone,
First I would like to apologise for the background of my photo, as you can see my craft mat is well used and very colourful...lol
I have made this card for one of my workers who is about to leave me cause she is 4 weeks away from having her second baby boy.
I have coloured the image with my wonderful promarkers, (I have just treated myself to some newbies) the ribbon and cardstock are from my stash and the watermark is done with a rollergraph, (I think this is a SU product I'm not 100% sure I haven't used them for ages)
Just a nice simple card as I have a million and one things to make before Christmas, plus a few birthday cards.
Must go now got to get my boys off to bed as they went to bed late last night and had a very early morning this morning, little rascals.
Bye for now

First of many,Lets hope

Hello Peeps,
I know it has been a very long time since my last post, between school holidays, home renovations and my work load becoming busier and busier I'm finding it hard to find any spare time. Luckily the kiddies are back at school so that's one thing back to normal. As for work and the home reno's that's another thing....lol. I have started my Chrissy presents for the kids teachers, (they are all getting the same thing). This is for the Twins teacher who loves the colour blue. I have used Dulux "Joy Flight" to paint the box and covered it with Bella Ever After Scrapbooking paper. The "k" and the blue rhinestones are by Kaisercraft. The scalloped circle are done using my Cuttlebug and the butterflies are made using a EK Success punch. The only thing left to do is to fill it with some lollies.... yum! Lets hope she likes it.
Since my last post I had a birthday and my wonderful family bought me some Promarkers and a cute Snowman stamp (thanks Little Claires for sending them to me) so I'm off to play.
Take care and lets hope I find some more time to craft
Bye for now
