Sue's 50th Birthday

So who would have thought my third post in a week, go We are off to a 50th birthday party tonight and decided to do Sue a chocolate box with a matching card. The card was made using the left over card stock from the chocolate box. Not to exciting but it matches the box.
And this is my Dusty Attic chocolate box. I have used black bazzill cardstock and a Doodlebug patterned paper purchased at The Craft Stand in Malaga, I have coloured some of the leaves with a promarkers to add a little colour. Sue's fav colours are black, white and navy blue. Thank goodness because it made my job easy. The roses I have done myself using the Tim Holtz alterations die cut, and added some little pearls inside coloured with my promarkers so they matched. Rhinestones by Kaisercraft and the writing, although you can't see it, has been given a shimmer using my version of smooch spritz, and then covered with some Glossy Accents.
Filled it with some chocolates, and yep I ate the ones that wouldn't fit......tutt tutt.

another challenge

Hi Peeps, Well here I am again, This is another entry for a paper pack challenge. This one is for Tomorrows Memories in Bassendean. This pack was so much fun, I really loved doing this one, and I have decided that I'm going to frame it and give it to my Mum for her birthday. The photo is of my Mum with her Mum and Dad (she gave me the photo to put onto disc, so she has no idea that I have used it). I'm so so pleased at this bouque, it took a while to get it to sit the way I wanted it to but I eventually won.
The doyle was tea dyed, after my dog stole it from the kitchen bench and had a nice chew!!!!!!! The swirl was promarkered and smooched spritzed and then I added some glossy accents to give it a shiny look. The butterflies below were coloured the same way. The button was originally clear but didn't blend so I promarkered that as well.
Thanks again for stopping by, have a super duper day

It's been a while

Howdy peeps, Once again long time no blog for me, but have decided that I should sit and update my blog and have a little blog hop, while kiddies at school and hubby catching up on some sleep after coming off the night swing. This is the challenge pack over at The Craft Stand in Malaga. I have used my C.C. Design stamps with the theme of cupcakes, they all have a shimmer added to them using my Smooch Spritz and of course they all have been coloured with Promarkers. Flowers by Kaisercraft and all extra papers are from my stash, bout time I tried to use some up.
This is a swing card I made. I got the idea from a magazine. Unfortunately there were no measurements and it took me a while to work it out but I got there in the end and I think the finish card looks great.
Such a great pack I had so much fun using it.
OK so my update is done now a bog hop. Thanks for popping by see you all soon
Well the blog hop didn't go so well has anyone else had problems leaving comments?
