A gift box with blooms

Here is another project for the classes this week, I don't  think we will manage to get it all finished in one lesson, it took me four hours! and there are still two more types of flower to add, there is a box underneath and the flowers are on the lid, this card is ideal if you want to give someone a really special gift, the box is about 2" x 2" so is perfect for earrings, bracelet, necklace etc. The paper I used was all shimmer paper, moonbeam was one and gold another, it hasn't photographed very well, it is a lot more delicate IRL.  We will finish it next week and add the other flowers, the trick is to get them in a position that you can still lift off the lid without damaging the flowers, hope you enjoy!!!

On a footnote, my hubby was fine after his tests, but they found a bacteria in his stomach which had given him an ulcer ( see I wasn't to blame after all ha ha) but I did say "well maybe they really didn't wash the tube!!!" ???????? Last night he went for a sleep study for sleep apnoea, neither of us slept very well, it was soooo quiet in our room without his snoring!! and he had too many wires attached for a comfy night, I suppose I complain too much about the noise but I won't again, as I can't sleep without it, after nearly forty years together it's no wonder really is it?

Off the page

I am going to a friends baby shower on Sunday and the invitation asked for no presents but for information that we could share with the new Mum to let her know we were thinking about her and her new baby, this is what I came up with after a lot of deep thinking LOL, it was supposed to be a letter or some advice but I thought if it's something worth doing it is worth crafting!!

 The card for next weeks lesson is a pretty flower that looks like an open rose, here I have displayed it as a candle holder, but we will be putting it on a card.  I hope you will enjoy it!!

I have been able to spend a little time crafting this morning as hubby is in day surgery for a colonoscopy and gastroscopy..........I left him with the message to tell the nurses to make sure that they washed the tube between procedures!!!..............ha ha

For next weeks lesson we are doing Daffodils,  even now in our hot hot hot summer, they make me feel like spring.   I have two types you can choose from, the mini one is one that is in the FPC book, it always seems a little small to me, the other is using same method but a different punch.  I am not sure yet what day we will be meeting, it depends on the lady on holiday but as soon as I have contacted her I will let you know...........happy crafting!!

Well another more difficult card this week, shouldn't say difficult, what I mean is time consuming! there is a lot of cutting with this one, it is one of my all time favourite flowers to make.  I do hope you like it too, now don't forget we have changed the time for the class, it is now Tuesday at 1pm for this week at least, then we will decide which is best
