Chocolate Boxes Gets a Make Over

Hi and good morning my post is scheduled so fingers crossed it work. I will be travelling off to Wales so please prey for some nice weather Caravan and rain doesnt mix.
Well today means another challenge at CRAFTY CATZ and this week it is one of our extremely talented and beautiful GDT the lovely INGRID. If you havent visited her blog yet omg your missing out. what that girl can do with baby wipes and bits and bobs. So what has she for us this week.
yes dont run for the hills as i nearly did. Have a peep around and see what you can do to change something. Dont forget ribbons off boxes. buttons off old clothing and jars about to go in the bin.
Need more inspiration checkout the teams creations.
Our sponsor for this week is 
Fred She Said with a fab voucher for our winner
so what have I recycled.
A box of yummy chocolates I got for christmas. i knew I kept it for a reason.
It is a nice good strong box and thought I could put some flowers in when I get round to making them.
So what did I do with it.
Coat of Burnt Umber paint followed by gold fine spray and time to decorate.
grab a cuppa wasnt sure which picture was best so you get all three

I have used dies from Memory Box, Sue Wilson leaves and classic rose (omg I had to cut each out on its own to get a clean cut ) & Spellbinders . Chain, gems and my love knot punch for the sides.
Took me ages to make the flowers and hope you like it.
Well as I said this scheduled so see you soon. 
Leave me a comment if you have time would love to hear what you think

Good morning I am here with a GDT spot for Little Miss Muffet I was so thrilled to be asked to guest for them. I was equally thrilled that I was allowed to go and pick a image from their store omg have you had a look there is some amazing images/stamps. Kid in a candy shop came to mind.
Well today is  the start of a new challenge there was some fabulous baby creations last time. i do hope you can come and join us and show the team some love they are so talented.
Well the challenge for the next 2 weeks is your fave and mine
So what did I pick to show you
if you dont like no facial features you can buy them to add

I have coloured this sweetie with my promarkers and the little tag is a stamp I found in my stash. Kept the layout simple to show off this fabulous image. Die is a spellbinder that the image is sat on. DP is from a pad called fairytale from last year some lovely delicate seam binding from crafty ribbons and a few pearls to finish off. i added a little 3d gloss on the puppys nose not sure if it shows up.
I would like to thank the girls for allowing me to join them this challenge. Hope that you will come and join us and please checkout the rules they have recently changed slightly.

It is Everyones Favouite at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS

Good morning gosh that wind we had yesterday least it didnt do any damage and it brought us some nice sunshine too. 
Well today being Tuesday means that we have a new challenge for you at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS and this week it is everyones favouite
so no excuse not to come and join us.
We have a fab prize for you this week and wish i could enter as it is a stamp I dont have

So let me show you my card I made for your inspiration. It is a stamp I had seen in the shop and have been iching to get my hands on it. It is called LETS SWIM and you can find it here
I think I will be able to use it a good few times as Swim Birthday Parties are a big thing in my area.

This is a large 8x8 inch card as the stamp is quite a large one and I wanted to show it off to full effect so didnt want to clutter the card. A simple layout with Sue Wilson dies and a fern punch, some buttons a touch of glitter card to mount the image which was cut with a Xcut die. Chipboard letters and a few blue gems. Image has been coloured with my promarkers.
Hope you like my card i am sure you will agree he is a real cutie making friends with the fish.
Head on over and checkout the rest of the team for some more inspiration showing how you can use our stamps. Remember you dont have to use a Crafty Sentiments stamp but if you do put #3 behind your name and you will be entered 3 times in the random draw.
Thanks for popping by.
