Mother's Day - Gift Box xx

Well I have put the finishing touch to my box that I did whilst crafting with my niece Kerry so I thought I'd show it as I know she has blogged hers today here. Mine is for Mother's Day and Kerry did Easter.

I really enjoyed the night as its the first time in weeks that I've crafted with her as I haven't been able to go to my weekly craft night so I had a fix!!!

This is a little gift box with a concealed top where I have used my Mini King Tilda which as always is coloured with my pro markers.

And this is it in place within the lid isn't it just beautiful so glad she went to a class at The Craft Box with the Hougie Board last weekend cause now she can teach me how to make the yummy box's that she showed me.

Its also the first time this little beauty has been inked isn't she just so cute.

Flowers are from my stash and these beautiful mini bows I did do a banner for Mothers Day but it just looked silly so I have left off.

Well as you can see my pictures are rubbish again roll on better weather or the day light which ever comes first!!! lol

I am entering the following challenges.

Allsorts - Say it with flowers
2 Sisters - Spring
Crafty Catz Challenge - Mothers day or special lady (This is for my Mother)
Oldie but Goldie - Mums the word
Polly Crafts - Spring has come
Gingerloft - Spring
Craft Your days away - Mothers Day

Well that's it for today I off to do a bit of commenting before my little Angel arrives who by the way is getting into the naughty (Two Year old) stage a little bit early as her birthday isn't until April!! lol

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love & Hugs Chanelle xxxxx
