Birthday gift card box.

Yesterday afternoon I was on a roll. Not only did I make the Monster Card, but I also had a go at making a box. I used the Top note die box idea that I'd seen flying around the net and teamed it with a little box to stick in between. Instead of using it as a gift box, I decided that I would use it as a gift card box. So made 8 little birthday gift cards that matched the outside of the box. 

I think it's soo cute, and would make a wonderful birthday present for a little girl. I am working on a boys version today. So come back and check out what I come up with.

Make a Monster - Happy Birthday Card.

This afternoon I finally got around to making a card. I spent most of Thursday/Friday rearranging furniture in my house so that I was able to craft in my loungeroom again, I just find it so much more comfortable. And so now that it's all finished, I was able to create. 

This is the card that I came up with. Using Peach Parfait, Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz card stock and inks, and the Make a monster and Bring on the cake stamp sets. 

I won't say it's one of my favourite cards, but I am happy enough to send it out to someone. :D 

I am back.

yes you read that right. 

For those of you who I don't have on my Facebook or who haven't heard. My beautiful little boy James, passed away last year of Cancer, in October, and that is why I haven't been posting/crafting for a while. My head and my heart just haven't been in it, but I would really like to try and get back into something, and try and push through these deep dark days.

I am going to try and post at least once a week. A couple of my close friends have been on my back about getting my blog off the ground again, and so here I am. It may not always be cards that I post, but I'm sure I'll find something "Crafty" to post about!! Hope you all enjoy my future posts.
