Tonight Ladies & Gentlemen you have before you a very rare item. Never before created by my good self, have you seen such a fascinating, interesting, beautifully crafted card box. Yes, you non-believers, I have the power - if not the inclination - to make a darn card box. You may never see this again dear friends. Enjoy while you can. I did try fruitlessly, to ram the wedding card into a square envelope but things started to drop off the card - so a box was made. If truth be known, the card rattles around inside - the box being a little too large but No Matter. I have made a box on 1st August 2011. Make a note in your diary. I shall expect 'You made a box' anniversary cards next year and the year after.
I have stamped this creation, with a Clarity corner stamp, made the central wording on my computer, then used my Spellbinder cutter and Nestabilites to make the centrepiece. I have coloured in the stamped images using felt tipped pens - not for me Pro markers, Copic pens and the like - the Yorkshire in me is still using up my felt tipped Marvy Le Plumes. (By the way - did you know it's Yorkshire day today?) I have been liberal with my pearls, I think you'll agree.
I just have to get this to Plymouth safely, via Bristol. I'm off for a lie down now.
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
