Thursday's class card and box project

Gosh I can't believe how fast this week has flown by.......Hannah has been away with her friend and family this week, so Paul and I have been enjoying some quite time, or rather I have as Paul is so busy with work and not coming home until about 9pm and I am still in bed when he leaves in the morning!!!!

I had a lovely day on Monday with Kerry and Belle two fabulous ladies that I have meet through Stampin' Up, and met another friend on Tuesday for breakfast, and yesterday my friend Vicky came round and we opened my pre-order together and had some fun oohing and ahhhing over everything, and we only have another week before we can pre order again from the new 2012-2013 ideas book and catalogue I am so excited.

Being able to pre-order and have an early look at catalogue items is a wonderful perk of being a demonstrator, as well as being able to earn products for FREE, so if you would like to have the same privilege's contact me for a no obligation chat.

Last Thursday was my card and 3d project class and it was lovely to catch up with my ladies as I was unable to make the last class because I was ill.

We had two colour combinations to choose from, Marina Mist and very vanilla and Soft Suede  and Pink Pirouette.  Here is a photo of the soft suede combo.

The Box was a holder and then 2 milk carton box's fitted inside.  The DSP is from Beau Chateaux and the ribbon is the pretty in pink scallop dots ribbon and some very vanilla taffeta ribbon.  Tiny clips hold the milk carton closed, which could be filled with sweets.


The card uses the Reason to Smile stamp set which is available until the end of August, more details can be found on this on the right hand bar of my blog.

The pink thread was originally white and we coloured it using the ink pad and a dauber.  I hope you like this gift and card project.  I will show you the other colour combo tomorrow.

Later on today I have my hospital appointment with the shoulder consultant, as I am still having pain and pins and needles, but thankfully my blood test results for any serious condition came back negative earlier this week, so we will see what the options are later regarding an operation or pain management strategy.
