Chocolate Box

Happy Tuesday Stampers,


Hope your week is not too busy and you have time for some stamping. My week has been super busy, but I have a couple of things to show you later in the week.

Also, I am bursting at the seams, I just found out something amazing, but I can't share it at the moment, it is killing me holding it in, but hopefully soon I can share it with you, stay tuned.

This fits the Challenge at Just Magnolia - Easter Basket/Container
  my 1st entry was an Easter Basket (see previous post) made with the help of Lena Katrine - amazing Tutorial but for my 2nd entry - this still fits as an Easter Container.

Also my first entry over on the Double Dutch Challenge Blog this week their Challenge is - Be my Valentine - anything for Valentine related, can be a card, box or other project
 
Another first entry over on Pile it On  Challenge Blog - Challenge 5 - To the One you Love - is all about the person or pet that we love

If you are looking for inspiration, visit Just Magnolia's talented DT's, their creations are amazing, Thanks Ladies

You all know how much I love flowers, well I thought this paper mache box would be perfect for a gift for friends birthday filled with some goodies.


The sweet image is Magnolia's Wrapped Tilda from the So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Christmas Collection, but she is perfect for so many occasions. My Fellow DT Tracey from MDUC stampped this sweet image for me before Christmas, but I ran out of time to ink her up. Thanks so much Trace, I love her. I've coloured her with Copics, BG & MME papers, MS border punch, flowers, silk ribbon & braid from my ever growing stash.

Don't forget Kellie at Magnolia Down Under has some of the Yummy for you Tummy stamps now in stock and is taking pre-orders for the new Raising the Ceiling Collection due in very soon.  The store stocks a big range of other goodies, distress inks, beautiful lace, Magnolia Papers & lots more.

Have a great week.
