Well I have just finished making the box and the last card for the set.

I am really happy with the way it turned out as I have never made a box in this style before. It took me a bit of working out but I finally got there in the end.

I wasnt asked to do this for anyone it was more of a challenge for myself. I have never made a card set before let alone a box like this. So I can say I am pleased as punch!

The box was made using the same card as the paler brown cards, I used Kelly Panacci paper to cover the front so it matches and I also attached ribbon on the back so that it can be tied at the front.


Well I seem to be doing fine so far, but the patches are not staying on. I am having to use plasters to keep the damn things on my arm.

Don't get me wrong - I still want a ciggy - especially after I have something to eat or have a brew. Its more a habit thing. In the morning instead of coming downstairs and having a brew and a ciggy I stay upstairs and make sure the kids are washed and dressed, make the beds then come down.

Yesterday I went out instead of staying in and spent 3 hours just wondering around and I have to say I bought some Christmas Presents (yes I know its only September). So I kept myself busy and spent a little bit of money (which always makes me happy).

And for the rest of the day seeing that the kids are at school and its only 10.50am I might, just might finish making the Chocolate & Pink card and hopefully a folder to put them in.


My first Cuttlebug card. I know its not the best card in the world but when I got down to making it, my mind went a complete blank. I have a great new TOY to play with and zippo went my mojo.
I used a silver gel pen to highlight the snowman and also the word Frosty and used 3d foam pads to raise them a little from the card.

I used my Cuttlebug, Snowflakes embossing folder, Sledding embossing folder and the Winter Jelly embossing folder, and the card is White Pearl from LCS.


Well thats what hubby said the brown and pink one reminded him of. And I think the pale brown and green reminds me of Chocolate Limes. Yummy!

I was sat the other night with my dining room table covered in stuff trying to think of a set of cards to make and came up with these. I still have another chocolate and pink one to do and then I have a set. Then hopefully I will be able to make a holder for them to sit in.

I decoupaged the paper and raised it using 3d foam pads and the tags where printed on the computer and cut out.

Papers are by Kelly Panacci, Brown Card and Ribbons - LCS
