Happy Valentines.......

I made my first exploding box today. It's for a lovely young guy at work to give to his girlfriend on Valentines Day. It's filled with hand-made chocolates too.
I used cream coloured card to make the box then decorated it with scraps of paper and card. To finish it off I used some Tim Holtz paper which I embossed through my Cuttlebug then sanded it down to highlight the lettering.

It's a Winter Wonderland Outside!

The snow is falling all over Britain right now, it looks so pretty outside. Best place to be is nice and warm at home crafting and that's exactly what I'm doing right now..........with a glass of red wine to help my creative thoughts!
Speaking of Winter Wonderland, the challenge this week over at Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog is Blue and White, perfect for this weather with all the snow and frost about.
I'm entering this card that I've made for a special little girl, into the challenge this week.
They also have a great prize sponsored by Crafter's Companion for the winner, pop over and take a look at the fabulous cards made by the DT.

Found a bit of time to craft.....

Got home from work early today, that's one good thing when I'm working in London, I have a bit of time to myself in the evenings. I used my time today to make some more Christmas cards and my February Fat Page - Love, for Cazro's swap.
I used "O Joy" from Stampotique for my Christmas cards and for my Fat Page, I used the freebie stamp from Craft Stamper (February issue) and two stamps from an Andy Skinner set.
I must start joining in more challenges this year, I need something to push me more on my blog.
