I made and posted this gift box back in September. I also needed a card to accompany it and here it is. It will make a great valentine's set don't you think? I actually bought hubby a gift that I thought was a tiny decorative tea kettle - hence the tea related theme. My mate then told me that what I had actually bought wasn't a tea kettle at all but a wine pot! Oh well - hubby generally prefers wine over tea.
I cut my card shape with my Cricut, added some Laura Ashley DP to match the teapot "china" pattern and some pretty Prima flowers to tie in with the rose motif on the tea pot gift box. My Teddybobea_tags_002 is part of a threesome and can be found here. I coloured it with Promarkers and Copics and there is a Stampin Up sentiment and border stamp punched out with an SU punch on the back.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Teddy Bo 24 "anything goes" - THEY'VE GOT BIRTHDAY CANDY - see my sidebar!
Crafty Creations 153 "Valentine"
Cupcake 176 "all you need is love"
Creative card crew 2 "seeing red" (I hope there is enough red to meet this challenge)
I sliced the side off my finger yesterday and nealy fainted away from the pain. Hubby rescued me where I was slumped on the bathroom floor with my arm up still tryng to bleed only into the sink! I wasn't even crafting at the time. I was cutting temporary business cards and my finger was hanging over the edge of my ruler when I went through it with the new blade on my craft knife. I found the cut off part on my top when I was lying on the bed recovering from my faint! "Ewwww" I hear you all shout; too much information! Anyway, having finally caught up with my blogging I'm now finding it very hard to type. I'm a touch typist. My fingers know where the letters are on the keypad but my eyes actually don't and at least six of my letters have been rubbed off the keys so I'm struggling to work out whats what without being able to use my fingers in the proper position!
