Another Award

Received another award, this time from Gail, thank you so much.

It looks like most of the blogs I visit have already received this award so please forgive me if I am passing it on to someone who has it.

I would like to forward this award to:

Birthday Card for my Daughter

Made this card for my Daughter's birthday tomorrow, I feel safe posting on here as I am sure she will not be looking on my blog until after she has opened her card.
The Sarah Kay image was coloured using my watercolour pencils and mounted on to 2 contrasting colour scalloped rectangles. The backing paper is from Funky Hands CD, flowers, brads and ribbon were from my stash.

A Lovely Award

I recieved this lovely award from 2 wonderful blogger friends. Thank you so very much to Chrissie from Chrissie's Place and Rosietoes from Edna's Place. This award is really appreciated especially coming from ladies who really inspire me.
This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind blogger’s aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight blogger’s who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
So I am going to pass this award onto the following friends:

Advent Train for my Grand Daughter Jessica

Have managed to finish this Advent Train for Jessica, just in time to fill it and pass it on to her ready for 1st December.
The train was cut with my KNK using a file by Linda (Shopmo) which I purchased from Thyme Graphics site.
Cut it all in white linen card ( it takes a lot!!) , the pink is the same card run through the printer before cutting. The silver is mirri card and was a pig to glue, I have learnt my lesson with that and will not be using it again if I can help it for intricate bits.
Other than the mirri card it was fun to make and I hope Jessica gets as much fun out of opening the little draws every day.

40th Birthday Exploding Box

Another exploding box for an order. Something more modern was called for, so decided to use Pink Petticoat papers and images. The box it'self with it's gorgeous cut out swirls was given me by my friend Debbie who has a great website that should be of interest to everyone especially those with cutting machines like KNK or Craft Robo. She has some fab things on her site for download and is well worth a visit. Click here to visit Debbies site.
The box was cut out of white linen card and all PP backing papers were printed onto pink Stardream paper., as was the tiny handbag in the centre. The PP images were coloured using mainly Sakura pens. The flowers were cut on my KNK out of the same pink Stardream and the leaves from some silver paper I had in my stash. Flowers and leaves were embossed to give them shape, attached and then decorated with gems and ribbon from my stash. The icing on the cupcakes and other cakes was done with Diamond Stickles. The sentiment was cut on my KNK using the same pink and silver paper.
