Decorated gift box & card






Hi, long time no see again sorry!!
I seem to be quite busy at the moment. However I did break off to decorate this box & make a card for my brother & his fiance for their engagement party last Saturday.

I have used:
The Box
Hide Away 12x12 papers (which I currently have for sale HERE cheap!!)
I distressed with my new ink pad thingys & autumn distress ink
The ribbon & flowers are Prima, the other bits are from my stash.
The sentiment stamped image was in my little blog candy from Dawn :0)

The Card
Hide Away 12x12 papers (which I currently have for sale HERE cheap!!)
Stampin Up image & sentiment
Promarkers to colour


Hope you like it, my brother & finace loved it & their little gift inside....some tea towels for when they get their own place together :0)

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
