Sympathy Cards.

Something I never like to make but unfortunately my Grandy passed away yesterday, hence the sad call to make some sympathy cards. He was a real character and lived a full and rich life. I`m just sorry I wasn`t there to say good-bye.

I reached straight for the Justrite stamp set ``Thinking of You``. The sayings seemed just right !
I am really pleased with the way they both turned out. I need to make one more and then hopefully thats it for a long time to come.
Thanks for looking.

Pumpkin Place cards & Treat Boxes !!

Can you believe it, two posts in two days - wonders will never cease ! I thought I would post these adorable little boxes. They are for our Thanksgiving dinner. There first task is to serve as a place card and secondly they are filled with four chocolates for alittle treat after dinner. Two for the price of one. You can`t get better !

I started off by making a matchbox using the SU die. Then cutting out two pumpkins from the Spellbinders Nesting Pumpkins. I added some DP from My Minds Eye to brighten them up alittle and then put them through the pumpkin embossing folder. The saying and pumpkin is one from the JustRite Demi Phrases and I have personalised it using the 15pt font which came with the 2" block. There is a small tag of ribbon attached by a gold brad on the end of the box to make it easier to open.From this photograph you can see the inside of the box with the chocolates. Four of the Hershey Toffee and Almond Nuggets fit in a treat. I covered them with matching DP.

My friend came round earlier today and we made ten for her Thanksgiving table. She was `chuffed`.

Hope you like them. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day.

Pumpkin Gift Box.

Happy Monday !

Long time no post, where has the time gone !! The feel of Autumn is definately here; a slight chill in the air, fabulous colours on the trees, I love it. We were in the garden yesterday chopping and trimming the trees, the sun was shining and the skies were blue; what more could you ask for?
Anyway onto the post. We were invited over for dinner to friends on Saturday so I thought I would make alittle gift to take with us. I got my nesting pumpkins out from Spellbinders and got to work.

I made a one sheet box and placed the pumpkins either side. I then used my Justrite on the sentiment, used the cuttlebug embossing folder of pumpkins after cutting them out to give alittle extra detail; then filled them with chocolate pumpkins..... yummy !!!
Thats about it, hope you like it.
I know its alittle early but HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
Thanks for looking have a great day.
