Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Toy boxes.

First of all let me say these boxes were not my idea. I was stalking the gallery at SCS and spotted the idea here. I wasn't likely to pass off the chance to make a box or two was i? So here's my version.
The piece of card measures 11"x 41/2" and is scored at 21/2", 5", 71/2" and 10" then turn and score at 11/2" for the bottom flaps.Not much stamping and colouring required as the toy is the star of the show.
The little toys were only £1 each from Tesco but they aren't suitable for tots. They have a clip attatched so i think they are to clip onto bags etc.
I'm off to do a token amount of housework to keep the guilt monster away then i can play again later.
               See you soon.  Di.xx
