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

Origami Boxes.

Hello peeps, what time is the rain going to start then? It's very dark and dismal here in Chester as usual on my day off. Still it might brighten up a bit later on.
Meanwhile here's the next stage of my mums chocolate mountain gifts.
These boxes are so easy to make. You can get the instructions at Splitcoast Stampers resources pages HERE. Always remember that your piece of paper for the bottom needs to be slightly smaller than the top.These were made with mums grandsons in mind as the paper (DCWV stack 6) is great for young lads. Believe it or not the design is actually diagonal before folding.

I did the little verse on the computer. A few masculine flowers and leaves and we're done. The chocolate mountain is now a bit smaller,lol.
Right, time to feed Speedy as he is trying to look malnourished. We are just having a bit of crumpet with cheese as we're eating out later.
Oh and guess what........... I've found some mini gingerbread men in Tesco, £1.49 for 30,  they were there all the time but they've moved them to the bottom shelf for some reason.

 Thanks for looking.   Di,xx
