Little Box

This is the little project I have been working on.

It is a little box holding 5 little 3x3 cards. The card and papers are all Stampin' Up!, but the stamped iris flowers are from Hero Arts. I came accross these stamps while having a tidy up. I have no idea how old they are, and had never used them!! I do this so much. Buy things, then don't get around to use them!!
The box insperation came from
I used Certainly Celery and Lovely Lilac card, decorated with Certainly Celery Designer papers. The Iris flowers where water coloured using Lavender Lace, Almost Amethyst, Mellow Moss & Certainly Celery ink. The Ribbon is SU 5/8" Grosgrain in Certainly Celery.

The little cards are made with the Stampin' Up! Love Notes. More coloured Iris's layered on Lovely Lilac & Certainly Celery.
This stamp comes in a set of 4. The other three images would also work well on a little box like this. I might just have to make another 3 boxes :-)

Been a long time....

Sorry I havn't blogged for such a long time. Life has got in the way a little. I thought that now I had finished work, I would have so much more time to craft. Well got that wrong didn't I.......... I won't bore you with all the details :-). Instead I am going to share some photos from our few days away last week. Hubby and I went with friends to Ronda in Spain. We had a great time, it is such a beautiful area.
Below is a photo of the gorge in Ronda its self.
This is inside the Bull Ring...........which was just opposite our hotel.

And this is just an example of the beautiful scenes we had while driving around

I have a craft project to show you, but I must go and get DS from school, so I will try and post later on this evening.
