Yesterday was Leonard's birthday and he loved the box!!! I put a tie with a matching hankie in it and he loved that too! We were suppose to go out for dinner but ended up ordering out because the weather here is pretty nasty. We had a comfy and delicious meal, finally watched some movies we were given but hadn't yet had time for, and just had a very pleasant and relaxing time together.
Okay, I've spent waaaay too much time fiddling with that darn ecraft machine! I think I may like it if I can ever get the pressure right so as not to rip my paper. I've gotten some really good cuts and some really bad ones; however, to keep from getting frustrated, I -- off and on -- worked on this little project. I used one of the new Marianne Design Anja dies I received for Christmas to do this box and card project. I really didn't have a design in mind when I started (still trying to get my mojo back), but this came together really quick and was so much fun:
Oops, didn't realize adding that frame would make it more difficult to see the project, huh? Here's the picture itself; hope this is better:
I used lots of bling around the edges, pearl paint, and silk flowers on it; I rubbed the embossed die roses inset with silver-grey Lustre Rub-on and bit of silver Stickles. I can't wait to play with this die again! And because it's a wedding box and card, I'm going to enter it into the http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com wedding themed challenge I noticed while visiting with my friend Rhonda at Scrap Happens.
Before I leave you, during our belated family holiday celebration, Buster got a Christmas hat and collar as a present (yes, he gets presents too and lots of em...lol); anyway, being the little show-off that he is he wanted me to post a picture of him wearing them for you...lol:
Well, I'm off to playing again -- got more stuff to explore!
Hugs, love ya, and I'll be seeing you!
