Triple Happiness!!

Good evening everyone, hope you are all well and not too cold .... its freezing isnt it!!  Had a really unusual request for a card for triplets.......at first I thought of it as a bit of a daunting task but the fabulous Mo's Digital images came to my rescue!!   This one is Diaper Crew, there are 6 fab images to choose from and a doddle to colour!

Papers are Nitwits - Grins N Giggles.
Sentiment done on PC
Ribbon and dummies from stash

I forgot to take a photo of the inside but the verse is:

Three to cuddle, three to hold,
three to treasure, good as gold.
Three to watch, what a game,
now what's different, what's the same.
Three in nappies, three in bibs,
three in sleepers, tucked in cribs.
Three to lullaby, not one peep,
three now hush, fall fast asleep.
Congratulations on your triple happiness!

A quickie post as I am just dashing off to my Tuesday evening craft group.... enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for looking!

Exploding Box

Hi everyone!!!  I am back...... I know I have neglected my blog for ages now...... feel really guilty about it but the last few weeks have been really busy with one thing and another...... Christmas, New Year, illness and life in general.... so much going on in our lives at the moment and my mojo doing a disappearing act didnt help.... but hopefully I am back on track now!! 

This exploding box I made for my granddaughter Bethany's 18th birthday earlier this month..... didnt realise until I gave it to her though that I had made a boo-boo with her year of birth..... should have been 1994 and not 93 ..... duh!!  Still, I have rectified it since then ...... it had to be right as hopefully it will be a keepsake for a long time to come.  I love making exploding boxes..... its such a delight to see the recipients face when they open it!  I followed a fab tutorial here http://sazzlecraft.blogspot.com/search/label/Exploding%20Box for the dimensions of the box and the cake........ then I had great fun decorating it ..... the cake was a bit fiddly but worth doing ..........I wanted to make it as girly as possible.......Beth was thrilled with it which made it all worthwhile.

The gorgeous paper is Tilda Papercraft 'Classic'
Flowers are all from Wild Orchid
Sassy stamp is Whimsy Filmstrip Sentiments

Thats it from me today.... a short and sweet post ....... enjoy the rest of your day.... hope your weather if better than we have in Cheshire at the moment, its been a real mixed bag today, rain, sunshine, wind and hailstones!!
