Charisma Cardz DT - Try something new/different

Morning my sweet stamping friends!
WOW! Post number 2 for the day! Haven't done that in ages. Why are there never enough hours in a day?? I ask myself this question daily lol! Just can't believe how the time flies. It's already almost another week over and today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Charisma Cardz. This week the theme has been chosen by our design team and we would like to see you try something new or something different to what you normally do. I decided to make a little gift box and mounted my card on top of it. I got the template off a very talented lady's blog and for the life of me I can't seem to find where I put the link grrrrr! Once I do find it, I'll let you all know as I thoroughly enjoyed doing this project and inking up one of my favourite neglected stamps, Tilda. Ooooo, I do miss my Magnolias. Need to find more time as they're being horribly neglected at the moment lol! Can't remember what papers these are either, WOW, I'm totally useless today! They are from my scrap box so sadly no name on it hehe. I used co-ordinations cardstock and embossed it with script thru the cuttlebug. The ribbons and glitter gems are from my stash and the blooms are from wild orchid crafts.Thanks for stopping by and please do check out the blog for some fabby inspiration from the rest of the dt. Go on, I know your dying to try something new too so why not join in with us and stand the chance of winning some fabby prizes. Until tomorrow, lotsa luv xxxx


  1. I think I am going to report you for dare you forget about them? Shame on YOU!! LOL
    My favourite Tilda - she looks well cute. I have been playing too this morning, and yes your right ~ the time just flies by. I am not dressed, not turned on the hoover and got to shower yet. My eldest Daughter is having her first filling today at the dentist.....and wants Mummy to hold her hand....bearing in mind she is almost 22yrs. I made one of these box-cards last year for Christmas pressies. I bought aload of match boxes to do mine. The matches I donated to a friend who's Grand-Dad makes models with them. . . .Think I may have to do one again . . . but do have a chest to alter first. So many things to do and so little time!!
