2 Cute Freebie and Challenge

Well, I said I was going to enter the challenge....just didnt know I would get it done this quickly!  You know, when you sit there and look and look and can't decide what to do....then all of  sudden it just comes together!

SO....the challenge at 2 Cute Rubber Stamps was to use their freebie to make something...love challenges like this lolx

Its a sweetie box!  And a card to go with it of course.

Close up of the box - this fabby paper was a freebie, absolutely ages ago, from a magazine.  The box is one of my Graze boxes given a makeover.  These are great for keeping kiddie sweeties in (mind you, I normally eat them first!)

Such a shame - you cant see the glitter!  All of the white icing is glittered, the heart is glazed with sakura pen.  Oh and liquid pearls around the edge.  Maybe if you click on the photos you will see the glitter...can you tell, I like the glitter!  Its all sparkly and shiny!

And onto the card.  I used little pink bugle beads and more glitter on the icing for this one.  I then covered the whole lot with glossy accents.

.....well, you can ALMOST see the beads at least!

Hey ho!  You just have to take my word for it - they are all glittery and pretty!


Thanks for taking the time to look


Edited: Have just checked...if you click on the pic and tilt your laptop screen/monitor then you can see the glitter...or maybe crouch down and peep up!!!

Edited AGAIN!!!  Lisa left me a lovely comment and suggested I enter this into Moving Along with the Times whose theme this week is Glitter - yep - got that one alright!  Thanks Lisa!

Lovely items - had to laugh at the edit...can't quite see me crouching down wedged between the desk/filing cabinet and waste bin in order to look up at the monitor LOL - if you haven't guessed, I don't have a laptop...still, it could be a giggle trying.

Toni :o)

These look fab and you can see the glitter, good job too as I didn't fancy tilting and lifting my monitor . Love the backing papers, great for someone with a sweet tooth.

these are absolutley lush Ruthie, I love the paper and the images too. I still haven't got round to ordering myself a graze box yet, must pull my finger out and order one at some point.

Also - postie has just been and delivered me the most fabulous package of goodies - OMG!!! I'm blown away, thank you so so much. I don't have any of those colours and I love ALL the extras you popped in too. I can't stop smiling, you've absolutely made my day.
