Bank Holiday

Hello there and a huge warm welcome to my little blog. It's been a bank holiday today here in the UK. A wonderful 3 day weekend. We have got loads done this weekend and been out for lovely walks, meals and all the chores done which left me some time for a couple of hours crafting each afternoon. I will share what I made with you in the week. 
Today though it's a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme was anything goes YAY ! So I made a special card for a very special lady. She is the owner of the craft shop I go to. Her name is Sue and there are no words to describe just how much she does for us all at craft club and her local community. Oh and it's the lady who organises the fantastic craft retreats we go to each year.... I started with a plain black box that my friend Maria gave me.

I decided to use one of the newer collections from Graphic 45 called Vintage Hollywood. I made my own card blank to for the box and decorated the top of the box.


Really loved making this. I highlighted the lady and flowers with wink of Stella. 
Hope you like it.
Right that's all from me, please do hop over to see what my fellow teamies have made. 
Thanks for stopping by, take care.
