Noir et Chic!

Good Morning to Everyone, I hope you are all well, but here are hugs and kind thoughts to those of you who are not feeling just so well, and get better soon.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my pop up box card, yes it was really my first, good job the photograph covers up the mistakes, but I appreciate the comments, give me encouragement.  I have made another which I will post at a future date, it looks quite good too.

Well, it's the start of another weekend, where does the time fly off to.  I'm off to work in a wee while, but I've had a couple of nice days off.  Yesterday I met up with two crafty friends for a catch up and a coffee, and as Fiona brings her little one, who is a real live wire she fairly kept us entertained, at that age where she is into everything.  It was nice to meet up with Marlene too.

This is quite a short post today, so here is my offering for you:

An origami box, made to put Karen's gift into.
Made from Noir et Chic from Limited Edition, love this paper
SB Aster and Rose Creations Dies
MB Fabulous Phlox Die
Sizzix Foliage Die and Butterfly dies
Lace and pearl hearts from Hobby Craft
Hobby House Pearls
Papermania Gems
Glamour Dust in Crystal

Off now for a wild day at work, it's a wet dreich day, but the thing I'm looking forward to is Alistair is taking me out for a meal tonight, that will keep me going all day.
Bye all, and have a super weekend

Love your box Kate.....I made one of these earlier in the year at the Papermaze monthly crop I go to. One of the ladies kindly ran a make and take and showed us how to make them.....very clever idea.
