Wine & Chocolates!!!

Even though I've not been at work much this week due to this cold virus I've got (yesterday I sounded like Pinky & Perky on helium and today I sound like one of the Rugrats - its anyones guess what I'll sound like tomorrow!!) I still haven't been that craft productive. Since given up smoking 2 months ago I've never been so unhealthy - picked up bug after bug!

This is the wine bottle I decorated a week ago for a wedding present. Same kind of design really that I've done recently except no inking or distressing on this bottle - felt it would have spoilt it so left that out.

This is the front of the bottle...

and this is the back..

Well onto a wee box of chocolates!! I made this box out of a piece of Stucco card, 2 small pieces of cardboard, a piece of 12x12 scrapbook paper, ribbon and flowers (made the little bouquet mystelf which I sprayed with glimmer mist) and a Crafty Individual stamp 'Dream A Little Dream'. I did intend to make a few of these boxes and fill them with Ferro Roches but unfortunately I've ate most of them so only enough for 2 boxes :O) - well I have been poorly you know!!!

Here's the box from above..

from the side...

and the box slightly open...

Was out and about today shopping for bits and bobs and managed to catch up with a few friends who I haven't seen for a while which was nice. Working on a Gorjuss card now for a card challenge so hopefully will get it finished before the closing date. TTFN xx


  1. That box is GORJUSS too. Hope you feel better. I must have come out in sympathy with you as I have had a couple of 'off days'.
