Well folks I don't know what your weather is like but oh boy here it's miserable, pouring with rain and very windy!!! The type of day that you really just want to stay in. Charlie and went out to get bits and we had lunch out, nothing posh just a bowl of soup for myself and Charlie had a toastie but it just got us out.
Thank you for all your lovely comment about my Birthday card, I will be making more, my fault is that I want to spend loads of time playing with bits to see what I can do and to be honest at the moment I can 't spare that time, have made up three gifts today should have been six but I have got side tracked and then we were out as I said, but there is tomorrow.
I was asked if it was possible for me to make bigger Oramgi boxes than the ones I have made from 12x12 card, so put the old brain to work and did these.
I have put one made from 12x12 next to one to show the difference in size, the big one is made from a 171/2x171/2 or 46x46 cms piece of card, the base of the box is 18 cm across. Now these are for gifts to hand in to family's instead of just a box of Roses or the likes also one is for a school staff room it's filled with 50 Mixed Lindt balls. I kept them not to fussy. They were loved by the lady who ordered them. It goes to show what you can do with the basic design.
Well I suppose I'd better go and see if I can get another couple of these gifts made up. I haven't started doing any parcel wrapping for myself yet, or for the ones for Anna and Beth's teaching staff.
Yes I do those to. Girls have given me ideas what they would like and mummy pays for them, good job I don't mind, we were going to give boxes that the girls made but seeing how all the children made them at school we put that idea to one side.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
