A box of Goodies....

Hi folks...well it looks like the weather man got it wrong once again...instead of the doom and gloom wet and windy weather predicted we've been enjoying wall to wall sunshine in my neck of the woods...why doesn't he do what I do...get out of bed and look out the window...that is usually a good indication of what the day holds in store weatherwise. The sunshine did play havoc just a little bit with the cubbyhole timetable but it's my turn to post over at the Craftwork Cards Blog today so nothing could distract me from my DT box of goodies...I was off to the cubbyhole for some crafty play with the Kraft Tag Pad...Mannequin Pad...Bows Paper Pad...Goodyboxes and my favourite collection at the moment...the gorgeous Tea Dance range of papers, die cut flowers and sentiments.

joining 2 tags together for a special friend card...

and I love the cute bows in the Bows Paper Pad...144 bows in total in all colours of the rainbow...matching beautifully with the papers from the Goody Boxes...
8 of the tags in the Kraft Tag Pad have a foiled finish which I grunged up a little bit with some Distress Paints...a quick swipe of Picket Fence and Spun Sugar for a shabby chic look...colouring in parts of the lettering with an Inkssentials White Opague Pen made them stand out again and the flowers came from a happy little accident...I tore one bow in my rush to detach it from the pad...waste not want not and too precious to end up in the bin...voila a cute little tulip like flower.

and not forgetting the boys...after all tomorrow is Father's Day...some CAS cards using the Polka Dot bows and papers from the Black Magic Goody Box...

and a girlie girlie one to finish...
Have a fun day whatever you're doing and I'll see you all tomorrow over at The Ribbon Girl Blog for the June Colour Challenge and I'll be re-drawing the winner of my Monday Monthly Ribbon Girl Give-Away.

I just knew you would do something magical with them Kath. They are fab! Wet and windy here I'm afraid - been chucking it down. Still, the good news is that I didn't have to do any watering on my allotment today! Stayed in and did some baking instead. X
