For a change it's not because there is only one day of work left, but because it's a Bank Holiday - a four day weekend awaits me, what a lovely thought!
Also, I have woken up to lovely blue skies and sunshine, so, even though it's still FREEZING, it's really nice to see things brightening up a bit.
I have decided that today I am going to have a proper day off......not start the housework early etc. I am going to enjoy a bit of crafting time (not least because I haven't finished my Easter cards yet....oops!!!)
So today I thought I would show you something that I made for Stamp Addicts using one of their lovely rabbit stamps.
I have to admit that this was not a 5 minute job as it all started out as plain, flat bits of card, but, with the help of my trusty boxer board and a bit of trial and error, I got there in the end, and I think that the effort was worth it.
Here's a picture of the box in the closed position. As you can see I have made panels using some of the Stamp Addicts background stamps and Red Brick Distress Ink.
As you can see I have coloured him with pro markers and surrounded him with plain punched flowers with coiled wire stems which I created by winding the wire around a pen. The difficult part was affixing the wire stems to the box and in the end I opted for making a raised base, poking the wire through and securing the wires with sticky tape. All this becomes invisible once you stick the base in place and this has the added advantage of making the whole box a bit more solid too.
