 A few weeks ago I was lucky to have been chosen as a GDT for 

Today is the day that my project is shown 
the theme for this week is 
I decided to make an easel card, gift box and gift, there are quite a few pictures to see I hope you don't mind
My first picture shows the three items together as a set, I have used pink linen cardstock for both card and box, I used my new digi image from La La Land called Marci in Beret, I coloured her with copics then cut her out.  The papers are Papermania and have been mounted onto gold satin mirri card, I added a ribbon 'cutie' banner, Viva Decor, sentiment and a couple of my crochet flowers with gems for their centres. 
the second picture shows the project plus the gift out of the box
3rd picture shows the easel card which is 4x4
4th picture shows the box, also 4x4, 
next picture shows the card and my crocheted flower 

the flower is a 4x4 Dahlia, I followed a You Tube tutorial made by , bobwilson123, she is an Australian lady and has many of these awesome projects available to watch on You Tube.
I have a second project that I made which is an adult beret that I crocheted recently, I have never tried anything like this in my life before, I was so pleased to have finished it, I used the colours, yellow, white and blue. The first picture shows the top of the beret with a crocheted flower.
the second picture shows it from underneath.
My 93 yr young mum acted as my model to show that it really does exist, lol.

I apologise for not being around these last couple of weeks I do thank you with all my heart for the lovely comments on my previous posts.
I want to thank you also for visiting, I do hope that you like my projects and join in the great challenge at

wow! these are fabulous! love the box and all the crochet items are awesome. i used to crochet... before my fingers got "crampy". now i can't hold a needle for long. but... surprisingly, my crafting doesn't bother my fingers... much. they still cramp, but not within 10 minutes. go figure.

anyway, these are all gorgeous!

hugs :)
