Card Winner

Hi Everybody,

I hope you are all well this weekend and have lots of good things lined up to do. We are having a lazy weekend and have nothing really planned ... which makes a change. 
 Ruby will be going out for her long Sunday morning walk with her friend Dougal and tomorrow she is back with more of her adventures.
 (If you are new to my blog then Ruby is my beautiful Cocker Spaniel puppy who gets up to all sorts of mischief)

The draw for the latest Shabby Chic card has been done and the name this week is you ...

Sharon Egolf
if you would email me please with your postal address to
I will get the card in the post to you straight away.

This week a couple of ladies have joined me from Patricia at Summerhouse Crafts and it's lovely to have you here. 
Patricia has made lots and lots of boxes over the years from my Origami Box Tutorial and every one is beautiful.

That tutorial,  over at Card Making Magic.  is in two parts to make the base and then the lid.
It's best to use double sided heavy paper as the inside can be seen too. 
It's not hard to do but the results are well worth the effort. so I hope you will give it a try.
They make lovely gifts and can be filled with all kinds of "Goodies"

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
