DT time,box,and GD card,for the craft barn

Hi guys,
Hope you are all okay well,went to the hospital yesterday and saw a really nice lady doctor who examined my foot,then she decided to squeeze it,oh my god out came a swear word and floods of tears,it was like someone had taken a large knife and stuck it into the side of my foot.
The poor doctor nearly flew off her chair,I did appologise,but blimey.
Anyway it turns,out that there are lots of tiny bones,on the side of your foot and she thinks they may all be fractured,properbly brocken now, But of course I have to wait,for an MRI scan to determine,what and which ones,are damaged. 7 week wait unless there is a cancellation. So in the meantime its keep the boot on now with crutches,to try and keep off it as much as I can rrrrrrrr.
Ok enough of me,its time for the Pixie cottage once again,with the theme this week,being green,along with another great sketch. I have used Hannah this time,
Papers,SU and papermania,colored with pencils,flowers,flourish,die cut adheshive stones,and ribbon,both from my buddy sarah.
So we would love you to play along,with us again this week,the link is HERE.

Next,its time for my card made for my GD spot at the craft barn,this is using,the Viva stamps,and the paper soft pens,full tutorial on the craft barn blog HERE with more pictures,too.
The link to the craft barn,shop is HERE and the link to see my tutorial is HERE
Finally I have made this box,tried this shape from scratch,just thought it would be a great size to keep pens,in,so here it is,the stamps are sheena Douglas,

back of box,I have stamped a butterfly,then cut it out with one of my shapes,keeping one of the wings,overlapping,after just playing,around.

top of box,were I have stamped,with archival coffee ink,

 This is the front of the box,decoupaged the butterflies,then added some paper soft,crimson,red onto the wings.
Finally would like to welcome Twells,and Gio to my blog bless you ladies,for adding to my followers list really appreciate that so much.
The next post I do with be my blog candy to thank you all,for your support and kindness you have shown,me and its a goodie so you won't want to miss it.

Susie Jefferson said...

LOOOOOVE that box! SO pretty, just love it. Thanks so much for visiting and saying nice things (you always do). Shock horror re the foot - what a bummer. Here's to the NHS pulling its finger out & hurrying up and fix it ASAP.

Hugs, love, etc - remember, this too shall pass (when I broke my toes all I got was elastoplast - and not much sympathy either, so I'm totally rooting for YOU!)
