The summer holidays are over and the kids are back to school tomorrow.....and the weather is set to be good for this week -typical LOL.

I have had very little time to craft over the past six weeks, but will hopefully get my mojo back and have some fun crafting over the next few weeks. My youngest was invited to a birthday party over the week - this little girl is his "girlfriend" and he constantly says he will definitely marry her! Anyway I had some specifications, could I make a card and a box for her gift (which he choose too as it had to be special) in pink and it had to be beautiful. He chose the image too for the card.

This is one of the new autumn stamps from Sugar Nellie and so adorable. I have coloured her with watercolour pencils, a little highlighting with white gel pen, pink cardstock, papermania background paper and sentiment from Designer Digitals.

The box entitled Pack a Picnic...the template is available from here and it is one of fantastic designs by Lauren Meader. It was so quick to make and quite spacious. I used the keepsake romance board for the scalloped edge, large brads, and pink and white cardstocks. I have made a pretty simple version, but I can see this little box being used many times from now on. The image is another from the Sugar Nellie Autumn sets which I have watercoloured.
