What a treat # Creative Card Crew

A very good morning and welcome to my lovely new followers,
thank you for joining us... looking forward to sharing the journey together!!!!

We had a fabulous weekend away in a large country hotel, all decorated with red and silver for christmas.
 I met some really lovely crafters, so hi to you all and a special hi to Dawny P, it was  wonderful to meet you hun and spend the day together. We were there for the Copic Certification course whoohoo!! which I can proudly display on my blog.
Thank you Wendy for a wonderful day!!! I blend with the curtains nicely lol!!

I hope to share some copic hints and tips in the future, one for now is... something I never realised
instead of constantly taking the wrong top off,  there is a grey band around the end with the brush tip.
Dahhh!!! I can't believe I haven't seen it before.

On to our new challenge over at Creative Card Crew we'd like you to create a

                                              A treat bag or box

Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp

This is my DT creation

I made an acetate pillow box and stamped the chocolates with white stazon as I thought the dots looked like snow I covered them with a pink stardust pen.
The stamp set is 'How sweet it is'  by MFT coloured with copics E000 E00 E11 G20 G21 C1 and paper piecing on the chair and stool.
 Double sided DP Daisyd's 'maybe baby collection' distressed with rose coral chalk ink
MS doylie punch...    Marianne Designs scroll... punched flowers
ribbon is from my stash.

I hope you'll join in the fun and make a treat for someone special.

Thanks for stopping by,

Love cherie   //*.*\\
