A trio of gifts for a sweet girl !!!

Good morning my dears,  I hope you are all looking forward to your weekend,  I am off to our crop meeting at Cumbernauld to catch up with my lovely crafty buddies.  I haven't seen them since May!!!!  and that's far too long,  anyway's I digress.

I was having a clear out and tidy up in my craft room and came across a few Prima 12 x 12 papers and flowers from the Sun Kissed "Kindred Spirit" collection, and needing a gift for a very sweet girl who has helped me immensely in choosing my new car (picking it up next week)

I only had 1 and a half sheets so I used them to make the card and the flowers box.  the Maltesers box cover was 1 sheet of Glitz paper given to me at my last crop from my lovely friend Lynne Brown.

I'm not going to go into too many details as the trio I think speaks for itself. But I have to give credit to the lovely Sam Pootles for her fabulous punch board tutorial for the maltesers box. I made a slight adaptation to it by making a belly band for the closure instead of Sams ribbon.

I've used TH brushed corduroy distress ink - Cheery Lynne large flourish die - Marianne Design leaves - Magnolia Sentiment Especially for you and Thank you sentiment from my stash. Martha Steward five leaf flower punch and butterfly punch.

That's it from me for now my lovely's, wishing you all a fabulous weekend.

OH this is so perfect in every way. Love it and I'm sure the sales lady will too.

I'm so glad you are not having your car from the same garage as me, otherwise my lowly card would be thrown in the bin. LOL.
