Some quick cards and a box

Hello everyone,
no I haven't vanished from the face of this earth... We are in the last stages of planing for our loft extension and due to start building in 2 weeks time, so life is hectic in our household.
So I keep this short an sweet... I have a few cards to share that were made with the new Papermania kit in black and teal .




Also a card made for the Magnolia challenge over on DC which was to use yellow and pinks and a bit of sparkle.


The box is inspired by Lauren Meader who designs for PTI and I love her work.




I saw her new template and as it will only be available from tomorrow (15th May) and I thought it looked pretty easy to put together I had a fiddle on the computer and made my own template. Lo and behold, it works perfectly. Happy bunny :-) I made the pretty floral paper with a PTI stamp set as well. I stamped in 2 colours onto pearlized blueish paper and edged with the same ink and a sponge.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the visit!
