Ring o Roses

Good morning.  I hope youare all well. My cards are like buses - you wait for ages then three come along at once!  Or in this case it is four in a row because I have another two cards to post in the next few days.

Today it is time for MAWTT and Wendy has asked us to put a ring of flowers on our project. Ideally she would like to see roses but she will be happy to see other flowers. As you can see I decided to decorate a box I had in my stash.

My Project

box lid

round box - Crafter's Companion store
papers - Lili of the Valley 
rose leaf strip - Britannia Dies
Classic scalloped circle - Spellbinders
Roses - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Lace and pearls - local haberdasher

Please pop over to the blog and see what my teamies have made and maybe you will be inspired to add your project to the challenge.

Well it's a wild wet morning here today, maybe I'll sit by the fire and craft!!

Take care.


  1. Wow Christine, this is a gorgeous box! I love the way you decorated the lid with roses.
    And I am glad you found me again. The same happened to me: I could not find your messages in my bloglist either. Hope, this is over now!
