Talk about last minute...

...well I finally got around to finishing my nieces birthday box and more importantly made her a card for her 21st birthday, just as well as she celebrates with a party tonight, couldn't go empty handed could I. I got her a cute pair of earings , platinum of course.

With the help of Jude I got some whiff of joy stamps and I figured this image would be perfect for a young lady, hope she likes the colours.The layout is actually from the whiff of joy challenge, must say I did find it a little hard but I quite like the end product.

Crafty creations have a challenge to make your own flowers and as I didn't have one in the right colour I decided to have a  go with a daisy punch and a small heart punch, one on the card which is more elaborate and then some on the box.

Creative cottage has a new theme as they are a new challenge blog, open to interpretation. Well hope they don't mind I just used my new stamp and little gems I bought last week. They are also looking for new DT members so why not pop across and see for yourself.

Cute card thursday have a celebration as they are celebrating their 2nd birthday ,there theme is celebrations,so my card can join in as its to celebrate Chelsea's 21st birthday.

Polka doodles have a challenge for a special birthday or milestone and my card could fit into both of those so I can't believe another entry.

Papercutz has an anything goes challenge as does Secret saturday crafter, well as I have 2 bits to my birthday project hopefully neither challenge will mind sharing, but no fighting over the card and box please.

Totally papercrafts has a things with wings theme this time so my little flutterbys, sorry butterflies will cover that challenge.

Magical crafts challenge #10 has a things with wings theme too, so thats another.

Charisma have a more specific challenge of beautiful buuterflies so hopefully my duel layer with the fantasy film will make them beautiful enough for their challenge. Its worth poppin over as there is the chance of 3 prizes and they have a DT call too.

Paperplay have a theme of seeing double, using the same image twice on your project, hope I don't get penalised for seeing triple!

Finally Totally gorjuss have a challenge of sweet, again open to interpretation. Well I think my little gift box is sweet as well as my little butterflies so hopefully they will too.

Have a great weekend and to all those mummies and other special ladies have a special weekend not just tomorrow and get spoilt and pampered by your loved ones.Thanks for popping by and hopefully I'll be back soon.
