" Four Little Boxes"

Hello Blog friends, well I don`t know about where you are but we`re about blown away here.
It has been so windy today I could hardly see as got into the open countryside heading home from Dundee.   The top soil off the fields was blowing like snow and you could hardly see through it.

Thank you for visiting me today and for all the lovely comments you have been leaving. 

I went into Dundee to be with Hazel for her first appointment since all her Hysterectomy, Chemo and Radio Therapy..........................she`s great and does not have to go back for another 6 months "Wooopppeee".    We did a little happy dance, how great is that.  Tell you what this time last year we were crying not dancing, so a very Happy Day here.

My Post today is little boxes I have done to pop in my cabinet at the Tearoom.  All the others that I had in have sold, they were Black and Pink.  I just hope these go as quickly.

Boxes made using SB Bracket Box Die,  you do need a large Die Cutting Machine to do these.  I have my trusty Grand Calibur.
I used some Foiled Kanban Card I have had for ages, got it when I was down in Yorkshire.  That was in the days when you could go into the factory and buy a BIG box of card and paper for £20.00.  Unfortunately Kanban are now closed.
Pink Card Stock 
Embellishments are a selection of things I had made and in my box, plus an odd button.
Each box has a little piece of tissue pink inside, I feel it just finishes off the box.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you take the time to come and see me.

    You and I must certainly have the same mindset Patricia. I too made some of these little boxes last week using Kanban that I bought ages ago and never actually used. (I have so much stuff like that!) They look so pretty and I'm sure will look great in the cabinet.

    Have a good day. It looks as if it is going to be nice here today - but I'm whispering that!

    Secondly, the wind here, thankfully isn't as bad as yours, I can only imagine what it must be like with the soil flying, scarey !!
