"Now the Box"

Hello Blog friends, I hope the rain has not been too bad your way.
We did not have rain till late afternoon, it was just down right miserable from early morning.
Thank you for coming to visit, I know you are all busy people.  I love that you take time out of your busy day to drop into my Blog space.  I read all your lovely comments and really enjoy popping over to  your Blogs to see what you have been up to. 
Went to Perth this morning to get my hair cut so  -  a happy bunny again.  I was going to do some shopping but that all changed.  Audrey phoned to remind us about the School Harvest Concert this afternoon.  Remind us!!!! she had forgotten to even tell us...........typical just typical of our darling Audrey.   We spent from 1.45 this afternoon at the school.  The "performance" started at 2pm Oh! My! Word! some of the children were so funny.  Bearing in mind there are only 20 children in the school, they did extremely well.  They have 4 children who play Bass Instruments, not that well, but they did their very best.  The children had spent the morning baking Apple Muffins and an Apple Tray Bake to serve with the teas and coffees.  The apples came from the trees in the School garden.  All in all we had a good afternoon.
I did intend making a card to post on my Blog tonight but I ran out of time.  You just have to put up with the final part of the Gift Box of Cards  ......  the box itself.

The original box I  made did not have the panel, frame or butterfly.
I saw the beautiful box that Ang, (Mrs Duck) had made for her card.   I decided I had to make an effort and do something better than a "plain old box"
The box measures 7 x 91/2 x 11/2 inches made with Lidl card.  A heads up from (Mrs Duck) thank you so much for that.  I used plain brown card for the base and patterned for the top.  The 12 cards are set out two lots of 6 side by side
I make all my boxes using my Ultimate Pro
Die Cut panel done using a SB Die
Frame using SB Matting Basics Dies
Organza ribbon and pearls to finish off

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for visiting today I really appreciate it
Till next time

    I love your box, the perfect finishing touch to your magnificent gift for Oriel, she will love it.
    Does Lidl sell card, then, I must investigate ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. Good morning Patricia, your Harvest Concert sounds lovely. Your box is as Patricia above says, the perfect finishing touch, and I am sure that Oriel will be so thrilled with it. Weather here today is rain but not too cold 16 degrees. Take care.

  13. Your box is beautifully created, as always, Patricia.....I love the colours!

    I had to stop by and thank you for your concern, and for sticking with me. Unfortunately, I haven't been well. I've had to have quite a lot of tests which are still on going. I've also had to put crafting and blogging on hold for a while.
    Thanks again, Patricia.
    Hugs, Sasha xx

  24. Gorgeous box Patricia! Couldn't help myself but I was immediately thinking chocolate ;-) You've done a great job here. I desperately need to go to the hairdresser's as well, but simply don't have the time at the moment, argh! And Saturday is no option, because that's the busiest day of the week for my hairdresser! So if you see someone with hair like a blown up chicken, that's bound to be me, lol! Hugs, Ira x
