"Six in a Box"

Hello Bog friends, hope none of you suffered any damage in the storms overnight.   All good here, there is Snow on the hills I see out the kitchen window, I am not a great fan of "the white stuff" when it is so close!!!!
Are you all managing to get through the jobs your your lists??    I still have a list, I think I have it all under control.
Thank you so much for taking time to visit, I know time is very precious just now.   I am hoping to keep Blogging till the weekend then I feel I should "call it a day" till after the New Year.
Have been wracking my brains (what little there is of them) for a gift for Elaine.  I know, I know it is very late in the day.  This hunt has gone on for months.  Elaine and her family have plenty money, they just buy when they want anything.  I came to decision at lunch time  .........  I am taking her away for couple of nights (just her and I) to her favourite City as well as mine, Glasgow.   Elaine will have to set the date, she is a very busy lady.  I really think she could do with a few days away, they have been rushed off their feet in the Tearoom.  I will book the Holiday Inn Hotel near the Buchanan Street Bus Station.  That`s fine and handy for arriving and leaving on the bus.   No point taking a car, costs a fortune to park the blooming thing!!!
Decision made, I am now trying to word something.   I want to make a "Scroll" which I will tuck in a "kitchen roll inside" decorated like a cracker.

Today`s offering is 6 little cards I made and popped in a box.  I actually made 2 lots, Hazels request for gifts she needs
These cards are all 4 x 4
Made from "bits" I put in the bag for the school before Hazel put in her request.  Lucky it had not gone along to the school.
Most of the bits are from Tilda Paper Stacks.  I love these Stacks and use them a lot, there are always loads of bits left.
Middle one on the top was an experiment with a Justrite Stamp and silver embossing powder.  Turned out fine but never used the piece....used up now.
The Rennie Mackintosh Die Cut I got from my Blog friend Flora.  Flora has been off the scene for such a long time. I still keep in touch, she is well.  I do miss her very witty posts though.
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time

  1. Beautiful cards Patricia. Like you I will blog till Monday and then I'll have a much earned rest. I still do my knitting though as I'm really bad if my hands are idle. My Father used to say the Devil made work for idle hands, so maybe that's the reason. Hugs Rita xxx

  2. Such a gorgeous selection of cards Patricia. I love the papers and beautiful designs.
    Your special gift idea for your friend Elaine, to take her away for a couple of days, is really lovely.
    hugs Sue xx

  3. Hi Patricia
    Gave up with the idea of a list when it would have taken a roll of wallpaper to write it on. Just winging it now with a hope and a prayer.
    Gorgeous cards my dear. I would be loath to give away a scrap of beautiful Tilda. If you're still in touch with Flora (I'm assuming Crafty Lark Flora) please give her my regards. Her blogging is missed.
    Sweet dreams.

  8. Super little cards. I adore Rennie Mackintosh! My list is getting shorter thank goodness. I am taking a very early trip to the supermarket in town in the morning and then that's it's totally finished. No way will I attempt to go into town on those last couple of days. It's manic!!! Have a good day. Hugs Christine xx

  9. Morning Patricia, What a lovely idea for a gift for Elaine, she will adore it.
    Your six cards look beautiful, reminding me of sunnier times, it can't come soon enough for me haha, I don't like the winter at all and I'm 'bah humbug' with snow, lovely on a Christmas card but I don't want it haha.
