I'm Hoping This Will Work As......

My daughter is going into hospital today to have an operation on her mouth, she has been waiting 15 weeks when she was told she would wait no more than 12 and then only got this appointment because I rang on Tuesday to find out how much longer she would have to wait and lo and behold there was a cancellation for this Friday, unfortunately we have not received a letter (although one was promised on Tuesday) and so we have no idea what we are supposed to take only that we should be there at 7.30am. By the time this posts we should hopefully already be there.

This is the first time I have scheduled a posting so whether or not it works remains to be seen, I will check this out when I get home tomorrow. I will not be around on my Member Forum either for obvious reasons.

Anyway, yesterday I decided to make a little something for my DH who helped with the tricky bits of re-vamping my blog, and listened sympathetically when I rung him at work and told him I had lost everything (luckily this wasn't true and I found where I had backed it up to).... so here is what I made him.... just a little something, mustn't spoil them too much must we... lol

So I made the little box, it has a base and the top slides on, like a matchbox (Look Out Stampers Club Girls, I will demonstrate how to make the box only in my Members Forum).... The base of the box was made from Barely Banana Cardstock and the top is made from Le Jardin Patterned Paper, it is retired, but still available to buy. The Hershey chocolates were wrapped in little pieces of patterned paper and I stamped a little embellishment from the One Of A Kind Stamp Set. The cardstocked used on here was again Barely Banana and Always Artichoke, the ribbon used is Always Artichoke too... and voila a little gift for darling hubby who confessed he has never had a Hersheys Chocolate before.

If this posts, have a good day girls, take care xx
