This is my card for today, I had set out to make some cards to enter some of the challenges, but this is an image which I had stamped and coloured awhile ago and not done anything with, so when I was tidying my desk (a bit) today, I came across her and had to finish her. I do love the Elisabeth Bell stamps and I was hoping to order the surprise kit over at Whiff of Joy, but with money being tight at the moment, I really do have to cut back and unfortunately, haven't ordered (no doubt I will regret it, but c'est la vie!!).
My stamp here is from Whiff of Joy, my dp papers are digital downloads from Sweet Shoppe Designs which I thought so appropriate for this image - if you click on the picture and have a closer look, you'll see why.
On a separate note, I have been visiting both Suzy and Suzanne's blogs seeing their updates on CHA - and in a word 'Wow' they must be having an absolute "fandabydosy" time. I am soooo jealous - I would love to go to CHA!! - Maybe - one day - a girl can dream!!!
Anyway, I have now drawn the winner for my January blog candy and can now announce the winner to be..........................
Send me your address to my email here and I will send your goodies out to you asap!
Once again, I would like to thank everyone who took the time to stop by my blog and took part, your comments are always great motivation and it's a great inspiration visiting your blogs in turn. Thank You!
February blog candy will be posted this Wednesday (28th) so don't forget to check back, I have posted a tiny sneak peak for you!....

My project for today, has been to convert a plain, school exercise book into a note book for Emma for her skating. She has up until now been using a large A4 folder which is not practical and not necessary - its just to make notes on moves, remember what needs to be practised any coment from or to the coaches and somewhere to keep her cd with the music to her routine - so from this..............................
To this inside................................
And finally, the back.....................

I came across a tutorial for this box at splitcoasts, I've tried a few boxes that I have come across, but in all honesty found most of them to be too small, however, this one was just the right size and I was actually surprised with its final size which is quite big for a box made of one sheet of 12x12 paper - anyway I made a 'Tooth Fairy' box for my Emma (who just lost another baby tooth!) using a Toodles & Binks stamp - 'Celeste' - the perfect stamp for this project!
Here is a close up of the saying inside the box.

Front & Back
You've seen the cards with the matching envelopes and now here is the project completed. It is a set of six cards with matching envelopes (here) which I wanted to make into a really special gift, so I played around with an old writing set which I had, took it apart, made a new template with the new measurements to fit the cards which I made (DL size) and voila!
I will be making this card gift box set at my various workshops (here). Although it has taken me a few days to work out and put together, now that I do have the measurements etc it is a really easy project to put together and one that can be made to match whichever card size you decide to use, be it DL, A6, A5, square etc and I will be showing how to do that in the workshops.
For my project here I have used six lovely lady stamps from Rubbernecker/Creative Expressions - some can be bought here, and the papers are from Pink Petticoat, the heart pendant on the spine I made from Fimo. I also used nestability die shapes and my cuttlebug embossing folders.
Here are some more pictures.
I have also made another project using this template, but again changing the size and a slight variation on the use. I shall post that later when its complete.
