Chicken Run

Good morning lovelies! Well its the second day of the Easter Release at Crafty Sentiments - two more images are being previewed today - and the fabulous stamps should go on sale at some point tomorrow! They're all gorgeous - super cute and perfect for those Easter cards we need to be making! Having said that I've made a box with my image today which is called Chicken Run:

This box started life as a packaging box for claritystamps coming from Create and Craft - I've covered the box with raspberry road papers - added my image coloured with promarkers and cut with a spellbinders die and added twine,WOC flowers and some ribbon. The box - as you can tell from the sentiment - contains a present for Penny for Easter - its some clothes for Penny's Rainbow bear that she got from build-a-bear for her birthday. I'm going to add a packet of mini eggs too.

I'd like to enter my recycled gift box into the following challenges:

Before I go I must show you my little darlings with the cards they gave me for mothers day:

Aren't they clever? They bought me a necklace each and their gorgeous daddy gave me some lovely crafty goodies - whoop whoop!!!! A fabulous day where I was spoiled rotten!

Hope you had a good day too! Thanks for dropping by!

Big Hugs
