Another Little Secret Gift Box for Someone Special

Good evening folks
Woohoo, I have finally managed to defeat bloggers gremlins and post some pics!! Thank you for all your concern and lovely messages and I have already told myself off for not posting something to let you know I was ok I was just getting sooo mad with blogger.
Anyway back to the crafting. I wanted to share with you another little gift box that I made for a very special friend of mine and I filled each tray to the brim with homemade fudge mmmm yummy!

Grab yourself a cuppa as there are quite a few pics!!
To create the beautiful shaped edge of the box lid and base I used the MS Cherish PATP. The beautiful lattice corner die is from Joy Crafts and the loral wreath die is from Memory Box and definately one of my all time faves. I used my trusty Promarkers to colour my beautiful Maggies and edged everything else with Pumice Stone DI (I just love this on white card) and Platinum Stickles.

The gorgeous Poinsettia die is from Spellbinders, then I scattered lots of pearls around.

Oops! nearly forgot the scrumptious patterned card is by Nitwits and is such a joy to use. The Happy Christmas Tag stamp is from Magnolia but I changed the sentiment using masking.

I just love the way these boxes open and it is surprising how much you can fit in them. Hope you like it and as long as blogger behaves I promise to be back much quicker to share more creations with you.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Inky Chicks - Challenge #1 'Anything Goes'
MDUC - Challenge #178 'Anything Goes'
Totally Gorjuss - 'Anything Goes with Ribbon'
Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia - Challenge #60 'Something New' (This is the first time I have inked up the lovely Tilda with gifts)
I Love Promarkers - #150 'Tag It' (I used my Magnolia ticket stamp to create a tag on the side of the box for my message)
Stampin for the Weekend - 'Anything Goes'

Bye for now
