Mum's Easter Box

Hi there,

I hope you've had a Happy Easter & are not chocolate-d out. I worked the 4 nights of easter but had a lovely evening last night with Mum & Dad, my Aunt & cousins. At least it should be a good pay, some small compensation for no break over the longest long weekend of the year!

Every year Mum tells me not to buy her too much chocolate, but it always feels a bit mean not to give her much. As I've mentioned before, I'm currently enrolled in Ustamp, and when I saw this box, designed by Tracey Old, I knew it would make a lovely gift box to hold some Cadbury Caramello eggs (Mum & I love caramel).

I decided to use the new Cottage Wall DSP and the matching Cottage Garden stamp set. I also used the new Window Sheets to make the box lid. This new mini catty has so many awesome things in it that it probably is good that I worked the whole of Easter! Anyway, I really hope that Mum liked it. I had fun creating something to make her little treat a bit more special. Love ya Mum, xox.

Must go & do some washing, cleaning etc. Not enough days off this week :-(

Fi xox

How lovely Fi! I'm sure your mum appreciated your kindness! I did U-Stamp once ... and even though I loved it ... I couldn't keep up with it! How are you finding it??? Hugs, Andrea xxx

oh, you give your mum candy for Easter? Such a sweet & thoughtful daughter! Coupled with the beautiful handmade box, I'm sure she just loved it.

Hi Fiona,
I've only just now found your box on my google reader! This is awesome, and I'm sure your mum loved it! I haven't got this DSP & stamps, but you're definately making them a must have now!

What a bummer to have worked all Easter, but ohhh, all those new babies! What a treat!
