Tick Tock Chocolate.

You may have been wondering where I have been. Unfortunately the last few weeks haven’t been the easiest, lots of things have happened and to top it off my dog became very ill, very quickly, he split open all up one side of his body with his insides were coming out, it took the vets a week to stitch him up and he is still very sore and recovering, having to wear a t-shirt to keep the stitches covered and a cone on his head, he’s still leaking from his wounds. :(
Hopefully he will be fully recovered soon though and back to his self again :)

But great news, I was approached to join a new design team over at the The Stamping Shack with lots of new and old digis at bargin prices, why not join us over in the challenges too!

When I finally got some me time, I created this masculine card with 10 Celebration Chocolates inside, for my Pin and Tack DT creation for this month. You may have seen my other Tea-light cards, that hold 5 tea-lights or 10 celebration chocolates, other gifts could work or fit in too.
I chose maroon/burgundy card along with gold mirror card. I created my own backing paper by stamping out some stopwatches from the Kanban Jasper Collection and sprinkled over some embossing powder, heated it up and the background was complete - a simple homemade matching paper, which could be created with any stamp of choice.

Backing Paper – Homemade with the pocket watch from Kanban, Jasper stamp set and gold embossing powder from Martha Strewart
Gold Mirror Card and Maroon/burgundy Plain card
Stamp – Male Mannequin from Kanban, Jasper stamp set
Promarkers: Cool Grey 4, Sunkissed Pink, Sunflower and Burgandy
Dies - Weathered Clock from Sizzix
Embellishments – 5 Gold Card Candi, 10 Celebration chocolates, 4 Anita gold glitter letters

  4. First, and most importantly.....I wish your poor dog a very speedy recovery, and hope he is soon back to 100%. What a horrible thing to happen.....Our previous GSD, Max was a frequent user of the 'lampshade' and various t-shirt coverings, after many 'ops', and I know how awful it is for the dog, and you too.
    Your creation is fab, such a good idea, a personalised 'Selection Box'....might have to try some.
