Miss You

Sorry I haven't been blogging as much lately - apart from my AnnaBelle Stamps design team posts I haven't been crafting as much as usual. I put it down to being sucked into the current season of My Kitchen Rules which commands my attention for the hour that I usually have for crafting (7:30-8:30). Is anyone else addicted to that show like I am? Argh! :) I don't even like cooking! But anyway, I do apologise, and I hope to get some extra crafting in this weekend so that I can share more during the week!

So since it's Friday I am here to once again share an AnnaBelle Stamps challenge with you. This time we want you to:

You could make something using the colours of chocolate, or perhaps create something that incorporates chocolates in some way. I created a box to hold some Ferrero Rochers (yum).

I created the tag using white cardstock with a flower from the Fanciful Flowers set stamped in Scarlet Versacolor ink. The sentiment is from the Garden Silhouettes set, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

For the box I randomly stamped flowers from the Fanciful Flowers set in Versamark ink on red Bazzill cardstock which I had cut to size and scored with my Martha Stewart scoring board but hadn't folded yet so that it lay flat.

I cut and folded the box base and lid, popped in the chocolates and wrapped it up with some white satin ribbon tied in a bow. Done!

Hope you get time to play along this week! For some added inspiration click on the links below to see what the rest of the Belles have created this week:
