A little wine? A little Chocolate? Yes, Please!!!

Good morning! First, this is my second post for the day. Yes, you read that right...second!! If you would like to see my cute little bday card using a MFT stamp...click HERE.  Second, did you notice the changed look to my blog??? I'm still working on it. I was going to have somebody just do it for me, but decided that I should learn a little bit more about the coding and what not so I bought a blog in a box.  Basically it has elements but you have to put the Html code in, etc.  I'm having fun playing with it.

Now on to my project. I totally hijacked my card/box that I created this morning. That's right, I hijacked the idea and I'm not even ashamed about it!! lol  Not only did I hijack the idea, but I even used the same image! Gasp!  Ms. Lisette made the CUTEST box (you can see it here) and I just loved everything about it down to the image!  So first I said, I must have that image. It's a new release from Crafter's Companion. Talk about adorable!! Once I had that image,  I got down to business.

This box was also used by Dena and she has a really adorable take on it here.   I think I know about 30 ppl that had Birthdays in Oct! Geesh!  I made this one for a special friend! Who is probably looking at my blog right now....way before she is getting it...but it can't be helped. I will be away from my blog for a few days and wanted to get this up.  Yea, I could have scheduled it, but I wanted to enter into a challenge for Crafter's Companion! So here it tis'.







Isn't she adorable?????????????? I love her. She is called Deserve a Treat. She was so much fun to color too.  I colored her with Copic markers and the beautiful paper is from Authentique. Have you checked out their papers yet? They are so pretty and I just saw a new line that will be coming out and I can't wait! I printed the sentiments out on my computer. I then paper pieced the couch. Lots of little cutting there!! There are two ways to put this little box together. One way you use cardstock only for the base the other you use chipboard so it's a bit sturdier. I used the chipboard, as I will be shipping this baby out and didn't want it to get damaged!

Challenges:

KB Monday - Anything Goes
Landscape challenge - Paper Piecing
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Pollycraft - Girls, Girls, Girls
Pink Elephant - Scoring
