A boxed set of 5 Thank you Cards

This is a Ferrero Rocher box that I have covered with Kate Knight Amethyst- Floral range, inside and out, I have used a felt butterfly from Henbury Lane and a little magnetic strip to hold closed.
The box is the perfect size for 135mm square cards..... and I have made 5 using the same range of papers throughout, with a little core'dinations card stock.
The sentiments were printed onto white card, and I have also used my Sakura gelly roll pen to highlight details on the papers. the flowers have been made using an assortment of Dahlia nesties, Prima and henbury flowers and a little perfect pearls spritzed here and there, the gems and other details are also from the Henbury Lane goody bag.
I really enjoyed making this for a gift for a special friend of mine and I shall give it to her tomorrow.

Now all I have to do is eat some more Ferrero Rocher, so that I can use another box!!
Thanx for visiting :)
I have entered this in the Pocket Full of Posies challenge this week.

A Favourite Page of mine to share with you

Good morning everybody :)
It's lovely and sunny again here today, we love sunshine!!
Today I wanted to share a page from a memory album I have made to remember my Grandmother, who died this year. She was an amazing lady and a great influence to me and I really look forward to meeting her again in the resurrection.
I love this page with it's layers and pocket with a copy of her family tree and the text from a tribute I made at her funeral; printed on the reverse side of the V&A papers that I have used throughout this album, then folded and stored in the pocket.
The wooden 'E' is the last letter of her pet name 'Millie'. I have entered this post into this weeks Simon Say's Stamp & Show 'Layers' challenge.
Thank you for visiting :)
