Time for Tea

Over on Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is anything but a card and there's a fab prize of a PB stamp from Butterfly Kisses.
I always struggle to make anything other than a card so I went to my favourite resource website Splitcoast Stampers, they have a whole section on how to do and how to make. The latest entry is a drawer, so last weekend I made the carcass, it was a bit awkward since my trimmer didn't have 1/16 inch, I suppose if I had any patients I would have converted the sizes into cm.
During the week I decorated using My Minds Eye papers and I got to use my picket fence border punch from MS.

To be honest I was just going to stick the image on top of the drawer but then I decided I could give this to DD to put things in on her desk at work and how cute it would look if the top was like an easel card which she could it fold down to fit in her drawer at work.
The Wild Orchid coffee coloured cherry blossom flowers arrived just at the right time and the sentiment I did on the PC.
The tiny flowers are a EK success punch and the dots in the middle are the large hole on the cropadile.
Phew that was a long post. Don't forget to check the fab samples over on Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
It was a good job I made this in the week cos Mr Mojo left the building yesterday and I made a card that I'm so not happy with not even sure it make my blog.
