3rd - 1 Cherrie and 1 Lolita/Lad

How great are those prizes!?!?!?!

You should have reached me from the lovely Fran's blog if you're hopping along with us but if you just happened on my post you might want to start back at the beginning to be in with a chance of those prizes! Here is my creation for the hop using the gorgeous Cherrie with Mail!!!

It is a little letter tidy!! I've had a perspex box from a charging unit kicking around in my "make something out of it" stash for a long time now with the intention of turning it into some sort of desk tidy so Cherrie with Mail was just crying out to be used on it hehehe!! I have used Tim Holtz plaque and postage die to create the postage stamp edging along the top (to tie in with the letters theme LOL) using kraft cardstock. The papers are by K&Co inked with walnut stain distress ink.

I have coloured Cherrie with copics and given her red hair seeing as it is me who sorts all the mail and bills in our house! The gorgeous flourish behind her has been cut with Tim Holtz flourishes die and the edges inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.

I have made the flower with the Magnolia Peony die and some sticky back canvas that I just HAD to get after seeing the poinsettia on Tim's 12 tags LOL. I've stamped it with a letter stamp using black versafine ink and then inked the edges with antique linen. The gorgeous pebble in the centre is by Prima.

I added another flourish at the other side of the flower and some gorgeous black lace from my stash.
Inside I made two tabs for those wonderful bills we all love to receive!


Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Now it is time to hop on over to our lovely boss Kellie's blog to see what stunning creation she has for you!! Happy Hopping and Think {PINK} x

PS Don't forget to enter my Tickled Pink candy here for a chance to win Luca!! ends 28th January so be quick!
