Valentine Sweet Box

Hi everyone

Yes I know twice in one week but this was something I have really been wanting to share with you.  I have seen lots of these boxes around the blogs and have wanted to make one for ages so when it came to do my Dad's card to give to my Mum for Valentine's Day I thought it would be ideal.  It became even better when Donna from Bearly Mine brought out her lovely Floral Fantasies download as I wanted this to be very special for my Mum as they have been married now for 52 years and as she loves roses, I wanted to reflect this.

My Dad then filled the box with her favourite Lindt and Raffaelo chocolates, so as you can see I couldn't share it with you until she had received it.

Sorry but there is a few pictures (you can't tell that I am really proud of it can you lol).

I am going to enter this into the following challenges.

Bearly Mine Challenge- Ribbons and Pearls
Digital Tuesday - Use a Diecut (Marianne Die)
Spoonful of Sugar - Anything but a card (I know this is a card but it is also a sweet box, so hope this counts)
Papertake Weekly - Putting on the Glitz
Ooh La La - For Someone Special
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - Love Themed Gift
Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge - Romance
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Flowers
One Stitch at a Time - Pretty
One Stop Craft Challenge - Love
Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge - Sweet Treats

Well that is it so I will now say goodnight but I will be back later to show you a card that I have made for a one off challenge that can't be combined with anything else.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you visit again soon.
