Something Just A Little Bit Different..............

Not a card this time for my "main show and tell"......but later in the post I'm going to be showing the "updated" version of Laila's  birthday card that I included in my last post...I've just added a little something more to it and I like it much better........
So to my first's a lovely heart shaped box made from a cutting file designed by Debbie - Paper Pulse Blog Spot - but I'm afraid my photos don't do it the justice it deserves. Pop over and visit Debbie you'll just love her blog I assure you.
Apart from using black and white card to cut the file I embellished the box with stick-on pearls that I re-coloured with a Promarker and then added a flower from Wild Orchid Crafts and a bead string I had in my stash.
Ooops...had to come back to edit this post because I forgot to state the daisy border was from Birds Cards...just put it down to a senior moment....LOL
Anyways back to the heart shaped box I'm uploading three shots of it so you can see it a bit better.........hope you like........

And lastly the updated photo of Laila's birthday card......the balloon is from Debbie too....

Time for me to say my goodbyes for now..I have to go and set up my new has Windows 8 and I'm hoping I can get on with it.  I've heard good and bad things concerning W8...just hope I end up in the good things category....LOL
Hope you have a lovely weekend...thank you for calling by please drop in again......take care...!!

  3. Maureen, I love what you did with the heart box cutting file. The black and white adds such elegance. It's great to see the cutting files I share are being used. Thank you for sharing. xxx-Debbie

    P.S. I forgot all about the balloons. Those are from way back. I'm glad you could use them. :)
