All about Birds xx

Hi all
How are we all doing in blogland today?? Its gone dull here and even a lil cooler but I'm not going complain, Mr Sunshine might not pop back!

Today I'm working on making lots and lots of stock for my stall, not long till July and I still haven't started on anything! Well I have ordered card stock but thats about it lol! I'm thinking I might make some of my new 3D creations and see how they sell this year plus plenty cards, boxes and crochet creations!

Now enough of my ramblings, I want to share a wee 18th Birthday Box I was asked to make for a "bird lover" Daughter. I was unsure how to go about making this but once I seen the Basic Grey papers I knew a lovely bright colourful box was the way to go

What do you think?? I used some wee owl digi stamps I found here and coloured with my promarkers, the other wee image on the outside is Some Odd Girl Forest Friend fairy and the lil owl girl inside is a Crafts and Me image Melinda and Moohoo, I do love my Hannah Lynne stamps!

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Paper Pretties - Flowers
I (heart) Promarkers - Anything Goes
Crafting For all Seasons - Things with Wings
Sparkle'n'Sprinkle - Anything Goes with Glitter
Die Cutting Divas - Happy Birthday

Will off to start cutting up card and looking out paper, well I know I'll probably get distracted as soon as I get the paper out lol! Anyone wanna come play too??
