New monthly challenge over at Cupcake Cards and Crafts!

Fabby news!  I have re-joined the Cupcake Cards and Crafts DT for their monthly challenges and this month the theme is...

Birds and Bugs!


This month the DT are showcasing a gorgeous new collection called "Dragonflies" and here is my make for it...





I know, it's not a card - I surprised myself!!  I love this pillow box die by Stampin Up (got mine from super blog mate Nic, The Sticky Elf) and simply used a range of the dragonfly papers with the solid papers that also come with the collection - perfect co-ordination!  I am going to fill these babies up with something but I don't know what yet!  I've seen those teeny tiny smelly beads you get (think you're meant to sprinkle them in your lingerie drawer) or Smarties (cos we all love choccies!).  Or perhaps for a crafty friend might fill 'em up with some ribbons or flowers.  Any suggestions welcome!

You can see more gorgeous DT inspiration over at the challenge blog here and also meet new teamie Tammy who has a fabulous style!

See you later!

Great pillow boxes and fabulously decorated, lovely papers. I don't do boxes, or should I say, can't do boxes of any shape or size, I just always make a complete mess.
