More info on my new light box and a birthday card for my MIL

Happy Sunday all!  A few of you asked about the make of my light box (see yesterday's post) and it is Shenzhen Sanoto Technology - you can only order it direct from the supplier based in China.  It takes about 10-14 days delivery and comes in different sizes.  My husband had a very good experience with them.  I got the MK40 (mid sized) US$125 (about £78) but if you can get the smaller one MK30 for US$89 (about £55) and it should be fine if you're just photographing cards.  The shipping is free too.  I will take a photo of my next card using my old fabric box and the new one so you can see the difference.

I'm here today with my Bellarific Babe card and today I've got a card using Addy 'tude Loves to Sparkle...




I have a lot of birthday cards to make for January - April is obviously a randy month for many, lol!!  This will go to my mother-in-law who is used to dressing up and going to posh parties!  I used papers from the My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Ginger collection and the sentiment is from the Uptown Girl Posh Has a Present set (love that font!).  I used the Lil' Inker Designs Mini Bow Tie die (again!) and the October Sketch For You to Try for my layout.  I am entering this into the Simon Says Stamps challenge of anything goes.

You've still got time to play the current Bellarific Tuesday challenge starting over at SplitcoastStampers "White Space - create a CAS card with plenty of white space".
 
Thanks for visiting and I'll see you tomorrow with the start of the All That Scraps January previews!
