A little gift for you

Hello and welcome to my blog, I don't blog as much as I use to and hope to get back into it, it's just I'm slow and have so much to do now that I'm retired.  I always thought I'd have more time to play, but it turns out not as much LOL.
 A few years ago my son Tommy and his wife Shellie sent me flowers for Mother's Day and with them came a box of candy.  I love the little box and put it aside in hopes one day to redo it.  Well I finally got around to it and I want to share it with you!
Of course I used the wonderful gorgeous paper from Heartfelt Creations along with their stamps and dies.
Paper and tag are from the Birds and Bloom Collection
Leaves are from  the Stamp Open Leaf and die is the Classic Leaf
The flower is from the Delightful Daisy Collection along with the die.
I used some Stickles in the flowers and leaves to give them a little sparkle. 
That's it for now.......hope you like this little gift box and so glad I kept it.

So gorgeous!! Beautiful way to up-cycle. I don't know what happens to my time either. I think the computer is responsible for gobbling up huge blocks of time. I'm trying to quit computering, but today everything it so tied to it.

What a beautiful box Olga.

WOW!! Olga, I always know it's going to be beautiful on your blog, but those flowers are sensational. I had to take a close look and I really love the dimension you give all of your flowers and leaves. The Stickles really gives them a fantasy look. Lovely and the box too! Glad I'm not the only one that saves things to use. ;-)

Gorgeous box Olga. Great work - it looks fabulous. Strange how when you retire you wonder how you ever found time to go to work.

Vicki Dutcher said...

Too funny to hear how busy you are in retirement! Good for you. I love your box - those papers worked perfect for a gorgeous storage unit!

Becky said...

Olga, this is absolutely breathtaking....it's true that when you retire you have more to do than when you worked. I can't figure that out!
