Sweet Treats ................................

Good afternoon to all of you out there in blog land, and I have to say the weather is sunny but still has a nip in the air here in the UK.  It has been nice in my Beach Hut with the sun smiling on the garden, so has been pleasant creating today.
My very good friend popped around yesterday with her betrothed.  She has purchased some MS punches, she is getting her head around planning for her Wedding.  Butterflies are heavily on the theme so the punches are border butterflies - we will shortly be putting the ideas together and hopefully coming up with her chosen theme.  In the meantime she has left (how lovely thank you) those lovely punches with me to play. - Have resisted today, as wanted to start looking at some box designs and sad to say for the Wedding ideas, I got carried away on this little creation.  (Promise I have located the one asked for too)

This is a little box of chocs, little as I have now eaten the other chocs, oops......... so it is small and sweet and holds the remaining 6 chocs. tut tut tut but oh well I am on holiday :)

So anyway this is the box
The lace is from a local department store, went shopping there yesterday.  The detail is liquid pearls opal on the top and baby blue around the bottom.  Took ages to pleat the lace around the oval nestie.  Love the idea of piping the liquid pearls on it takes me back to when I use to decorate special occasion cakes.

Here is the top angle.

As this is a thank you present I have entered this into  

Cute Card Thursday - Anything but square 
Creative Card Crew - Thank you
and finally 
Papertake Weekly Challenge of Ice cream flavors, now this is going to sound so weird but found it on the world wide web - my ice cream flavors are "cool bright blue bubble gum flavor and white chocolate chunk luxury ice cream and as I type the ice cream van is singing down the street.

Anyway enough of all that and hello to Vanessa who joined me today in my little section of blog land and thank you to all of those lovely comments that always cheer us through our days

Ciao  for now

This is so classy and feminine Kate, what a fantastic way to say thanks, and nick a few choccies for yourself in the process, lol. x

Kate it's gorgeous....have you tried wiring your lace to get the rosette effect it's so much quicker and means you can alter your final gather and circle to any size you like.
I just use some fine jewellery wire.

Hugs Ruth xx
