Evening all!
Hope you are all well!
Yesterday I packed up my craft room ,temporarily, it was still sad, but discovered lots of things I had forgotten about and donated a crate of goodies to my mum!

Operation build nursery is commencing!! Eeeek!
We had one of those fancy 4D scans done yesterday, it was amazing! Here's a sneak peak of our little boy!
Its crazy we are so nearly there! 29 weeks gone on Wednesday!
Anyway!! I am here for reasons other than my baby boy! Haha
This creation was done way back in July but I never got round to posting it as I fell pregnant and well, as you know, was not very well!

My sister in law asked for Money towards their wedding present and so I wanted something nice to present it in, so I created a cute little drawer box!

This was so much fun to make! There is a little dip in the lid so you can easily pull the drawer out, and as you can see I just added their names and the date of the wedding. We also gave them a Wedding card as I didn't want my hubby defacing this with any text hahaha!

This beautiful Image is one I have had for a while in my posession but never got round to using!
It is called Never Forget I Love You by the wonderful Phindy's Place

I coloured it using my coloursoft pencil and the background was my first attempt at trying the sky using Dorcas Designs Tutorial Here.

It needs a bit of work but I am pleased with how it came out and more importantly the bride and groom liked it :)

This is the design i Used for the Box, It is from SplitCoast Stampers, I Just created an easel style card and mounted it on the top.

So thanks all for visiting, hope you are all keeping well!
My craft room should be back in its new location next week, but I have a few creations I have held back, ya ha even a couple of Christmas ones! Hahaha
