Dotties Sunday Challenge - Wishing You Well

The Challenge this week has been set by Louise and is ......

This week the challenge is in the theme;

After all the over indulgence you've most likely had over Christmas ( a few poorly tummies and heads I guess?) The theme this week is Get Well Soon .You don't have to use those words, but it has to be aimed at cheering someone up or wishing them well . If you don't know anyone who's poorly your creation could be wishing them well in their new job or a new home...basically, lots of positive vibes in this card please AND of course a Charmed Download. Nice and easy?

As some of you might have notices I have made a couple of exploding boxes as pressies for Christmas, so I thought I would try and use on in the challenge. I used my craft robo to cut out a hexagonal box, with lid and one layer inside. I used orange and yellow card as I wanted it to be a cheerful colour. With some silver card to back the images to make them stand out. I used pre-coloured images for speed and I put them into word to get the sizing right. The images I used were from the True Love and Marriage Collection and the Rock n Roll collection. I used text boxes in word to add my text and an hexagonal one for the base.

I am thinking of giving this to my husband as 2008 has thrown alot at us, as he lost his job, for the 3rd time in as many years, money has been very tight and my dad died not so long ago who he really got on, so I thought the words just let him know that in all the troubles we still have each other and our love to get us through everything.

Here's to a better 2009.
