Gift Box - and a fabulous cow!

Here's my offering over on Holidays with the Cricut today - gift wrap tuesday. Loads of 'how to' photos over on the blog, and another chance to leave your name over there to be in with a chance to win this week's prize of not one but two cartridges for a couple of lucky peeps.




When I was last in the Lake District with my friend Anne, I fell in love with some cow paintings, so was delighted on Christmas day to open my present to find what I thought was a cow print. It wasn't until Saturday that I discovered that it wasn't a print at all, she drew it herself for me, making this gorgeous copy of the painting I had fallen in love with. Don't you think it's brilliant? I call her Buttercup (the cow, not Anne), which is such a delightfully unoriginal name for a cow that it seems totally apt, and I will treasure her forever

Tomorrow is wild card wednesday, so tune in to see what I have been up to

  3. What an adorable box Enfys ... perfect for little chocolates or other candies ... or even other gifts too, like little note cards. I am also thinking this might be nice in a young girls room to sit on her dresser as a place to put her special notes, jewelry and other treasures.

    BTW ... I LOVE THAT COW. Anne did a spectacular job on it. She has an amazing gift to be able to draw so beautifully.

    Hugz,
