A Small Gift

Yesterday we were invited have a drink and get to know out new neighbours.
Apart from wine, I wanted to take something  a little more personal but, not knowing her taste, I wasn't sure what that gift would be until I spotted our latest issue of Stampin' Success.
It featured a set of cards in a box, great idea. I seemed to spend most of the afternoon on these cards. Honestly, you'd not know I first stamped as an adult 25 years ago! I had speckles of white embossing powder EVERYWHERE!
Anyhow, a few hours later I emerged from my craft room, a bedraggled wreck, grasping my four cards. I then had little time to make the box so decided on a belly band around an acetate box (photo above). The band wasn't quite what I'd intended and I wasn't pleased with the colour, despite it being one of those in the floral paper design.
I was much happier with the cards themselves and hope you'll stop by tomorrow when I'll be showing those to you.
