The Squirrel and the Fox DT #65 Something Spooled

Hello! I hope your Sunday is going well! I have a thrilling trip to Saino's to do the weekly shop today, but I hope that later on my Mojo and I can get together over a brew and make a card!!!

It's time for another challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox! Where has the last fortnight gone??!! Our challenge this time is Something Spooled - that means you can use anything that comes wrapped around a spool or whatever - Ribbon,lace, twine, string - anything like that!

Our amazing sponsor is the fantastic Make It Crafty and a very lucky winner will have $Aus10 to spend at Zoe's fabulous online store! Can you tell that I'm a big fan?!

I decorated a tin that used to contain peppermint sweets, using a gorgeous MiC image on the lid:


And here's a side view:


I used Promarkers to colour Rosabelle and fussy cut her out. I stickled the roses, and added a bit of Glossy Accents to her jewels. The paper on the top and round the tin are from the 'Fairy Belle' 6 x 6 pad by Prima. The flowers and pearl flowers are from stash.

My 'spooled' items are the yellow and pink ribbons and the crochet lace.

I'm going to put a bar of soap in the tin, nestled in some pink tissue paper, to give to a friend for her birthday!

Do go and see the lovely creations that my teamies have made, and join in the challenge! (It would help if you spacified the spooled item(s) used!!)

I hope you're all having a good weekend, my lovelies! Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Promarkers used: Umber, Warm Grey 5, 3, 2; Dusky Pink, Ivory, Antique Pink, Cocktail Pink, Pastel Pink; Saffron, Vanilla, Satin
