Happy Thursday Everyone!....I almost put Friday...could it be I am ready for the weekend already...

Well we have been stuck at home and in the house for the last couple of days due to an ice storm.  I hope today is better and I can go out and get some much needed groceries.

Before I begin my post or share my creation. I want to wish a very special Happy Birthday to two very special people in my life, my sister in law Grace...the dearest sister whom I cherish...and my very dear friend Grace Nywening.(too funny..Grace and Grace born on the same day! LOL!)  I hope you have a day full of blessings and great fun and happy surprises, Grace!!  If you have a moment, please click on over to Grace N's blog, Th-ink-ing of You and wish her a Happy Birthday!!

Today is my day to post a creation over at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.  I created this box....AND MORE.

I used the Butterfly corner, Butterfly single stamp, Butterfly die and the Faith Stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The DP is from Basic Grey Origins.  The butterfly border is punched with a Martha Stewart Border Punch.  The image is colored with copics.  If you are interested in what I put in the box or how I created my gift box, please click on over to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog for my tutorial and completed project.

My next project is one I created using the Butterfly Single Stamp, the Butterfly die and the Faith Stamp set.  The dp is old paper I have had forever it seems from Basic Grey.  It was fun to combine so many of my, lace, butterflies...The border on the bottom and along the dp is created with the jumbo scalloped die from Spellbinders.
