Another Happy New Year & Occassions Box

Hello friends!  Just wanted to show you a few more items I've made with my new beloved stamp set Nature Walk!  I can't seem to get enough of this set!  This set will be coming out in SU!'s Occassions Mini Catalog, which starts on Jan. 4th, as will the paper featured in the box called Botanical Gazette. 

First, I have some New Years cards for my friend Rachel.  These colors were just so nice together for me and I love the flower stamp in this set, with the blue it reminds me of a Forget-Me-Not.  Rachel is easy to make stuff for, beacause she just lets me do what I want, creative license!  Thanks Rach!  You'll note I used the same embossing folder (Elegant Lines) that I used on my last card, this is another item I can't seem to get enough of. 

Next is an Occassions Box for another friend's mom.  This box is bigger than the Birthday Boxes and can hold full cards.  Inside are 7 card categories picked out by Carissa (my friend) ranging from birthday to anniversary and a cooresponding card filed in the section.  The main Designer Series Paper and color scheme were also picked by Carissa.  Now you'll note that "forget-me-not" flower again, it works with the motif and the colors and from that I was inspired to call this "Shirley's Forget-Me-Not Box".  So fun, I really enjoyed making this!  What's more is that I get to submit this to Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 62.  My colors aren't exact, but very close.  I always love to play along with Stac when I get the chance, her challenges are so fun!

Thanks friends, hope you enjoy as well.  Happy New Year!
