FTTC119, CR84FN29 Happy Anniversary...and some BLOG CANDY!!!

Happy Tuesday again everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend? We sure did...we had so much fun at Rebecca's party. We took her and her friends *bowling* and I played a round of *laser tack*. Becca and I we were so exhausted we had to take a three hour nap...LOL! It was also our boxer *Luke's* birthday...our puppy turned 3 yrs on Sunday. I have some BLOG CANDY  waiting at the end of my post so make sure to play along!!!

First let me tell you a little bit about today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC119. Dee Jackson is our host and she challenged us to create a *Box or Bag* or simply decorate a pre-made one! Fairly easy...hope you'll come and play along!?!?

Here is my idea.....



My box was created with the SU Bigz L Petal Cone Die. I used the brand spankin' new Flourishes
Country Charm Labels Set and the sentiment is from the brand spankin' new Wedded Bliss Set. Both images were inked in SU Crumb Cake. The DP is from the PTI Guide Lines Collection. The rest of my box was embellished with some Prima Flowers, some White Pearls, Button, Cotton Lace and some matching PTI Satin Ribbon. Of course I can not forget to mention that my color inspiration came from Mona's beautiful color combo CR84FN29.


Please make sure to check out my team mates beautiful ideas ~ Cindy, Maki, Dee, Betty, Tammy and our sweet May Guest Designer Brenda O'Rear aka *Benzi*!!!

Now onto the fun part...some BLOG CANDY!!!  Jan Marie, the owner of  Flourishes graciously gave us some extra Stamp Sets from the brand spankin' new May Release...YEAH!!! You can win the Country Charm Label Set and the Wedded Bliss Set (using both Set's on my box today) by simply answering one simple question.....*HOW MUCH DO YOU THINK OUR BOXER PUPPY "LUKE" WEIGHT AT HIS LAST VET APPOINTMENT ON SATURDAY???* Okay, he is not a puppy anymore.....he is
3 years old now..!!! If two or more participants comes close to the correct weight my daughter Rebecca will  draw the final winner and I will announce the lucky winner next Tuesday with my next Flourishes project!!! Have fun playing...!!!!

As always, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great week...hugs ~Silke~

Gorgeous! I love the label and sentiment stamp. Beautiful embellishments (especially the flowers). Our neighbors behind us have a female american boxer who is very sweet. I think she must weigh close to 70 lbs, so I'm going to guess 68.5 lbs for Luke.

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful. I just love the box you made - but, then, I love everything you make. I love your style.
As for how much your boxer weighs, that's tough. We have a 3 yr old boxer, too, but he's tall and lean and boxers can vary sooo much. But, I'm going to go with 65 lbs.

Lin said...

Silke, your project is amazing - what a treat! My first thought for the weight of your boxer "baby" was 64 lbs, and I'm sticking with it!

Basement Stamper said...

Silke, I love this, the purples and the floral with the sentiment are perfect. I'm going to guess that Luke weighs about 73 lbs as I'm guessing he's gained some weight since last year's appt :-)

Sara Mac said...

Silke this project is stunning! The guidelines paper is the perfect choice for the box.

I'm going to guess that Luke weighed 72 lbs at his appointment.
