Happy Birthday Box & Card

Hello & Happy Saturday!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
It's dreary & rainy here as it's been most of this past week with more rain coming half of this coming week. I won't complain since we really need it. I am happy to report though that my lilac bush is in bloom and smelling so good! It's only taken 4 years for it to get more than one bloom! 

So, I had a chance to sneak off to my craft room Friday and play a bit. I made this little Happy Birthday card & box as a treat for a dear friend. Her birthday was last Monday. Yes, i'm a bit late.

My card is a 3 X 3 so it will fit inside the box.

The box is made from these Gift Card Enclosures that happen to be retired. I've had these for a year or so and totally forgot I had them till I cleaned a drawer out and found them. I took one and with my Simply Score Board I scored on 3 of the half moon panels at 1/2 in  from the original scored line and that creates the box. I adhered it and then added my belly band and decorated it. I think there pretty neat all decorated.

In my box I added a pack of this birthday cake sugar free gum that I found at the store. I will add something else before I give it to the birthday girl next weekend. I always try to make alittle something for her. Happy Belated Birthday, Emily!! 

Happy Birthday Card & Box:

Stamps: Party Pants SAB '16
Ink: Basic Black Archival
Cardstock: Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, It's My Party DSP
Accessories: Circle & Scallop Circle Punches, Balloon Punch, White Baker's Twine, Mint Macaron Lace Ribbon, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Liquid Tombow

Before I close I want to give an update on my hubby and his progress.
He had a doctor appointment this past Tuesday. All is healing nicely and he is bothered with the heal which is normal for this type of procedure.  He is to continue walking as much as he can tolerate it and when resting he is to keep his foot elevated and iced but swelling hasn't been too much of an issue. This coming week the stitches will come out and it could be a few more weeks before he can return to work but so far so good!

That is all I have for today!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
