An apple to say thank you

Hi everybody!!

Told you my mojo was back :). Between the mermaid notebook and this project I have actually already finished a third project with an adorable new Wee Stamps image that you are going to love for Copic Marker Europe, because YES they have asked me to stay on for six more months!! But you'll have to wait two more weeks for that project and in the meantime I have this little box to entertain you. I actually started coloring this image when my mojo was missing in action. I was planning to use it as decoration for a teacher gift but in the end decided to use an already colored image that I did during a workshop months ago instead. I think it's just perfect for a little thank you gift as well though and since my oldest is staying with my inlaws for a couple of nights I decided to fix them a little box with chocolates or something like that. The decorating has been done on the lit of the box:
The pretty image is by Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy and she is called An Apple for you. The pretty brown paper is by Basic Grey from the Kissing Booth line and the green paper is KaiserKraft, no idea which line though. The sentiment stamp is an oldie by Elzybells stamps, unfortunatelly no longer active... I know I have said it before but they had the best sentiments! The swirls around the image are also from a Whiff of Joy set named Christmas Swirls Collection but I think they can be used all year long :). Some lace and ribbon from stash, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a square doillie behind the whole thing :).
 A close up of the cute little image.
A side view of the box :).
And the little pieces that the image was made off. As alwasy, coloring was done with my Copic Markers.

Hope you like my little box of thanks :). I'll be giving it to my inlaws when I pick Dyanne up so hope they don't visit my blog in the meantime :).

Huggies and see you all soon!!
