More details can be found on the

You are in for a treat as you hop around and visit my lovely teamies and see the beautiful creations they have made, don't forget to leave them a comment to be in with a chance of winning some of the gorgeous candy on offer.
If you've arrived here from our lovely
LORI'S BLOG
you are on the right track, if not pop back to the challenge blog & find the blog hop order there

I decided to make a card & decorate a box holding a gift for the little lady expected in our family in a few weeks time.
Ingredients -
Images - sitting baby Tingla, teddy, recipe card & sentiment, all Magnolia
Medium - Copics, Papers - Magnolia, Flowers - Magnolia, Kort & Godt, Melissa Frances & Wild Orchid, Pearls - Melissa Frances, string of pearls - Wild Orchid, Brad - American Crafts, Lace - The Ribbon Girl, Ribbon - May Arts, anything else from stash.
Tools - Magnolia Doo Hickey swirls, romantic lace, vintage mistletoe, Martha Stewart eyelet lace PATP, frond leaf punch & classic 3-in-1 butterfly punch (box)
The Copic colours I've used are -
Tingla - skin - E11, E00, E000, R20, E93, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes & hair ribbons - R85, R83, R81, booties & dummy - RV55, RV52, RV000
Teddy - E55, E53, E51, R20, E93 / RV00, RV52
Recipe card - C3, C1, C00, RV55, RV52
For the gift box I have again used the same Magnolia papers & sitting baby Tingla. I have sat her on a row of die cut Memory Box buttons & threaded Hemptique twine through them then added a Cousin nappy pin charm. The sentiment is a Paper Make-Up stamp which I've stamped on Magnolia's Dream Tag Doo Hickey.
 I'm entering my gift set in the following challenges -
Tilda's Town - anything goes,  Colour Me Creative Copic - anything goes, The Crafty Pad - bingo (bottom row, ribbon, flowers, pearls), Card Makin' Mamas - May flowers, Crafts 4 Eternity - wonderful wings, Fairy Tale - things with wings, Fussy & Fancy - new baby, Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes, Simply Create Too - feminine or  Mothers Day, Crafty Ribbons - flowers, Delightful Challenges - add ribbon, Hanna & Friends - anything but a card, Willow Sketchie - 3 different papers &/or sketch
 Before I sign off I thought I'd show you what is inside the box. Inside the little box is the absolutely gorgeous & super cute hand crocheted baby shoes made by my dear friend & super talented Tab
 I have some sweet stuff on offer for one of the blog hoppers who enters the challenge :)
