Pooh Card in a Box

What a crazy last few weeks! I had 2 shows and got real sick with the flu right smack in the middle of them! Needless to say I am way behind on all my crafting:(  I spent this last week working on this card for my sister's birthday. Of course it is late but I'm hoping the "better late than never" saves me on this! We plan on doing a get together with my mom so I can give it to her then.  

So I made yet another card in a box (I'm loving these!) She is a big fan of Winnie the Pooh so I chose that for my theme. The Pooh and honey pot die cuts are from the Pooh and Friends Cricut Cartridge.  The papers and cardstock are all from my scraps box so I have no memory of where they came from.  The cute little bees and daisies are from Jolees. I found those on sale a while back and just knew I would make something with them for my sis.  

I used the plastic from the Cricut cartridge outer shell to prop up those bees.  The banner and fancy butterfly square cuts are from the Elegant Edges Cartridge. I used stamps from Pink By Design, My Pink Stamper and Joy's Life. 

I love the look of Spring as we are definitely there here in So. California. My allergies have kicked in on top of what's left of my cold. 

I didn't go crazy with inserts this time and the card should fit in my leftover envelopes from my Costco Christmas Cards.  I haven't made the A2 size card yet and I do really like these bigger ones. But I plan on making the smaller ones soon.

Now I am off to work on some more projects for my Daughter's birthday party and just maybe if I'm successful I will get them posted. I'm always bummed when I don't have time to photograph them and get them on my blog. I love the bloggy world of paper crafting and was lucky enough to win some DCWV stacks from the blog Hiding in My Craft Room. I just got them in the mail today and can't wait to use them :) 

I will participate in the following challenges:
