Thank you Karen

A big thank you to Karen Lister who is a demo in Dunedin.
The weekend of the Dunedin Regionals, the whole family went to Dunedin (we lived there for 14 years), and it had been 18 months since we had been south to visit.
So before regionals I phoned Karen, who is a cyber friend through our blogs but we had never met before.
I asked Karen if she could give me a ride out the airport where the regional was held, which is 30 minute drive so DH could have the car for the day.
She was so kind and gave me a lift and picked up 2 ladies up in Mosgiel, a friend of Karen's and Megan McDonald. Megan is another demo whose blog I had visited. It was so nice to meet people that I had visited their blogs before.
Here is the thank you gift I made Karen.
This is a cute wee box, that I found on Anna Sutherland blog here. It's so cute and she has a link to a tutorial.
I have used the Owl Punch, the thank you is from 'Just Believe' Stamp Set.
Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise and Island Oasis DSP colour combo.
Here's whats inside.
I made Karen an Owl Broach, and of course no gift is complete without chocolates.


  1. Lucky Karen!! How cute is this box?!! I have to do a workshop on boxes, and this fits my needs perfectly. Thanks for the link too Helen :-)

  2. What a lovely gift Helen.Might have to make one too.

  3. Delightful gift Helen. I have had this tute in my crypt for a bit and not given it the airing it deserves!! Love all the owls. So very well done. ooxx
