Mothers day gifts

Good Evening Ladies I hope you are all well. Sorry I have been so bad at visiting everyones blogs revently, I have started in a new position at work and have been really busy so haven't had much time to log on.
I wanted to show you these two boxes I made for my mum and Karls mum for mothers day, I made some white chocolate and cranberry fudge to put in them and also added some roses chocolates :)

This is the first one, they were both made using the 'for keep sake' box by Lauren Meader, I love her templates they are so easy to work with and go so well with the score pal too. The papers were given to me by a friend aren't they beautiful. I won the flowers on the card in a blog candy and the other ones are from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated.

This is the second box, using the same paper just a slightly different colour. I have shown this one with the card inside the box. I made it to fit just inside the front window. The image below shows the other side of the box. You can see the fudge and chocolates inside, I put these inside a clear bag (the ones you use to put cards in).

I am entering these in to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which has a theme of 'anything goes' and also the Cupcake craft challenge where the them is Flower power.

I hope all of the mothers reading this have a wonderful mothers day tommorrow xx hugs to you all xx

Hi Amanda,
This will make a fabulous gift for Mother's Day and I'm sure they will both appreciate the work that went into creating them. Fudge looks yummy.
