A commission and Hels challenge

Hels challenge this week was for roses. So here I have decorated a pizza box. I found the tutorial on Splitcoast stampers . The rose is made from card. The leaves are from the papermania build a rose set stamped in olive green ink from stampin up.

The papers, ribbons and buttons are from the current goody bag from docrafts. I shared with my mum the whole goody bag and there is oodles!
Inside the box is a card commissioned by my workmate Barbara - I have a list of Barbaras commissions for the next few months as she has some special birthdays coming up in her family.

This one is an easel card for her niece Erin who is 5. Mum cut out erins name and the no 5 on her slice machine!

It is of course the beautiful Daisy stamp from Sugar nellie, coloured with promarkers and also using elements from the Papermania goody bag. the tab punch is from Stampin up.
Well this may be may last post till into next week as we have a busy weekend ahead. im working from 2-30 today till 3 tomorrow, a valentine meal Sat night then the same working hours Sun/ Mon - This is where I pay for having time off last weekend lol.
Hope you have a brilliant weekend x Janet
