So much for my promise to share my last spice cake creation on Tuesday! I was ready to go but unfortunately we lost our phone and internet connection which was only fixed yesterday. This predicament has made me realise that I am, absolutely, no question about it, addicted to blogging and surfing! I have been the biggest cranky pants during the past few days.
Anyway…I’m back and raring to go. Before I share my last spice cake creation, I want to share these gorgeous little gift boxes I made today for the current, too cute to resist, Just Add Ink Challenge. I found inspiration from every element of this photo, from the colours, the bling, the handbags, and of course, the company…Tiffany’s. Don’t you think that a little item from Tiffany’s would fit perfectly in one of these? And better yet…they not only make gorgeous gift boxes for that someone special, they are also beautiful, handmade decorations for the Christmas tree.
And here is the inspirational photo

Now to my last Spice Cake project. I love these little bottles from IKEA – such good value and they make great little gifts. This one will eventually have chocolates in it. They would have been in the bottle for the photo but my dear husband was unable to resist the chocolates that I purchased. So much for trying to be organised!

Whilst we are on the subject of gift ideas. I now have gift vouchers available and the best thing about gift vouchers is that from 24 January – 31 March 2012, Stampin’ Up! start the best and biggest promotion of the year…SALE-A-BRATION! The best thing about SALE-A-BRATION is that for every $100 you spend you get a fabulous gift and I can tell you now the gifts are simply gorgeous. What better way to spend your Chrissy voucher!
