Birthday box card

Hi guys,

How is everyone doing.. Can you believe it that half the year is already gone.. Time flies really... I have been busy with work lately so my blog is relatively quiet.. Doesn't mean I haven't been crafting for I have been crafting non-stop...It's amazing to just be able to channelize your energy into creative output...

This birthday card is for a VERY special friend.. The one person with whom I may not talk everyday or even every week.. But whenever we do speak it's like the gaps weren't there ever....

I won't ramble much.. Just showing you the pics at one go.. In essence it follows the same pattern as my last box card because I was short of time and I really did not have time to go over the top with it.. I made this card in 4 hours and it was a huge ask considering the heat has been absolutely killer and drains me even while am working in my room with the air conditioner on...Pheww...!!

tweety on the lid.. I LOVE tweety...

die cuts on all 4 sides for writing

open view... I still love the tweety....

tags on opposite pockets

die cuts on one wall...

It is a PINK card yet again I know.. But I just cannot help it.. I have caught an unusual fascination for shades of pink... :D

Simple and nothing fancy.. Lots of cutting and all though.. :D
