Breast cancer fund raiser

Tomorrow they are having a fund raising 'dress down' pink day where DH works to raise money for the breast cancer campaign. I made the pink phone charm the other day and decided last night that I would do something else for them to use as a raffle prize too so came up with the idea of making five cards, with a pink theme, and boxing them. In theory it was a brilliant idea, in practise it wasn't so good as I finally got to photograph them at 1.40 this morning!!! I am pleased with the way they turned out though (apart from the pants photos LOL)

The box is stood up in the middle at the back

and here you can see the cards in the box! All the images used are from Pink Petticoat, papers are assorted pieces from my 'left overs' box along with various pieces of ribbon, flowers etc. I had to get them finished last night so he could take them into work today.

My last piece of work to show tonight is a gift card wallet which was commissioned by my friend's son. He's got his girlfriend tickets to go and see the Mighty Boosh (she thought they were all sold out!)

I'm quite pleased with my little self too as it turns out that her favourite colour is blue! I never thought to ask when the card was ordered although I usually do.
Right, it's past my bedtime now :) I shall be back tomorrow with more challenges.
Sleep tight and thanks for looking.
