A veek of Carol-link

Da! My Russian is very veak. [Who am I kidding? It is non-existent but I loved the pun on carolling.]

Gee, I can't quite believe that it has been a week since I posted the first challenge from the June INKlings cybercrop hosted by INKantationer Carol. The last of the three challenges, that she had set, was to make a box. I based mine on a pattern that she referenced from Kelly Lunceford. But, since I was too lazy to convert from inches to centimetres and too cheap to cut up a brand new piece of A4 cardstock, I used a couple of large offcuts and modified to suit the size of the scraps. As they say, "Laziness is the mother of invention"...or was that "father"? ... or maybe "necessity"? Da! Vatever!

The pristine white flower is from a Stampin' Up! Pretties Kit and a Chocolate Chip scallop was embossed using a Goosebumpz Flourish die for the corner. Love note envelopes fit perfectly in the box, which is why I've used the same design for eScaping. спасибо Comrade Carol!

Wow, that's beautiful (or be-yooot-i-ful). The design itself is so clever, isn't it? And I really like Old Olive - she sounds drab but is very nice in real life!

Spasíbo, Belle! Yes, these crafty women and their clever tutorials! What would we do without them?! I really like Old Olive too - she is a lot richer than her name implies.

You're too funny Lin Mei! Good Ol' Olive is a great colour isn't it?

Pryvet Carol! This Russian thing is more insidious than I thought ... after bicycling with Hubby, I bought sweets for the first time in AGES - only just realised that they are RED skins. *shock* I suppose it is a long bow to draw since the Soviet Union is no longer.
