A Box of Tricks

"I'd like you to feature a box, or something box-shaped on your projects - it could be a 3D project, decorated box, box shaped embellishments...once you start thinking outside the box (!) you can come up with some fun ideas!"

That is the theme for this week Daring Cardmakers dare
A Box of Tricks
set up by very talented Fran

Rule of Chocolate Easter Bunny :

If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

The Ribbon Reel Challenge # 24

My other card is for The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog.
Debbie set up fabulous theme for the challenge :

Pretty as Posey

...and ask that you create a card /project using PINK, YELLOW, AQUA & NEUTRALS WITH FLOWERS & RIBBONS

Here is my card:

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

"Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it's life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

"You will simply call her, 'Mum.' "

I'd like you to create a card featuring a tessellating pattern. You can probably remember doing tessellation in math class at school right? Basically all you're doing is making a pretty pattern with shapes that fit together perfectly on all sides, like tiling.
