Unicorns and Magic

Good morning!
Well it's warmed up a little here, the ice and snow have disappeared and the cats have been out and about.

 I've been working on projects for my sweet group and I thought I'd just share the Mother's Day gift that they will be assembling this week





I hand cut 24 boxes with front and backs... The little unicorn face was done on my computer... Firstly, I shaded in for some cheeks and found a picture of eyelashes on the web... Using photoshop I was able to take out the background of the eyelashes and place them over the cheeks. It worked really well and I just then printed them all out.
The ears, horn and leaves were all cut  on my Cameo. Inside the box are some pretty foiled chocolate hearts.

They will aslo be making a little card to go with this, really simple for them to make


Now I just have to come up with something for next week...

I'm back at physio later today, it's going to take a long while before I'm fully fit. My body has to realign now my spine has been screwed into place and the internal healing will take months so I am still experiencing a fair it of discomfort from time to time... Still I'm so grateful to the skill of the surgeon for all he has done... In case you are wondering... Below is how my spine now looks... With a new 'disc' made from my own bone, scews and a cage too. Magic!

Have a wonderful day

Awwwww...what a sweet, sweet little box Ros!! I LOVE those eyelashes!! The card is perfect to go with it too...there are going to be some happy mom's out there!! Glad to hear you're doing better, but remember that it usually takes a good 6 months for surgeries to totally heal...you'll get there!! :0)

Hi Ros, after a long break from my blog I am catching up! the boxes are Super, The face looks amazing!!! Love it, your card is equally great.
I had no idea you had undergone Surgery, I do hope you continue to do well and are soon pain free, We have a lot to thank these clever people for!
Had a rough year with hubby's health and we are more than grateful for them.
Take Care Ros xxxx

It does seem like magic! I'm continuing to send lots of positive energy your way for healing & relief of pain, my dear friend! Totally adorable candy box--you are so, so clever! I love the card--may have to CASE it! Love & hugs, Greta

Oh, how sweet! Your unicorn box is simply adorable, Ros! I'm sure it will be a big hit for Mother's Day...how fun! And, the card with flowers and gems is perfect with the pretty patterned papers! I hope you keep improved with your back! I can understand it will take time and gentle care. I can relate having had back surgery many years ago. You just hang in there and do your best! In the meantime, creativity brings lots of smiles! Love your work, Ros! Hugs!!

Whaaat??? Oh, my word, that box is so CUTE! My mind is boggled at your cleverness in creating the design and putting it all together. The blush under the eyelashes just seals the deal. Love it! And such a darling, fun card to go with it. Your group is so lucky to have you. They must have a blast! This is such a huge weekly task, but you pull it off beautifully. Yikes, it's no wonder your back will take some time to heal. That's a lot of magic in there!

Surgeons can do wonderful things, but I wish they could do it without the recovery pain and time! Your unicorn and flower card projects will be such a hit! Those eyelashes are fantastic!!

Very lovely project Ros! The leashes look so real, I thought you have too many of those fake leashes that need to get rid of (wink.. wink...)
Wishing the pain go away soon, big hug!!!!

Tracy said...

I am totally drooling over your box. They are going to love making these. You're so clever Ros. Isn't modern medicine amazing. Slow and steady on the healing my friend. :-)

Marina said...

Wonderful projects for your club and all that hard work...well done you x Hope Physio went OK and not too painful? Remember it's going to take months x

Beautiful, fun and creative gift box and card, Ros. I know you have much more healing for your remodeled spine, but with all the stamping you have been doing..it must be much better than all the pain before surgery. PT is so necessary for your healing. Painful at times, but so worth it. TFS your projects and photo of all your amazing and interesting hardware. Hugs..
