The Bomb and Sunflower!

Hello friends

I'm pleased to say no risk of the WW2 bomb in London today,
instead they brought it just a few miles from my home and detonated it!
We heard the 'boom' and was shocked just how loud it was.
I read somewhere that there is still many bombs under the streets of London
and fine if left undisturbed...!

Okay..back to craft!
Today's project is a gift box, it's a recycled box that I covered and decorated.
It features Create A Sunflower and the label shapes are Labels Thirty Eight.
Some time back I featured Create A Sunflower as Friday Die Day and there 
is a full tutorial here.

There is a new range of Create A Flower dies, just in time for Spring, they include:

and Peony

These are all available on the website (just click on the flower name) at a bargain price 
and previous Create A Flower dies are reduced too.
I will be doing tutorials on the new flowers soon, possibly videos if I enlist the 
help of Elliott (but he is rather engrossed in his new computer!)

And talking of Spring and flowers, yesterday when walking Bella I discovered so many 
bees buzzing about.  I'm so pleased Spring is here.

Also, yesterday's post showed Bella napping and I received a few enquiries
regarding my flowery bedding - it comes from Ikea and is called Rosali.

Take care friends and stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.

Hi Christine. Glad that the bomb was safely detonated but I think it makes us all stop and think of all that our families and friends went through back in the wars!
I love your package and Sunflower, and I will be looking at the Hydrangea dies as I think they are beautiful.
Thank you for the bedding advice, another thing I will be looking at, it is so pretty.
Have a good day, with more signs of spring : ) Take care. x

Hi christine
Love the box,I love sunflowers. Ithink this box would make anyone happy just to look at it never mind the contents.
Glad the bomb was dealt with OK,in my part of the country the trawlers often bring one up in their nets,we had a large one only a few weeks ago which was exploded by the army on the beach.
Have a good day in the city
Love Linda in a very wet South Shields

Good Morning Christine,
Phew ! Glad the bomb was detonated safely, I can understand why they don't do it in a populated area but you would think that transporting it would be a logistical nightmare in itself!
Oh Christine your Sunflower box us just beautiful, that is a gift that keeps on giving, as you would keep that packaging forever!
I hope your London work day whizzes by!
Looking forward to FDD as always, I wonder what surprises you have instore for us tomorrow!

Hi Christine
I'm glad that the bomb was detonated safely. But fancy taking it all the way down to where you live. I'm sure there are wide open spaces I'm between London and Gravesend. Love todays box and the flowers that adorn the top.

Pleased to hear the bomb has been dealt with safely Christine
Love today's gift box. Must look at the tutorial and give it a try as I have the poppy which I must have a god at.
Thanks for the inspiration.

I heard 'they' had detonated the b**b at Cliffe on SE News and the irony did not escape me!
Your wrapping is delightful. Love the new flower dies. Peony is my favourite, but so many petals to assemble - I'm not sure if I'm up for that.

Jacquie said...

Gorgeous box Christine. Love the Sunflower.

My you think you have escaped all the who ha then they bring it near you to detonate it lol! That must have been dreadful.

Love all the new flowers

Love & hugs
