Crafty Monkeys, One Stop & ABC Challenges

Here are some pics of what we got up to yesterday, and it's just perfect for entering into the Crafty Monkeys challenge. The kids made coconut ice mice, and bryony made this card with cupcakes - both for their Nan's birthday (today).

I've made this altered tea box, and I guess it could be entered into the ABC Challenge because once I had the box painted, it didn't actually take long to put the papers and die cut letters and punched flowers on! Hope it counts, even though it's not a card!!!
Ooh - just realised it fits in with the One Stop Craft Challenge which this week is Pretty Petals - check out their blog for more info!
Oh, I nearly forgot - I'm really pleased with my first ever attempt at making truffles! And they taste GORGEOUS!!! yum, we, I mean my mum, will enjoy these later!!!
