Square cards & boxes . . .

A couple of weeks ago, I entered into the challenge over at Joan's Gardens to make a square card with a matching box ... you can see that entry HERE if you'd like.  While attending a Creative Memories get together at my daughter's last week, a friend of hers (who buys my cards) asked me to bring a few along, which I did.  And, I also took along my square card w/matching box to show her and she ordered THREE in different colors.

So, today I got busy  (it is World Card Making Day ya know!)  and before I deliver them to her, I thought you  might like to have a peek.  I also linked that particular challenge to Joan's Gardens name in case you'd like to check it out and get the dimensions for yourself.  Here ya go ...

I am so thrilled with how these came together and can't wait to see what my friend, Sandy Mashburn thinks of them!!  I think she'll be pleased!  Do you have a favorite??  I think the Black & White is mine ... it looks so elegant!  Maybe I put together a few for an upcoming craft show ... Black & White with a wedding theme ... and maybe a few for the holidays!  Hmmm ...

Here's a peek at the inside ... they are all the same ... 
just changed the coordinating designer papers to match.

Well, I can smell the Scalloped Potatoes ... guess dinner is ready!  Hope you enjoyed these creations and I look forward to hearing your comments!  Have a wonderful remainder of your weekend!!

Hugs,
Darlene

Ooops ... forgot to mention ... those items used that are in BOLD print were purchased at Joan's Gardens!
