Good Evening my friends!
I must tell you "I AM EXHAUSTED"! I've been outside working all day ... I should sleep good tonight! LOL! BUT, before 'hitting the hay', I wanted to share with you the box I decorated for my girlfriend's Surprise 70th Birthday Party yesterday! And YES ... she was TOTALLY SURPRISED!!! It was AWESOME!
The box came from Michaels and I paid $2.99 for it. I wanted one a little larger so I would have room for at least 2 dozen cards and this one worked perfectly.
THEN ... though it was hard to cut into, I knew my friend would LOVE the Graphic45 'Secret Garden' design papers so that's what I chose to use for the covering on this box ... take a peek and tell me what you think . . .
Here are a few challenges I'd like to enter into:
City Crafter Challenge - Photo Inspiration
Everybody Art Challenge - Flowers
LEJ Designs - Die Cuts & Punches
Loves Rubberstamps - Anything But A Card
Sweet Stamps #118 - Sweet Cuts Dies (or Cheery Lynn Designs - see recipe below)
Through the Craftroom Doors - Anything Goes (May 12-27)
Top Tip Tuesday #101 - Make a clever box (TIP: when using ModPodge, pour some into a small paper plate to work from and seal the bottle to keep it from drying out quicker than necessary ... you can always add a little more or pour the excess back into the bottle/jar when done with your project.)
Digi Darla's Challenge #63 - 3D Creation
Make It Monday #141 - Anything Goes
Craft My Life - Anything But A Card/Layout
Well, that's it for me this evening. Like I said, I've been outside weeding, mulching, and mowing ALL DAY and I am tired! Have a fabulous week my friends!
