Boxed in!

Yup that's right I am all about being boxed in this week! LOL. This week my fabulous team mate Ciska has chosen a great theme for our challenge over at Fab'n'Funky. This week we are all boxed in! Yes we were asked to make a box. I have been wanting to make one of these match box dressers for a long time, and thought this was the perfect time to finally tackle it! I tell you though! It took me some time to get it done!

Firstly it took me forever to find the match boxes. I know I could have just as easily made my own, but I need matches anyway! So when I finally found them, I was so excited I bought six, and then emptied the matches out of the boxes and began to decorate.

Here is a little tip though, when buying match boxes for this project, buy one extra box, so that when you empty all the boxes need for the project you will still have one box with a striking pad to light the 3000+ matches that you now have to store!!!! I did not and now have no where to light my 3000+ matches! Oops!!!

Ok well back to my little project of the week! Here is my match box dresser. All papers were from Basic Grey-Lemonade line. (All purchased Here) I also used some wonderful stamps from our sponsor this week, Stamp Fairy.

Here is a close up of the drawers. I used some stuff I found in the jewelery department. (sorry I don't know the real names,,) The "handle" is one of the long pins that you would make a string of beads on, and the part behind it, is I believe a separator of some sort.

 A side view. Showing off the easel card on top.

 Here is a close up of the images from our sponsor.

Well I guess that is all for now. I would love to hear what you think.

Colour Combo!

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all doing well! I have had a busy week. I was surprised to be able to get anything done!! I have been dealing with some not so fun health issues, and spent a good part of three days curled up in bed. Hopefully my test results will come in soon and we will know what is going on!!!!

On a happier side of things though, I did have some time to get crafty. This week Pat my lovely team mate over at Fab'n'Funky has chosen a wonderful challenge. This week we were challenged to use the colours Brown, Pink and Green!

Well I have to admit I almost forgot to use those specific colours, I was so excited to colour up my image from our sponsor Mazy Art.  She is called "Loti". I had so much fun colouring her in!!!

Here is the inside of the card. I made it with an insert for a gift card.

I was also busy making a cake for my daughter's Best Friend's Birthday! She was having a Spring/Easter themed party.

Here is what her cake looked like.

Anize was super excited, because she got to sculpt the little bunny jumping into the eggs!

Well I hope that you had fun visiting me today. And I hope I get to see your creations over at Fab'n'Funky!

Add a sentiment

Good morning everyone. This week it was Vicky's turn to choose out theme over at Fab'n'Funky, and she chose.....Add a sentiment.  I loved this theme, simply because for me it was super simple. I rarely make a card that does not have a sentiment on it!

So without further ado here is my card using one of the images from Digi Darla(Hooded raincoat kitty) our sponsor for this week. Isn't this little kitty just the cutest. Makes me long for Spring even more, seeing her all dressed up in her cute little raincoat! I went with the monochromatic scheme this week to bring out the colours in the image. I rather like the finished effect.

Isn't she adorable.

Thank you for stopping by again this week. I hope you will join us this week aver at Fab'n'funky and post your creations. We love to seeing what you come up!


Cute card Thursday- Spring Fever
Diva's- put some pink on it!
