***We also have TWO giveaways going on .. so if you didn't get the goodie bag I gave way this week... you will want just over for a chance at these!

***Marisas blog for a $30 gift certificate from Crafty Secrets
and
***Sandy (owner of Crafty Secrets ) is doing a fantastic "Bird themed" giveaway on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog!

I decided to make an altered box using one of the images and chipboard pieces from the Best Buds Postcard kits.

Box ... $3.99 at Hobby Lobby

Here's how I used the postcard and image on the top of the box.


There are so many different ways that these can be used. You can check out the Crafty Secrets gallery HERE , for lots of creative ideas.

I brought this unfinished wood and glass box at Lobby Hobby a while back from $3.99. I covered the wood with paint and glimmer Mist (Cream paint and Vintage Pink and Olive Green Glimmer mist) Inked edges with Chestnut Roan colored Cat Eye ink from Colorbox (Clearsnap).
** Here is the inside of the box....

Papers from Crafty Secrets "Radiant" Paper Pad and Chipboard corners also from Crafty Secrets. Sweet Chips

We have a new addition to our team, so we are excited to have her playing long on her first Challenge.

Love the box! I am cropping Friday and taking the sketch with me and will challenge all the girls to do one. You should come Friday.

Thanks for the papers today. I think the black I will use for Liz's graduation announcements.

Also I counted and you gave me one more of the post card kits than you had written on the sheet. Do I pay you or Sandy for the extra one?
