...Another Peek & Blog Candy


Here's another peek at the other 3X3 card boxes I've made for craft shows. The left one is Really Rust and Wild Wasabi with some of the new Apple Cider Designer Paper. The center is Yoyo Yellow, Wild Wasabi, and Purely Pomegranate. I used a punch on the white cardstock so colored dots could peek through. Then the right is Purely Pomegranate, River Rock , and Always Artichoke with the new Holiday Harmony Designer Paper. I made six cards for each box and included the little 3X3 envelopes.





Here is the "Friend" box and its contents.














And this one is the "Thank You" box with all of its cards! The "Christmas" box is in the post below.










I am getting close to 5,000 hits! WOOHOO...I can't believe it! I wanted to offer some blog candy as a thank you to all of the wonderful people that have stopped in over the last few months. The rules are simple...leave me a comment at this post, and when my counter hits 5K I will select a random winner. Please number your comment at the end (entry #?). In your comment(s) let me know what you like about my blog, and what else you would like to see. ONE ENTRY PER PERSON. The loot for this drawing will be four (4) of the 6X6 BasicGrey paper pads. I have several to choose from, but the choice is yours. So when I select a winner I will get your information, and then I will send you a list of pads from which to choose. GOOD LUCK!
***I WILL DRAW FOR A WINNER OF THE BLOG CANDY AT MIDNIGHT 9-14-07***
