Wish you were here!

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you have all had a wonderful day.  Both my parents are well and it was lovely spending some time with them today.  I even managed to stay dry too.  We have just had thunder and lightening and a deluge of rain, seems to have stopped at the moment.

Tonight I am sharing a card and a box I have made for a couple of challenges over on Facebook group Mad Crafter's Giggle.  The card is for the Tic, Tac Toe and the box is for the one word challenge.

I have made this box using Centura pearlescent card and my Hougie board.
The paper and embellishments are from my stash


1. A5 Kraft Card
2. 1st layer is mink pearlescent card which I have faux stitched with a black Micron pen.
3. 3rd layer is paper from Papermania called Bookprint which I have distressed with Vintage Photo I have added an Eiffel tower charm with a brad.
4. The Postcard is from Kraftyhands Man about Town matted onto brown card and again I have added faux stitching.
5. I stamped the vintage car which is from Visible Image with my Glue Pad and added Gilding Flakes.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
