Friends Like You....



Welcome to another Digital Tuesday challenge!

Lora is our hostess this week...and this week she challenged us to make

"Anything But A Card"
This can be a bag or a box, a scrapbook page, an ATC etc. Anything you like as long as it's not a card.

We have another great new sponsor this week

Some Odd Girl

Be sure to check out their store for some fun and unique images!

The winner gets to choose 3 images of their choice!!
Click HERE to read the guidelines and join in the fun!!

I chose to make a little gift box for my 3d project. I love these little magnetic snap boxes from Creative Imaginations!

My designer paper and images are new digital images from Studio 313 Exclusive Creations! It is so much fun to be able to size and print the designs to match your project! I used the Best Friend in the World kit that is found under Characters and People in the store. I printed the designer paper off at the 3x5 photo size. I sized each visible side of the box and then distressed the edges with a sanding block to soften it up. Pulled some various flowers, a making memories brad and a vintage button to dress up my box a bit. Inside I punched several flowers from another coordinating pattern from the set. I matted them on Chocolate Truffle cardstock for a fun and thrifty embellishment!

I did make a card....I just had to, because that is what I do!! This is a pre-colored image as well...so it is a quick card to pull together. I chose and matted a sentiment and added another floral embellishment. A fun little way to let someone know what they mean to you!
