Good afternoon!   I'm at work right now. I was called in because one of my co-worker's Mother passed away. So sad, and right here before Mother's Day.  I lost my MoM 20 years ago but still think about and miss her.  Cherish your MoM while you have her. : )

This week's challenge with +LaDenna Lawrence was to make at least 5 greeting cards and to decorate a little balsa wood box we both had.

I had already made a Mother's Day card for a dear friend of mine for the card challenge last month.  But I had seen these adorable owl cards on Pinterest and wanted to make them.  They are so cute! 
 Here is the link to the instructions if you want to give them a go.  Cosmo Cricket Blog

These are graduation money/gift holder cards. LaDenna has 2 graduating this year so they will go to them. 

Here's the link and instructions. 

This is a box card that I had been wanting to try. It lies flat and opens to make a box for a little surprise.

I made my friend a box of all-occasion cards for Mother's Day.

Lastly, is the little balsa wood box.  I had  new paper I wanted to use so I decoupaged the box with it.  I made tags to go inside that the recipient can put pics on. 

 Our new challenge is to use these Koolaid boxes.  
The reveal will be next Wednesday night at 8p.m. CST over at PJs TREASURES.

So far, I am at a total loss on this one-clueless!  lol

It was a busy week with all this plus I listed some new dish cloths in my Etsy shop. One of them is shown on the upper left side of my page. Visit my shop to see many other colors.  I use these myself and love them!

Also!! I was given a Liebster Award by a fellow blogger!!! I will be posting all about it in a couple of days as I will be nominating some fellow bloggers!! Stay tuned!!
