Well Hello All!!!! I know I've been missing for awhile. LIFE!! Sometimes it's really annoying. Oh well, it seems to be calming down for a second. So, I finally got a chance to actually do something that I wanted to do, and it was the house mouse challenge for this week-anything but a card. If you haven't checked this out, you really should. They are alot of fun. This is only the second one I've been able to participate in, but I love it. Here is the link. Ok, so I really had to think about this one, because I haven't made many "other" things. I was looking through my stash of stuff and found these gable boxes, so I thought I'd try these. I've had these since probably my son was born-OMG-way too long to have things in my stash without using them. I'm really bad about buying things and not using them. My son is 9 by the way. So I started by painting the box, it was white. I just used Joann's brand paint in Real Green. The paper I used is from the DCWV christmas stack from last year. Cardstock is DCWV-Red. The stamp is House Mouse "Having a Ball", I colored with prismacolor pencils, and put some stickles in crystal on the hat, and around the bottom. I really like the way it turned out. OH yeah, I did use a coat of glitter paint over the green. I just found that at Michael's. So, what do you think? Love hearing from you guys. I really will try to post more this week.
