Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. The trouble is they are going by much too fast for me. I would like them to slow down a bit. Well enough of that. This weeks challenge at Peachy Keen is to do anything you want in 3D and the theme is Weather. I decided to do a Shadow Box card that I saw on Splitcoast Stampers. I had this in my favorites to do for a long time and never did it. I thought this is the perfect opportunity to try it. So here goes.
It's a A2 sz. Card (4.25" x 5.5"). I used Bazzill cs for the back and pattern cs from DCWV Citrus Stack for the front. I die cut the middle of the front with a Spellbinders Die. Scored the sides at 1/2" and 1". I cut the grass from Plantin Schoolbook at 1.5". The boy and umbrella and accessoried were from Everday Paper Dolls and cut at 2". The clouds and rain are from Create a Critter and also cut at
2". I stamped the boys face with PK Stamp Everyday faces. I embossed the clouds and the grass with Swiss Dots. I tied a bow with bakers twine and added some buttons to each of the corners. Sentiment is from the computer.
Hope you like my 3D Weather card and if you like please leave a comment.

Peachy Keen is having a Challenge this week and the theme is to make anything with an empty toilet paper roll. It was kinda of hard challenge for me, since I couldn't think of anything to do with the paper roll. So I decided to make a treat pillow box since I have made this once before.
I covered the roll with paper from Paper Tray Ink and push in the sides to form the pillow shape. Added ribbon from my stash. I stamped the angel from the PK January Stamp of the Month Club, colored her with my copics and added diamond stickles to her wings and halo. I cut the scallop and red heart from Doodlecharms, added faux stitching and stamp Love from the same set and heat imbossed it. There you have it.
Thanks for looking and leaving a message.

Here is my card that I'm entering for the Peachy Keen Challenge. The only requirement is that it has a pocket. I made this flower pot note card. The note goes inside the flower pot and that's my pocket.
I cut a piece of Craft Cardstock 9 x 3.50" and scored at 2" and 5.50". Fold mountain and valley style. I used a MS Punch on the edge of the flower pot and I also sponged the sides of the pot with distressed ink. I added Lt. Purple CS and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder and tied a ribbon around the top of the pot.
The insert is a piece of Dk. Purple CS that measures 4.50" x 2.50" and I cut a piece of marble purple paper a little smaller and attached it to the Dk. Purple CS (this is where you write your note). I stamped the PK flower face stamp and colored it with my copics. I cut some brances with a MS Punch and attached it all to the insert. Also added three purple pearls to the bottom of the flower pot.
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment, I love reading them.
