 Hello everyone,

It is a lot cooler today and I'm thankful for that as the Autumn weather, like Spring, is unpredictable and yesterday we shot up to 30oC - 90F I did not know where to put myself as I had let my guard down ready for it was a craft room day, not productive in card making but lots of prep..

Today I'm sharing a project I made the other is for a challenge at Gecko Galz - Secret Garden..

I chose my picture to use and glued it onto a piece of card stock, scored and folded in the ends..

Then die cut wood grain papers into a circle...

Glued it onto the flaps..and trimmed.

Added spellbinders hinges [die cuts]

Another blast from the past was this Martha Stewart leaf punch..

Then added hanging vines over the door..

And some brad door knobs..

an ephemera butterfly..

Open the doors and all the punched flowers and leaves on the inside..

It stands up too and another ephemera butterfly inside..

Challenges to enter....

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..
