Matchbox Swap at Craftmad


Morning all, today I have a decorated matchbox to share with you.  This is our swap this month over at Craftmad for the Card Section.  We had to decorate an ordinary 'Redhead' matchbox or make our own and cram it full of crafting goodies to send off to our partner.  Check out all the swaps in the Craftmad album here.

I rummaged through my scraps of paper and found the metallic silver paper and then a strip of the purple glitter paper.  The glittered green stem is also a strip from a piece of patterned paper.  The lovely flower I received in a swap from Craftmad a few years ago.  See everything does eventually find a home.  Not sure where the butterfly came from but I think she finishes the box off nicely.

I filled the box with lots of tiny buttons, brads, and paper punched shapes.

My arm is improving more each day and yesterday I went out and bought some Arnica Cream...thanks to Sharon's suggestion.  I think this is helping big time.  So thanks so much for the tip Sharon.
Now I feel like I am coming down with my daughters head cold.  So nice of her to share. :-)
I will beat that though....vitamins to the rescue.


Good news ..... Jane was so lovely in sharing this award with me.
Thanks a lot Jane for thinking of me.  If you have the time please visit Jane's blog as she has so many pretty cards.
