Hey there ladies and gents, here we are with yet another fabulous challenge on the First day of this brand new week....it is Monday so come on over to the 



Offcourse our Regular sponsor is Simon Says Stamp

and again they offer a grand prize to one lucky winner, so check back next Wednesday maybe you are the one...... 
Isn't it just very generous of the Simon Says Stamp Superstore???


So oke, here we go....this week the new theme is
Show us Your Wings.....

And this is what I made


When I heard the theme for this weeks project was wings, I was thinking about the birds....bluebirds turning vintage....so I made an Autumn Memory Box with bluebirds on top. This little box would be just great for my Mom's birthday next Thursday...I worked with the fabulous stamp set from Artistic Outpost and the stamps from Hero Arts Silhouette Grass, Of course, I could not leave the Crackle Accents alone and just had to use it on the birds....



I played with the box on the outside and even stamped the inside of the box and embossed it with copper embossing powder. Everything was distressed with Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge and Forest Moss.



This is one of the borders....I played with the Hero Arts Stamp with different colors of Distress inks....and it is a lot of fun to do.....


This picci is just to show you what you can do with the different sides of a box.....I colored the lace with 2 distress inks....such as Forest Moss and the Rusty Hinge...and it gives you this look on what used to be white Lace......


Here is a button that I found in my Mom's knittingcase....and the little key was found in my stash.....added a few pins and a shiny thingy......I think it looks nice.....



And here is my finished Autumn Memories Box ....I hope you will like it and I hope that my Mom will like it too.....
