Anya/Ian Card and Crayon Box

Hi Friends!! Yesterday was my husband's birthday and I spent the day slaving away making a mini album to give to him as a gift. Oh gosh, it took me over 3 hours to create it. As much as I love mini albums, I don't like the fact that there's a lot of pages to work on. . .I finally was able to finish it in time to give it to him for his birthday. I still need to take photos of it so I'll post it tomorrow. I like how it turned out. I've never used so many Prima flowers on a project before! LOL! Because I was in a rush to finish it. . .the main design consisted of Primas. . .and I'm not kidding when I say I used a lot of them! LOL!

I was away from blog land all day. . .I barely looked at my computer. As a matter of fact, I avoided the computer because I knew if I went on, I wouldn't finish my mini album in time for my husband's Birthday dinner. I was finally able to get on the computer at 11:00 at night and did my typical blurfing.

Anyway, what does my mini album have to do with this Crayon Box and card I created? Absolutely nothing. It's just me off the subject of what this post suppose to be about. . .just me being me! LOL!!

I actually created this card over 2 weeks ago but I'm only posting it now. I had forgotten that I had uploaded it as a draft and never published it.

Okay, isn't Anya and Ian so adorable together? I love this image. The image is actually a digital image by The Greeting Farm!! They have such cute digital images as well as stamps so you have the best of both worlds!!

If you're interested in looking at another sample of the "Crayon Box" I created, CLICK HERE. The post has a link to the template so you can create the box yourself. The box can actually hold 3 non-bulky cards but in my case, because of the big flower, only one card can fit inside.

Oops, I didn't post the sketch for this card. I'm typing on my laptop right now and the sketch is on my desk top. I'll add it later.

Hey, don't forget to scroll down and check out the card I created for Christmas Stampin All Year Long . . .there's a new challenge this week!!

Hope you all have a beautiful day!!
