It's anything but a card ...

Hi Folks

This is a very quick post as I am off in the morning to Cardiff to see Elton John, so I hope this posts as it is supposed to do.

At  MAWTT, Pami is hosting this week, and her chosen theme is Anything but a Card.  Our sponsor this week is
Every Crafts a Pound, where you will find a host of really good deals on branded crafting goodies.

I have something that I have been trying to finish off for a while, and kept putting it aside, but I have finally finished it, so decided to use it for this challenge.  And, it really is anything but a card - it is a Configuration Box.  I actually started this at the ArtsyCrafts Tim Holtz event, and have been faffing about trying to decide what to put in it.  This is the finished result, and I am pleased with it.   The photo is poo!  But I will try and get some decent ones. 

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Bearley Mine - Anything goes
Craft Room Challenge - Anything goes
Creative Craft Challenges - Moveable parts
Deep Ocean Challenge - Anything goes
Everybody Art Challenge - Distress
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Shopping our Stash - Complete an unfinished project
Try it on Tuesday - Weird and Wonderful
Craft your Passion - Anything goes
Haunted House Design - Macabre Monday - Pleasure and Pain (you need to look closely at the doll!)
Make It Monday - Anything goes

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
