I had a few hours and felt pretty good for a change and thought I would treat myself to some challenge blog hopping, however I am not sure it was a good thing. I have found several blogs that are limiting how you enter their challenges and that is fine. It is their challenge blog so they can do whatever they choose. I have said that to say to the challenges I have entered with these creations, first of all I enter challenges for the fun of it. (of course it's always fun if you do win). Secondly I do combine challenges, if this goes against your rules, feel free to delete my entry from the challenge.

Had so much fun making these two boxes.

Dutch Dare Make a Gable Box
