Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks...

Yeah!!! It's Friday!!! Today is actually the start of our weekend. My hubby got a "Family Day" which means we have a wonderful 4 day weekend. I am so grateful sometimes for the few perks we get as a military family.

I promised a gable box and it is a gable box you will get. In fact, I will do you one more, okay 2 more. There are 3 gable boxes. I actually made 4 but I only took a picture of 3 because that is all I had finished before I had to leave for the party.

I don't know if you remember this post but it is the same thing, just changed up the embellishments. I am pleased with how it turned out. I just wish I had more time to think about how I was going to embellish it but it went over fairly well.

I am going to make this short. Lots to do and not a lot of time, as usual.

I realized too that this box qualifies for the newest Whimsy challenge. The challenge was to use flowers on your project. They have changed their rules too so go by and check it out, even if you don't have Whimsy stamps yet *wink*

stamps: PTI polka dot basics, Whimsy Baseball Connor
ink: PTI summer sunrise, staz-on jet black
paper: PTI kraft, vintage cream, black; Joann's orange
Queen & Co., brads, Making Memories "Chloe's Closet" buttons, SU! linen thread, detail silver embossing powder for the bat, Micheal's cream twill ribbon, crop-a-dile eyelets, I can't remember where the flower came from.

I think that is everything. I hope you enjoy the eye candy. Have a great weekend. I may or may not be back on Monday depends on the weekend.

I do have something I started. I didn't mention it but Our Craft Lounge was doing a blog hop for all the sets they were putting out for the summer. With every blog there was a giveaway of one of the stamp sets. Well, I actually one of the new sets and I was so excited too. I am not going to mention which one but they are so fun to color. I hope to have some stamp time on Sunday and I can get you some new stamp eye candy for Monday.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Those are such cute boxes! You did a fantastic job! I found there are a lots of perks to being a military family and a once in awhile 4 day weekend is one for them for sure! Enjoy!

This turned out so cute!! And you were wondering what to do.
We get a four day weekend also but not because of the military. I remember those time we we had extra because the military just decided to give it to us.
Enjoy your weekend.
