Joan's Gardens #3 Weekly Challenge

I have added some wonderul new products that are in stock, so keep scrolling down.

Did you see all the beautiful cards from last week?  A big thanks to all of you who entered week #2 Challenge.  You can see them here.

This week we might be taking you out of your comfort zone, but believe me you will have fun. Please read about Week #3 Challenge below.

 I am very busy trying to get all of the orders shipped, so I have not had any time to work on a new project.  Bless Selma....she volunteered and made absolutely one of the most gorgeous gifts I have seen.  It is called an Explosion Box .  Be sure to visit Selma to read the details.

This is the Explosion Box when lid is on
This is a close up of the lid. The lid holds the box together.

When you take the lid off, the sides "explode" out and lay flat.
