My stationery box for charity

I hope you're all well.  My day did not start off as planned - 7.45am the power went out and stayed off for 2 hours!  Then, just as I settle into my craft room to create I get a phone call from school saying my little guy is not feeling well.  I pick him up and he prompty starts throwing up :(   The up-side is that he slept all day so I managed to craft aferall!

I've been busy creating another stationery box - this time for a charity event I volunteer for.  We always hold a silent auction during the event so instead of doing just cards, I thought I'd do this box for something different.

The set of animal stamps is from SU! and inked with Memento Rich Cocoa.  The paper is from a Costco stash.  I used different nestie label sets on the cards, embossing folders, MS zigzag punch and lots of raffia!

The tags are stamped with each animal design then distress inked around the edges with Tea Dye.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  I love when you're able to come by and leave a comment - I enjoy reading them so much!  I hope I'm able to sit down and catch up on some commenting tonight - I just haven't had time to blog hop today!
