Stitching on cards and a CUTE box!

Wow! I'm having a hard time keeping up with challenges from around the bloggin' world and from SCS! I did manage to get a couple things done though and I'll continue to plug along with the others!
This card was created for Jeanne and Sherry's Just Because We Wanna Challenge on Sundays. This week's challenge was to use stitching on cards. It could be REAL or FAUX stitching. So I went down to the basement, dug out the sewing machine, dusted it off and gave it a whirl!! I rather like how it turned out...the paper is some new Basic Grey Figgy Pudding and the stamp set is Flaky Friends.
This next box was a challenge on SCS today! I LOVE learning new things!!!
Isn't this box just the cutest????? I had York Peppermint Patties in the cupboard so I made it a Christmas theme. It would be super cute with Halloween goodies inside as well ;)
When you flip it open you can see through an acetate piece, that piece flips up so you can access whatever you put inside! This box can be found on SCS here. Be sure to check it out!!

I love stitching on cards, it is a perfect way to add another dimension. Your snowmen card is adorable and I just have to go for the instructions to make that gorgeous box, not sure mine will turn out as well as yours though. That might be my project for tonight! Thanks!
