Karen's Doodles - a joint challenge

Good Morning girls
We're having another joint challenge among all the Karen's Doodles blogs so I'm hoping you'll play along again this week.
You'll probably have seen already that it's not a card challenge this time around. Infact, we'd love you to make anything but a card!! So get those thinking caps on ladies!!!

I've made a little trinket box. Isn't amazing what you can do with four match boxes? This is one of Karen's latest images. It's from the Thank You Girl set. I loaded the image into my photo software and added the sentiment myself then I coloured her with my usual medium, copic markers. The papers are My Minds Eye (sob, sob, sob and sob again) I've stroked these for weeks without cutting them, they are lush!!! I finished off with a little ribbon, two little charms, a padlock and key and three tiny gems. So that's my effort ladies, I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with.

  14. Lol, you sound the same as me. Buy the papers and just look and feel them not wanting to cut them up. I have boxes full and I have this one too, but I have used it, only this week though when I got it at the last craft fair I went to in February. Love the trinket box, fab papers, lol. Hugs Tracy x
