Playing With Matches!

Yep...these match boxes really light my fire!





I'm having a contest with myself...to see how much fooferie I can use on a single
box before it collapses under it's own weight! ;}




If I do say so myself...its those glittery sides that I find to be simply smokin' hot!




And maybe one or more of these will make their way to our give away day?
Hope you'll join us, link up or just check it out! All the details very soon!






Be sure to stop by Chari's for more SUNDAY FAVORITES




And don't miss a single pinkalicious treat @ Beverly's PINK SATURDAY !

  7. Too cute! I love it!

    We always have some decorated match boxes in the shop that I work in-Joyworks, usually the current holiday theme. My co-worker and friend Rita, whom I refer to as "the little Match Girl" does them for the most part these days.

    I was on a beachie kick for a while in my crafting though and I did some with ivory paint/sand and shells. The textures were pretty fun!

    But I love love love your creation. I'm glad I found you during the OWOH event!

    Stop by and see what I've been up to!!
