St Patricks Day ~ Thinking of You Card in a Box

Hi Bloggers -

This is my second card in a box creation. Come back tomorrow when my posting goes live for Daydream Designs to see my first card in the box creation.

I am using the tutorial by Mary from Cardz TV to create my box. I saw another tutorial in writing form in blog land - however, if you like hands on video learning click Here for instructions. It really is an easy make.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day. Gail
