Not Just Cards Challenge blog - November Challenge - Anything Goes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead. I am into my second week of invigilating. On Saturday we had a day catching up on jobs. While the weather was good we finished dismantling the shed and swept up all the leaves.  On Sunday we had a day of visiting parents and having a meal with my husband's and their wives. I am so looking forward to our cruise which is in less than a week's time.

The November  challenge starts today at the Not Just Cards Challenge blog and the theme is the ever popular Anything Goes.

This is the commission card I made for our friend's 80th Birthday. If you saw him you really wouldn't believe that he is 80.

I was asked to make this after my friend's wife  saw the exploding box  card that I made for my father-in-law.  The outside was easy to decorate with papers from The Works and the dies from the Nautical scene set from Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine. 
Our challenges are fun to enter. If you click on the logo you will be taken to the current challenge. 

The ship in the middle is a Tattered Lace die. It is held in place with gel glue that I left to set over night. 

Here is a video of the box opening. I am not sure if it will work but I did try. 

There is the inside of the box and the lid. I do like making this style of card. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 

Happy Crafting
