Hello, crafty friends! Julie O here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. It's Friday! And a very special one for me. This is my last day of full-time work. I'm starting 3 weeks of vacation. When I go back to work, it will be part-time. After working 45-50 hour weeks the last 30 years of my life, I still can't believe that I'll be working 3 days a week. I hope the plan works!

I have a delightful card in a box that was on my blog yesterday. It's so cute, I'm showing it again today.

These card in a boxes are so popular right now, that
I just had to try it. This one is a file from The Cutting Cafe.
And, it was very fun to make.

I have several views of the box. Here's a straight on shot of it:

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥I made this card for my BFF. We're both big dog lovers, so I used some Unity stamps that had a dog theme to them.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥What makes this card-in-a-box different from others, though, is the Pinque Peacock 3/4 inch yellow fabric covered button.

I attached the fabric covered button to the middle of
a flower. It matched the yellow of the DCWV paper
perfectly, and added that extra little something. Beautiful!
This was my fist card-in-a-box, but it certainly won't
be my last. I loved creating this with my Silhouette.

This card is one that is on my to do list - (which of course if very lengthy) but seeing yours moves it up the list a lot more. This is awesome!
