Companion Challenge #2 Crafting with Cristina- Altered cigar box

Hello again...what a pleasure to play again with Cristina in her 2nd Companion Challenge that this week is to Recycle something we possible will throw out... well first let me tell you my husband is a Cigar Lover and this box that I decided to recycle was about to hit the trash..

I made this box late last night, took the picture and then ask my self what I'm going to do with the box, well I work with 15 other ladies in my office between medical assistant, medical secretary and physicians which all have kids or grandkids.. so I took the box to work this morning and decided to do a raffle, there was so much excitement over my idea... they wanted to pay for the raffle.. no way .... this was my giveaway for Happy Thursday, at lunch time I draw the winner and one of the medical assistant won.. and we all have fun..
So here are the pictures

I was checking to create a late night card out of the sketch at Mojo Monday blog... but ones I started the card it turn to be my own creation...
A Hobby Lobby store just open here few exits north and I had to check it out... got some nice paper books from Design Studios and few spools of ribbon, part of tonight inspiration. Use Wild Card cartridge and my Gypsy on my cricut for the base of the card on craft paper, spellbinder Nestabilities, new ribbon and papers.
So here is my late night creation... not good for the Mojo Monday challenge.. but good enough for a b-day lady..
Will love a comment... see you girls around...
