Apple pie box

Good morning! I made this box using instructions my friend, Tracy Harp created for Cornish Heritage Farms. Here's an example on her blog Inky Doodles. Her goal was to create a box which would hold a small canning jar for all the homemade goodies she gives away at holiday time. I can imagine a jar of apple butter or apple jelly in this, but I'm not domestic in that way, so for me it would hold an apple cider candle or some other small gift!
I am struggling with getting my photos where I want them on my laptop so I hope you'll forgive the short post. I'm also on some pain drugs to help with my hip and back pain while they figure out what is causing it. I probably won't even make it through Dancing with the Stars!

I do have the colors jotted down, but will add them tomorrow. I also want to give a shout out to my friend, Lisa who is part of the JUGS challenge (Just us Girls). She chose the colors for the challenge this week and that is what guided my colors. Here's Lisa's blog, Kind Creations
Check it out!

And finally, I have a winner of last Monday's card for the Magnolia-licious accessories challenge. My winner is number 38, which is Jan Farnsworth. Jan, could you contact me at DROWLEY6@stny.rr.com
If I don't hear from her by Friday, I will choose again. Thanks for your patience, everyone!

Thanks for visitng today! See you tomorrow!
Cheryl
