SKULL Altered Cigar Box crackle finish

A friend of ours has been giving me his wooden cigar boxes.  His daughter asked if I would alter a box for her with a skull and cross bones theme.   I went with the theme with a girly twist.
I have been on vacation this week and planned on going camping most of the week.  But we have had very hot weather here to the point where I didn't really leave the house for 4 days.   I was able to get this box altered and I will give it to Nikki later today when I get to the campground (finally).  If you want to know how I made this and what I used, see videos Thanks for stopping by.

Here is a video of the finished box.

Door sign English Hunter

My daughter asked me to make a new door sign for her apartment door.  She asked for a English fox hunting theme.  Here is what I came up with.  It measures 11"x11".  I cut the shape from Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge.   The horse, rider and fence I cut with Sure Cuts a Lot (SCAL).   I cut the shape out of Chocolate Chip card stock from Stampin' Up and cut shape out a couple of more times in red and black and pieced together the rider.   
 I used paper and silk flowers and leaves to decorate the My Mind's Eye paper.

 The embellishments are from sets of brads also My Mind's Eye Lost and Found II collection I purchased from    I also used the Cuttlebug with wood grain folder on the fence for texture, white gel pen and brown glitter glue. 
I hung a bell at the bottom with a round paper clip so that it rings each time she opens and closes her door.  I added a pair of google eyes in the flowers--inside joke.  lol
