Its not a card ....... Its a money box ...........

This time I made another money box out of a pringles large crisp tube,
I cut a slot in the plastic lid for the money,
covered the outside in the green paper my youngest son chose,

who then helped me use my whisper pens colouring the rock star stamps
then we cut them out and stuck them randomly around the tube.

I am entering this into the challenges over at -
Creative Belli - Alter It
they are both new challenges starting today, as I did not have a card to post this morning,
I was going to post this money box and it worked well for these two challenges,
my son is already starting to save money so it is working well.
Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Angie,
This is fantastic and great that your son was able to get involved. I would love to be there when it's full and you both count the money. It will hold zillions.

What a sweet thing you did with your son!!! If I was there, I'd put a little something in it for him -- Acutally I think you should give him a quarter for every comment! -- (giggle) I'm really not trying to make trouble. I just think this is a FANTASTIC idea!!! Thanks for participating in the Creative Belli Challenge.
