My MIL's Birthday

It's my Mother-In-Law's birthday tomorrow so I thought I would share the matching card and pressie I made for her. The card uses one my My Besties images so I'm entering it into the My Besties Challenge to include an animal and for the My Besties UK Challenge to use circles. I'm also adding it to Papertake Weekly's Occasion-ally Challenge seeing as it's a birthday card and present and for Scrapbook Stamp Society's Challenge #14 Anything Goes.

And here's the card...

And the inside...

And here's the present. It's a Kaisercraft Wishing Well MDF kit that I have painted and decorated. (Excuse the dodgy background but it wouldn't fit in my light tent as it was too big!

This is a close up of the front roof.

A close up of the money slot.

And finally a view of the back.

Hope she likes it and I have remembered to put some money in it already as it is bad luck to give an empty money box to someone!
