Always Appreciate Life Gift Set

A friend and coworker received some devastating news this month and I wanted to do a little more than just a regular get well card...I hope it's inspiration as well as bringing a smile to her face when she looks at it...and knows that I'm thinking about her and will remember her in my prayers.

I cased a card that I had made last year...and for the gift wrapping instead of a box or bag I used a soda bottle.

As a reminder I made and attached this gift tag to the whisk to remind her that she can beat this.

I put the whisk inside the decorated soda bottle and tied the top with raffia.

This the fun recipe:

Stamp sets: brush stroke alphabets upper and stamp craft alphabet.
Card stock: Melissa Frances Endure, Hope, Strong, and designer stickers...yellow chipboard...assorted heart tissue paper...and cream printer paper.
Ink: pixie pink.
Markers: pixie clear and rose star glitter pens.
Punches: 2 1/4" scallop square...2 3/4" circle...lace edger...primitive heart......S/U scallop square...heart to heart...and tag corner.
Additional supplies: snail...crystal effects...s/u mini glue dots...stampin' mix mini stitch ribbon...burgundy raffia...soda brad...and pink whisk from Kitchen Aide.

Inside the card i used cream printer paper...and as everyone knows that is my absolutely fav embelli...then I used my lace edger on the bottom of the paper.

Thanks for sharing this project with me this morning...I love how it turned's going to be a hot and humid one try and stay cool...I'm so happy to be back stampin' will take me time to catch up and get going but I can do it...a BIG thank you to my BFF Carol for filling in for did a great job...thank you.
