Lawnscaping Challenge, Throw Back Thursday and Happy Mail

Hello readers!! It is finally Thursday. One more day until the weekend and my night to go see the play "Wicked." I am so excited!!

Before, that, though, I am going to post a quick project I created for a blogger that has been having a tough time. It is just a few things that I picked up and one thing I ordered online when I put in an order for stamps last week. Sometimes getting a package with a card helps when you are down in the dumps. I am hoping this puts a smile on her face!!

I am not going to show the contents but here is what it looks like when I was done packaging it up.


I wrapped the gift in white tissue and put it in a glassine bag. I then put a few sequin leaves and stapled the bag shut. I used yellow wired ribbon I had for the bow. The tag was created using the retired "Season of Thanks" set from Stampin up! that was colored in using Copic Markers. If you remember, I used the same set for the card I created in this blog post.

I then die cut the image out with an MFT die that I adjusted to fit the image. I layered it over a plethora of leaves that I die cut with the Lawn Fawn "Stitched Leaves" die and a pre-cut doily from the craft store. This leaf set is one of my absolute favorites!!!


I adhered the embellishment to the ribbon using a tiny clothes pin. I really LOVE how this little gift came out. I am hoping that it gets to my blog friend in one piece!!

Thank you for browsing today. Have a great day!!
