Hi Cyber Girl Friends! :) I hope all of you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! In case any of you are curious, none of my little creations have made it to the Top 10 Favorites in any of the Color Challenges. :( I am going to continue stamping away & having a great time creating. Maybe one day, I will make it to the Top 10 & if I am really fortunate, I will get chosen to be a member of a design team! :) Anyone in need of a Cardstock Cupcake or a DieCutz Diva on their design team? :) My inspiration for my basket of goodies comes from a special someone, MY Chemo Buddy. She is having a birthday this month and her favorite color is YELLOW, favorite scent is VANILLA & favorite flavor of tea is GREEN tea. I just had to use the ever so popular SU Cheep Talk set again! :) Those little birds are SOOO cute, I just want to pinch their cheeks! :) Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! Please feel free to leave a comment. Be Sweet! Until next time...
Here is a brief description of the items in the basket:
1.) The VANILLA scented candle jar topper was made by layering several colors of cardstock cut from Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Nesties & embellished with the stamped bird & flower.
2.) The tin has an Organza pouch inside that is filled with GREEN tea. The lid is decorated with the following: cardstock, a tag made using Spellbinders Labels One die set, a discontinued Sizzix Teapot die cut that is embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder & stamped with a flower. The tag attached to the tea tin, was cut using the Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Nesties. On the back of that Scalloped Circle tag it reads, "I wish we could sit down
together and have a cup of tea, but since we can't, when you have this one, I hope you'll think of me. Unknown"
3.) My "Cheep Talk" card.
4.) The birdhouse was cut using the FREE pattern that can be found at http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2009/05/introducing-bird-watching-additions.html After cutting out the birdhouse, I stamped & embossed the flower images on it. The birdhouse has an Organza pouch inside that is filled with VANILLA potpourrii.
