Gift & Card

Hello Friends,

When I was in the hospital, my friend Debby sent me flowers and lots of cards.  I wanted to make her a little gift and a thank you card.

Here is the gift box with a candle & some candy.  The waterfall card and owl box are from Acorn Autumn SVG Cuts.  I embossed & chalked the "wheat" using my wood embossing folder.

Here is the waterfall closed.

And this is what it looks like open.  The sentiments are from Craftin Desert Divas Short & Sweet Tags

This is a closeup of the owl.  Isn't he cute?  The skittles are from Double Click Connections and I used Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalks for all of the chalking.

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Decorate To Celebrate - Challenge #110 Anything Goes - (treat box)
Craftin Desert Divas - Linky Party Photo Inspiration

  16. Hello Chriss, I am so out of the loop and behind on my blog visits to everyone. I didn't realize you were in the hospital. I take it from the cuteness of this darling gift that you are on the mend. That candy box is just adorable and I love your waterfall card. I have never...ever made one! So precious. I am happy you shared this with us at Craftin Desert Divas! Hope today is a happy, healthy day for you. xx Donna K

  17. I love the detailing on your waterfall card. Only ever made one myself before and they are such fun to make. hugs Mrs A.
