For a Special Friend

After completing this project for a precious friend, I checked to see what challenges it might meet the criteria for.  I found three: Tuesday Morning Sketches (buttons and ribbon), Tuesday Throwdown #11 (stitching - faux or actual) and Kitchen Sink (stitching)  You can click on the photos for details.

Tin, which will be filled with 18" pieces of ribbon

Top of tin

 I used the SU For All You Do stamp set and my current favorite CTMH paper (Veranda) to create a card and gift for a special friend who has done a lot for me and my family in recent months.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Hi, Marie! I had no idea you were back to blogging again (and boy have you!!). Sure wish you had a subscriber button so I would receive your latest as you post --hint, hint! ;)

So...I've been through a couple pages of your latest posts and I can't tell: Did you sign up with SU? or are you still with CTMH? (or dare I say, are you with both?...I know it's a no-no, but it happens -lol). I don't have time to comment on all of your beautiful cards, but chose this one in particular because it's too lovely not to comment on! The card --inside and out-- and the matching tin are wonderful, and I'm sure your friend will treasure these gifts. The colors here are so soothing. tfs and hoping all is well for you and yours.
