It's always nice to spoil someone special on their birthday, and that was my full intention for my scrapbuddy, Val.
However, me being me, and organisation not being my best point,
I was (more than) a little late with my gift
*ahem* (2 months late, but shh!).
In the end I sent her a packet full of friendship and a few little goodies to let her know how much I appreciate knowing her.
A little card, based on an inspiration which Kaly chose to publish
on the Scrap etc forum:
Then an envelope made with my We'r'Memory Keepers punch board.
I so love that tool, it's great to be able to custom-make any size envelope I like!
Which containted a little card I made using a sketch proposed by Ninie
as her challenge for March on Scrap etc:
Inside the card, a little bit of scrappy-happy goodness:
Then I used some of the off-cuts to decorate the front of
this Tim Holtz booklet of alphabet letters:
I added in a sachet of die-cuts :
and the less glamorous (but-always-useful) roll of double-sided tape:
To make the surprise last as long as possible,
I wrapped each part individually in kraft and twine :
Sorry for all the paper you needed to put into the recycling afterwards, Val, but I thoroughly enjoyed preparing this little parcel for you.
Hope you had as much fun discovering all the little bits'n'pieces!
(sorry, Over-blog is annoying, I can't put any links into my post,
but you will find them in my sidebar).
Happy weekend, everybody!
