Christy's Pocket-FULL

Christy's book is small and made up of blank canvas pages, already formed with a pocket. I painted it first with blue acrylic paint, then gesso'd a diamond stencil on top. I added accents with sharpie markers, glued on a ghost flower image (colored with Sharpies), and clipped on a dragonfly.
The back is fuzzy rub-ons - too fun! As you can tell, I'm still into floral themes.
For the tag in the pocket, I used my Club Scrap stencil again along with Color Mists. I think the finished piece looks very calming. The front is the reverse stencil, while the back is the opposite.

Friendship Basket

Our church passes around a Friendship Basket between families. We received it last week - full of snacks to enjoy during "football time in Tennesseeeeeee". Here's what I put together for the next family: a yummy quart jar full of the mixin's for peanut butter/M&M cookies, some chili seasonings, a fall themed dish towel, a couple of candles (cinnamon stick flavored), and an Autumn Angel from the Willow Tree collection.

I also put new ribbon on the basket that coordinates with the monogramed card I made. I used my new circle stamps and punch from Papertrey Ink.

Its nice to be back home after being gone for a few weeks. My sister continues to improve. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.
