StampFairy Friday

Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a really nice Thanksgiving.  We had a really great time here.  I even cooked.  I was all too happy to just stay in my pajamas all day and get pizza.  I told that to my sister and all she said back was "but Miss, you hate pizza!"  LOL  She's right, its not one of my favorites.  Well, I decided I was being selfish so I made a really nice dinner for my Mom, my children and me.  I have to admit, it was quite good.  The day was beautiful, it was about 80 degrees, the Patriots won and it was just a really great day.

Well, today's project looks like a card, but it holds a little surprise....


So here's the front.  Meet the newest release, Josy (5).  There are a lot of Josy images in the StampFairy store and this one decided to play in the ribbon.  I did follow the sketch from Truly Scrumptous and they had an additional challenge to Think Pink.  I love pink and green as Christmas colors, they're so fresh and whimsical and perfect for the Josy image.

Now I said there was surprise - just turn the card around and here's the surprise....


The card is attached to this cute little gable box that is filled with yummy Lindor truffles.  So this created and card and a gift all in one!

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Gable Green, Pretty in Pink (SU)
Paper:  Pink Snowflakes (My Time Made Easy)
Copics:  E00, E02, E33, E37, G05, R02, RV02, RV10, RV29, YG00, YG03
Tools:  Gable box SVG (LSS), Cricut/SCAL, Cuttlebug, Snowflake Dots embossing folder, Oval cutters (CM), Word Window punch ( SU)

I hope you like my project and that it inspires you to create unique gifts for your kids' teachers, or your postal carrier or just someone you want to give a little treat to.  Happy Friday!  Thanks for stopping by.  Now head on over to StampFairy World to see the cute little freebie that Gerda has to share with you and then get ready to shop... all images are 50% off!!!  And you don't even have to fight any crowds to pick up your favorites.  Have fun!

Your project is just darling. I'm glad you enjoyed your day. I was sick in bed all day!! No turkey, no mashed potatoes, no stuffing. I guess I saved myself the calories.

Hmmm...you hate football???
