Summer Gift Basket



Hi! I have been a busy girl the past few days. I got a little stamping time in, but I also did a little volunteer work at my daughter's school yesterday and I have been doing a little window shopping with my mother-in-law who's in town until Friday. The weather is getting warm here, but it is also very windy. This project is for a fun gift exchange that is going on at SCS with some of the challenge stalker girls. The theme for this month was picnic and had to include a card, a project with the color red (like a checkered tablecloth) a food treat and had to be less than $15.00.

For the card, I used a RAK bella image and DP from Close to My Heart. For the project I CASE'd an idea from Christina who did an adorable spring tic tac toe board for the last MFT Designer Challenge. The gift also includes a Potluck recipe book that I added a band in coordinating paper to, a Grill It apron (picked up at Ross) and a box of dark chocolate peppermint patties, yum!

I am going out of town this weekend, so unless I get something done a little later today (not likely) I won't be back to blogging until Sunday. Have a terrific week!

Thanks for stamping by!

What a fund idea. That "Fella" card is stunning!! I really like the tic tac toe game. I might have to case that idea to keep my 2 girls entertained when we finally get on that looooooooong (16+ hours) flight back to the states ;)
