THANKYOU BOX GIFT SET

Hi all!!! Still not feeling very well so this will be a quick post! This is a thank you note boxed gift set I made in warm, fall colors - the box holds four cards and envies. I used my yummy chocolate chip card stock as the base for both my box and the base of my cards - it is my absolute favorite color for so many things and it truly does remind me of the fall season, hot chocolate and the holidays - I know, I am weird, but hey, it is what it is! This is one of the sets that I made for my craft fair booth last weekend and it was a hit which made me happy! Here is a close-up of actual card inside the box! I will leave you with the recipe and then I am off to bed to lay down and hopefully start to feel better - I don't have time to get sick, waaayyy too much to get done before I leave next week on vacation! So, off to take some more drugs and hopefully wake up and feel well enough to work on some workshop projects that I need for the end of this week (yes, I booked two workshops this week, what was I thinking???!!!!!)
Card and box recipe:
Paper - Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Naturals Ivory card stock (dp is retired SU!)
Inks - Chocolate Chip classic ink
Stamps - One of a Kind
Accessories - Jumbo Eyelets, Circle Scallop Punch, Large and Small Oval Punches, Ticket Corner Punch, Sticky tape, Stampin' Dimensionals, Chocolate Chip narrow and wide grosgrain ribbon, mini glue dots, paper piercer, Scallops Die Cut for Big Shot

First on the agenday, get well. Very, very pretty set. I just have to tell ya'...brown is one of my favorite colors and I get made fun of, from my darling hubby, because quite often I mention the beautiful newly tilled fields...and how gorgeous that dirt is in all its glory. So now my hubby says, "Is that pretty dirt honey?"
