BUTTERFLY GIFT SET

Happy Monday all!!! WOW!! I had a super busy weekend working the vendor event at Hodges Nursery but it went very well and their is lots of donations going to the Durham Blossoms Relay for Life Team so I am excited about that! I took yesterday to recuperate and laid around, read my book, and watched television with the fam since it was pouring outside - it was nice and lazy and just what I needed to get ready for another really busy week!! So, I thought I would share with you one of the gift sets I made - it has one of the spa sets in it with a matching notecard set and I love how it turned out!  This first pic is just of the notecards - I used some Cameo Coral card stock with my Chocolate Chip and some patterened paper from the Sweet Pea collection and I love how rich it looks together!  This is a 3x3 card set with a matching box to hold the cards and envies.  The stamps are from the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set and the tiny butterfly is from the Charming stamp set.  I love that little butterfly, I have been stamping it on everything, lol! 
This next photo shows the spa set and holder that I made to add the notecards too and I love how the embosslit butterflies look on this!! What a fun little die!!! I mean, it cuts AND embosses all kinds of little butterflies so there is sooo much you can do with it!! And, I added some of the yummy chocolate chip taffeta ribbon to this set - love how it looks, makes everything sooo much more pretty, lol!!
I have to say, these spa sets were a big hit as many folks were looking for gifts for mom's day and such so I was pretty pleased about that. And, the holders just add a little panache to the set and make it look finished.

Here is a photo of the whole set together so you can see what a nice little gift package this makes for someone special.  Sorry for the angle on the picture, it was really hard to get it all in one shot and still make it look presentable, lol!!!! Now, I am off to prep for a class and a workshop so lots of stamping for me today - yippee!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my job!!! Thanks for stopping by all, I appreciate each and every comment!
