Beautiful Card Container

Hello & Happy Sunday!

Another beautiful day here in MO! :)
I didn't do any stamping today but I wanted to share with you something I made for a card for a friend. Back a few months ago when I first got to Joplin, Kelsey picked up a container at Sam's that was filled with apple slices. Once it was empty I thought to myself that I could probably do something with it. I had thought to make a package of Christmas cards for Miss Emily back home but that never happened. So, a few weeks ago I dug this container out, decorated it and filled it with many cards for Emily. I got the word today that she received her package so I can now go and share it. She loved it!!!

I really love this hobby of mine! :)
Finding new things to alter is something I love to do!

Needless to say, she loved her card container but loved the cards that were in it even more! That makes me very happy! :)

Friend Card Container:

Stamps: Friend Tag from SU Two Terrific Tags (retired & set #20)
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Groovy Guava, PTI White, Groovy Guava Prints DSP
Accessories: Martha Stewart Border Punch, Sm & Lg Tag Punches, SU Daisies Die, Summer Sun Corduroy Buttons, Kaiser Yellow Pearls, Groovy Guava Grosgrain, Hot Glue Gun, Dimensionals, Scor Tape

That's all for me today!
Thanks for stopping by!

How totally clever to alter that container to become a home for some hand-made cards! I just love those beautiful papers you used for them and I know your friend did too!
Happy Valentines Day to you too, and btw - YES! I DID pick up that cheapie stamp at L&L! :)

I already commented on this one, but the name Emily reminded me of Emily from the Bachelor, do you still watch that show? This season I'm really wanting Emily with Brad. :)
