For (Another) Friend

Sincere apologies for having been absent for a bit. September is the start of the birthday onslaught season for me and this week just gone I have had 8 birthdays in 1 week alone!!! As a result....I have much to share with you, I just need the time to post it all!!

I have a dear friend who LOVES the colour YELLOW!!! A lot of you may know her and when you see the photos of the gift I made for her...the dots will join! She is incredibly strong and durable with all that she does in her daily living and I wanted to send her a little something to show her how special I think she is. My real challenge for this was that I RARELY use yellow....hee hee hee.

For the card, I used a layout that I had done here.

I used a Mustard SWM with the Saffron which gave a lovely effect.....

For the diary I made, I found a luscious flocked yellow paper at my local craft store. From there it all came together quite nicely. Here is the diary...

I kissed the edges of the yellow flower with Chocolate Chip ink to "vintage" up the whole feel.

The flocked paper made the diary feel so lovely underneath your fingers

Finally, here is the gift and card together......

Thanks for popping by. Be sure to do so fairly regularly over the next couple of weeks as I have lots of boxes and more co-ordinated gift sets to share with you.

What a beautifully coordinated gift & card. You are such a star when it comes to that! I am not really a yellow person ... but did fall in love with this soft colour here! Hugs xx
PS Sorry for being neglectful! Blog hopping is on my 'to do' list ... but just seems to be at the bottom of the list at the moment! Hugs xx
